The Raven Poe Poem

Here is an offering from The Dark Side.
This was inspired by an freebie image provided on Ikes World challenge - Edgar Allan Poe - thanks Suzy!

For the background I inked the poem, swiped it with Distress inks, sprayed it with black and copper, stamped a blot, misted it with water and blotted it,  ...  oh yes this was fun.
The image is cut and coloured with Copics and then lightly sponged with watered down distress ink.  I did cut off the bottom of the pedestal Because I like this shape better.

Image: Ikes World
Black spray: DecoArt
Copper spray: Perfect Pearls Mister
Stamp: Kaisercraft
Distress inks

Ohhhh I like this! I love that you colored it with copics and then went over it with the water downed ink as well...that is a great layer of texture. Just a fabulous card! Thanks for sharing with us at Color Crazy this week and hope to see you again.
