And the Raven, never flitting....

October 28th 2011


This new tag has been made for the Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge - Ravens! I've used images from a great "Poe" collage sheet from The Octopode Factory.


The background is watercolour paper & pencils - I love the effect! And printed onto the watercolour paper is the last verse of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" Poem. I've mounted that onto black card and stapled some ribbon to the top of the tag. I added a bit of tea stained muslin behind the Raven image.


My "Raven Tag" also suits The Octopode Factory "Halloween" Challenge this week!
