We loved with a love that was more than love

November 1st 2011
Gingersnap Creations have had some great challenges for the month of October with Edgar Allan Poe a feature! And for this Colour Challenge of Black & Greys I've made an altered caoster.


I've used images from a collage sheet from The Octopode Factory - the same sheet as my Raven Tag but this time I printed the sheet in grayscale so they suited the colour theme.

I've used a coaster covered with black & white paint dragged together to make black & grey colours and I've made a little torn paper background for the images as well. I've added some black tulle, some skeleton leaves, a flower which I rubbed a grey ink pad over with a little heart brad and I added the quote by Edgar Allan Poe:

We loved with a love that was more than love.

I've made the coaster into a little hanging by adding some fancy ribbon to the top. I love how this turned out - I think the black & grey colours are very effective.
