Playing "catch up" here with a project that has been on my desk for awhile. It fits in nicely with the current Favorite Book Challenge at Left of Center so I photographed it with the book itself, The Unabridged Edgar Allen Poe.
The gorgeous Annabel Lee 2 is from Ike's Art and I've merged it with one of the digital papers from the Poe Boy pack from Smeared Ink. Annabel is colored with Copics but the lovely blood drips are part of the digi paper. WooHoo! I printed the paper several times so I could fussy cut and pop the skull and raven. I've used the "feathering technique" from Ike's fussy cutting and feathering video available in the Mixed Media University Group on the Smeared and Smudged Forum for the raven's feathers. Always lots of good stuff going on there.
I was also following the Tic Tac Poe Quest over at Quoth the Raven using the center horizontal row of Skull, 3D, and Emboss. I've used the Cuttlebug Fanciful Labels to cut, dry emboss and ink. The sentiment is a past offering from the Smeared Ink Rubber Club. (Forgotten lore indeed. Bet there's tons of it in the Unabridged Poe, it's 1124 pages long! Haven't quite made it through, yet.)
Here's the dimensional shot. The quill pen is part of the design, layered between the image and frame. The lovely framing uses two of the dies from my new Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28.
I'm also adding this to the Left of Center First Anniversary Anything Goes Challenge.
