In 2016 the Mayor of Baltimore declared Edgar Allan Poe's Birthday, January 19th as an official city- wide Poe Appreciation Day. At the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity we thought we'd join the fun with a 5-day progressive blog hop.
Here is my card for the hop, featuring one of the new and fabulous stamps released today, this a new zentangle raven from Lost Coast Designs, dressed smartly in his hat and heading to the party :
The raven is stamped and coloured with copics, then I fussy cut him and added a hat with a pom pom.
The background is made using nuance powders and the new zentangle feathers stamps.
To get the effect above I sprinkled some different colours of nuance powders onto my craft mat, spritzed it with water and then stamped into it and onto the water colour paper. I love the colour variations. Water soluble powders are so versatile. I lightly sponged the outside of the card with black ink.
The words 'Its a Party!' are from the Party Words set.
I hope you are enjoying the hop, and perhaps feel inspired to add your own creation :)
