Wow - can you believe we're over 2/3's the way through this amazing blog hop organised by Smeared and Smudged?! Hope you're enjoying it as much as I am :). If you've gotten a little lost along the way, the blog roll is on my sidebar :)
Today I am sharing a tag I've made, with reference to Edgar Allan Poe, the gothic writer and poet. He was one of the first gothic style writers, and in my mind his work The Raven is inextricably linked with Halloween.
I got a wonderful quote sheet from Gecko Galz to use in one of their challenges, and I have also shared this on their Facebook page :o)
I started with a Ranger tag in Kraft card (size 6 1/4" x 3 1/4") and firstly blended distress inks over it.
I used Dusty Concord, Brushed Corduroy, Faded Jeans and Spiced Marmalade to create a nice background on the tag.
I've then used some of the quotes from the Gecko Galz page, again having blended over them with distress inks, added a stamp of E A Poe himself from a Wendy Vecchi set, and a lovely little raven laser cut from That Craft Place. I've then finished with a metal MME sentiment 'be an original' and a Tim Holtz pen-nib. The ribbons are a velvety brown one, a striped organza one and a thinner cream coloured one.
I hope you like it :o)
Thanks for reading
