Something Wicked Halloween!

Good morning!  Sherry here today with a fun and wicked Halloween card.  I’ve had this card in my mind for some months now and finally ordered the Crows so that I could get it completed.  You’ll need to envision that the crow is actually a raven however, because that was the inspiration for my card . . . Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.


The poem was printed out on cardstock, then inked using the Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique, using Gathered Twigs, Dusty Concord and Wild Honey Distress Inks.  The edges were distressed and sponged with Gathered Twigs.

The raven and the sentiment, Something Wicked this Way Comes, from the Halloween Wicked Collection were both stamped on paper that had also been colored using the same technique and colors and above.   Both were stamped in black.  The sentiment was trimmed out and distressed.  The raven was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Circles, layering in size, ending with the Scalloped Circles. 


Black cardstock was used for the base of the card and purple for a second layer.  “Tapping” from the Crow stamp set was stamped in white pigment across the purple paper to add some extra dimension.  A piece of Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper was trimmed and sewn to the purple layer.  

The ribbon was dyed with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

That’s all for me today.  Thanks for joining me.
