Happy Hallowe'en!

It's here already! I can't believe how quickly October has flown by.  I've made another raven, to go with my raven for the Gingersnap Creations challenge in *this* post.  I actually have three of these chipboard ravens, and had really hoped to have them all done by today.  Oh well. ;)  I am entering this little guy into Inspiration Emporium's challenge (just under the wire) to make a creation using black, orange, and purple.  The perfect color challenge for October, if you ask me, LOL!  For this raven, I started with a layer of black Ranger crackle paint, then covered and dabbed Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top.  Next come die cuts, borders, inked German text, and a fabulous sticker of poor Lenore....

Here she is in life....

And here she is in death....
Love these stickers, I tell ya! 


The raven's ruffle is made by sewing four pieces of colored crepe paper together, then cutting them into a fringe and pinching and fluffing.  The Happy Halloween ticket greeting in his beak is a Tim Holtz stamp, of course. ;)

Here are the two dark birdies together -
Have a delightfully spooky, Poe-ful Hallowe'en!!
