Day 13 of 31: Poe and his Crows

Greetings! Time for day 13!!! Today I am bringing you a card that uses a FABULOUS Rick St. Dennis image of Edgar Allan Poe, along with the Crows from Dreamweaver Stencils that I shared with you on Thursday. Hey! Did you know that Rick has a new Zibbet Shop? Check it is so organised and FULL of images! Over 400 of them! But first, take a peek at my project, please.

Truth be told, I had this image colored (and shown here) some time ago. But I never had it put onto a proper project. I knew I needed to do so this month! It went together so quickly.

I really enjoyed making him green. Zombie flesh looks good on him, no? As far as the stenciling, I simply used a small round stencil brush (from Dreamweaver) to apply my ink in a circular motion. Took all of 1 minute. I used Versa Craft ink (Tsukineko), which is such a wonderfully rich black.

I broke out this fabulous green paper that I had used for a Bombshell card at the beginning of the month. I loved the gradation of color that was similar to what I did with my Spectrum Noir markers. I hope you have enjoyed my rather simple piece for today. Though the coloring took quite some time, it was done a while ago. Please be sure to visit Rick's new Zibbit shop, as well as the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
