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.
