Gingersnaps #123 - "Ravens"

Continuing with the Go Poe / horror stories theme this month Gingersnaps Creations  random challenge this week (you have a month to play along) is ...........................................:-


Now regular readers and friends will realise that after taking part in a recent round robin journal all based on Ravens I became a little "ravened out" ..... but never being one to shirk a challenge I signed up for this challenge as part of the DT for Gingersnaps. Here is my Raven card ...... Nigel kindly loaned me his little goody bag of Raven stamps ...thank you so much!
 I believe the stamp I used is a Lost Coast design ... it is rather fab isn't it?
 I hope you like my card ... I have used a selection of distress inks and paints with various stencils and stamps.  Mr Poe has been printed out and outlined with charcoal pencil and gel pen.  The base of the card has been done onto journal pages and then ripped out to give me the notebook edges......
 My fellow gingers have as usual excelled themselves with an eclectic array of projects... take a look HERE!

PS.....this is one of the lovely reasons why I am not producing as much craft these days ....everytime I sit down to craft I have a very mischievous companion who runs away with my sponges, ribbon, tape etc....
I shall show you the other reason next time ..... she is just as gorgeous too!  Suzanne ~x~

A really gorgeous creation Suz. Love the inky background and stamping which sets Mr Poe off perfectly.

Lovely pic of your naughty puss too. Don't have that here, just bunnies that try to chew my craft boxes lol.

Hugs, Fliss xx

Awwwwww! So charming! This cat obviously adores having all of your attention.
Sorry---we happen to be cat lovers around here lol.
I do like your artistry on this one very much.
I like rough touces such as torn edges and find it more fun incuding one than lettng everything be too pristine, so you really caught my eye with those touches you chose! Love the layering effect--not too fussy, just right.
You have a fan.
