Not sure what it is. Not a card. Not a tag. Not a gluebook. I guess it's just art!
The backing is corrugated cardboard covered in Glimmer Mists and beeswax. The main part is a page ripped from a book ; distressed and inked with DI Vintage Photo. All the items are inked around the edge with Vintage Photo. Then there is a layer of black paper with white text on it. Used the binders edge punch.
Then I just did a collage of different images about the poem. Poe's head has a TH Circle Fragment with some Ginger Alcohol Ink on it to make more vintage. Same with the clock. Before I added the Fragments, I slapped on a couple layers of Mod Podge Matte. Oh. Before I glued the large raven down, I covered him in DI Rock Candy Crackle Paint.
It is rock solid! That baby will not tear, rip, break or shatter! Not sure what I will do with it, but I do like it. I really went "outside" this time! I really enjoyed putting this together.
