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!
