Welcome to Day 7 of the 31 Days of Halloween
I'm sure that this is one of the most used quotes for Halloween projects but why mess with perfection? I thought I'd put a bit of a spin on Mr Poe...both figuratively and literally! I started off with the spiral stencil and black PanPastel which I sprayed with hair spray to set it. I then painted Trolley Grey Sorbet Dimensional paint over the entire image. It toned down the white and added a beautiful sparkle (which unfortunately can't be seen in this photo).
I then did a little surgery on Poe - grafting half of a skull onto his image. The "skull" Poe was also painted with a layer of the Trolley Grey. The regular side of Poe was left as is.
The card base is a panel of grey cardstock layered with a piece of cardstock painted with Imperial (purple) Sorbet Dimensional paint. I also added the stamped Poe quote and a Mulberry Raven to top it off.
I hope you've enjoyed my twist on this very famous tale...
