Just a quick post today.... after mondays long, long post i thought i'd just share one photo.
I have made a hanging POE ..... i used Poe,and Skeletal wings from the SMEARED INK , QUOTE THE RAVEN rubber stamp set.
The cage is a T!m Holtz die that i altered a bit.... cut some of the bars off.... i embossed it with rusty nail and verdigris embossing powders..... i hung black drop gems from the bottom....

you'll have to take my word for it but it is double sided....i stamped everything out twice..... the wings are a perfect match, front and back but Mr Poe had to have a bit of a hair cut to make him fit .... he actually needed it!..... i added a crown , that i stamped and embossed with verdigris powder onto black card, cut 'em out..... one crown each side of his head.

This for me was a quick fun project and i really enjoyed myself.... i shall also enter this at DESERT ISLAND CRAFTS, a brand new challenge site..... they give you a list of 10 things to choose from and you must use a minimum of 3 of them on your project...., i used 1, gems, 2 die-cuts, 3 embossing and maybe 4..... mystical/fantasy creature?

Ginger loft, ....things that FLY.

Creative stamp friends, ....use a DIE-CUT.

Crazy 4 challenges.... ... VINTAGE OR SHABBY CHIC... Mr Poe is both.
RES Q challenge... ....SOMETHING IN A LINE.... my gems are in a line at the bottom.

Thanks for visiting me lynx
