I have a stamped collaged ATC to show you today featuring POE...
 the stamps are a mix of SMEARED INK and DE-STEMPELWINKEL,
coloured with pencils.
 ALSO today I have a small altered box...
 I used embossed card to cover the outside, with metallic wax to highlight the embossing.
 Inside the lid I added a decoupaged heart... I used a SMEARED INK digi image for this,
printed out 8 times, coloured with alcohol inks, silicone to layer it up, i made a lining for the lid and used plastic mesh( the stuff you cover your guttering with) to keep the heart safe.
So thats it for me on DAY#2 ... next on the roll is Julia.... bet she has something great to share.
Our challenge at QUOTH THE RAVEN has another 3 weeks to run...
hope you'll have time to create something FOR THE LOVE OF POE.
See you tomorrow for DAY #3.
