"Poe" card

I am in a swap at  http://www.illustratedatcs.com called Maxicard 6x4. The requirements are to use a postage stamp  to be part of the artwork or relevant to the stamp.

While cleaning up and looking though some piles (which I have many) I found this Poe stamp that I took of something that was mailed to me. So there he sits in a window inspired by the crow. Just perfect timing for this week in October.

Altered Postcard

I am hosting an altered postcard swap at my local meet up group. My daughter actually gave me this card from one her trips to Seattle. The images are from Ten Two Studios, April Fish and Dickens. I used some sandpaper to rough it up a little then used some green inks to mess around the skyline.

Ode to Lenore

This is my ode to Poe's Lenore, from the the poem "The Raven". It is from Ten Two Studios, the matchbook shrine, winged widows.  I also used the words from the bordered creepy sayings sheet.

Hand Colored Photographs

I have been playing with my photographs. I used Adobe Photoshop to make my photographs black and white images. I played with the contrast until most of the shadows were removed. After they were printed I used my Primsacolor markers to color in the images. They are artist trading card size for trade or swaps.

Three Witches Black Magic Recipes

This little book was made from black mini folders from Ten Two Studios. I also used their collage sheets. The one I chose were "Witches Brew Faux" and "Witchy and Poisonous Labels". I also used the "Bordered Creepy Sayings" and the "Spooky Bingo"
