BOO! said Poe to the Raven!

Hello Lost Coasters!
It's my turn to share some DT inspiration today.  We, the LCDesigners, are participating in the 7th annual 31 Days of Halloween blog hop hosted by Smeared Ink.  We are sharing projects every day for 31 days straight over on our Lost Coast Portal to Creativity event and challenge blog.
Stop by for tons of wicked cool Halloween inspiration and also see how you can win prizes every day!

On Oct 7, 156 years ago we bid farewell to the Master of Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe!
His memory lives on eternally in our art and in our hearts!

BOO! said Poe to the Raven
 was my featured project for Day 1 of the hop on Oct 1st!
 I used the following stamps:
I found the BOO MDF shapes in Target's $ section and could not resist altering them!  First I typed out Poe's poem "The Raven" in Photoshop CS6, printed them out, traced the shapes, cut them out and ran each piece through my Xyron to add permanent adhesive.  I then stamped each piece with stamps from both Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda with onyx black Verafine ink.  I painted the MDF shapes with black acrylic paint and adhered each stamped panel to the shapes then finished each piece with Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks applied with a Tim Holtz ink applicator.

Thanks for stopping by to see my project and I hope you'll join us over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and Stay to Play coz we're celebrating the count down to Halloween with our own little party too!  There's loads to see and do....
