Anything Goes: Raven

I have another entry for the "Anything Goes" challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  I tried out a lot of different ideas for this one, but I had this cool background I wanted to use, and the Raven With Tree Branches stamp from Lost Coast Designs won out. 

I made this background using some astrological tissue paper I found online - really I loved the patterns on these papers.  I took a page from a vintage book and using matte medium I adhered my tissue paper to the book page.  I let it dry well then cut it into a square shape, trying to incorporate as much of the design as I could.  I edged it with black ink then mounted it to a torn edged piece of black card stock.

I stamped my Raven with black StayzOn ink onto another page from a vintage book and cut it out.  
That was a bit of a challenge, but slow goes it and it came out perfectly.  Using a glue stick I pasted the raven as shown and gave him a tiny black rhinestone for an eye.  I then sprinkled around a few matte silver star sequins for a finishing touch.

This one gets me in the mood for Halloween - can't wait!!  Please join us here on the Portal and submit your "Anything Goes" projects by the 14th of July for a chance to win some awesome free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
