Hi everyone! It's been a busy but lovely weekend. Yesterday I went with friends to Happy Stampers - Sarah was demoing in the afternoon so we made the most of the morning!
Yes, I did manage to spend a little bit of my cash, and as you might imagine it was mainly on stamps!
I fell in love with this cheeky Raven by Crafty Individuals and although I wanted to play last night I was just too tired.
Today following Church, then lunch out with son and grandchildren I had time to play before it got dark.
I made a background using Distress Oxides(Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso and Mustard Seed) After adding a little bit of stencilling, dots and Roman letters I stamped the image. I stamped a line of the Edgar Allan Poe verse onto green card and used Kaisercraft letters for the title ('the' was one of Alison Bomber's words from her quote stamps)I then added a film strip stamp to either side.
Now, here's the little tale that has me linking to Art Journal Journey and Linda's theme - Creature Comforts
Back in the 60's Hammer Horror films brought out quite few scary films...and some not so scary, such as The Raven, which starred Vincent Price (who starred in quite a few Hammer Horrors) and Peter Lorre, as quite a perky looking raven during parts of the film.
Although I had seen one or two of the scary ones this film was more humorous than others!
These days I am not so keen on horror films as they have become way too gory and lifelike.
Thanks for looking, Chris
