Homage - To Edgar, Tim and the Raven.

A strange title I know but the darkness of this creation, coupled with the bird (is it a raven?) and the challenge I am entering all played their part.

Working with a set of Tim's stamps I decided I would try out some sewing and acetate together.  I had used acetate sewn to cards many years ago, with the acetate used more as a cover over some pressed flowers.  In this piece I stamped on the back and front of the acetate with various images and sewed them onto a triple folded piece of card which had some sentiments stamped onto.  I personally like the depth of colour and the slightly Gothic feel of this card.

I used some additional word pieces, some ribbon a dragonfly brad and a flower in purple hues to finish off the piece.  So there it is, Edgar Allan Poe, Tim Holtz and a Raven (still not sure what bird it is) all in one place - where else would you get them?

Hope you like it?

So the challenge is HERE. It is the Cards Galore Challenge 'A Homage to Tim Holtz'.
