Never, Nevermore

Hiya, hope you're having plans for a great weekend. I'll pay the shopping mall a visit; youngest son is a fast growing teenager and he needs some new clothes for the winter. He'll do the shopping and I'll have a coffee, not so bad at all!

I'm often checking Gingersnap Creations for inspiration and I've been admiring their Edgar Allan Poe themed work this month. He's perfect reading and inspiration for October; the words on the card comes from "The Raven".

I used the alco inks resist technique on acetate. Archival ink pulls off the alco ink, but you have to be quick with the tissue paper, the archival ink needs to be removed before it dries.
The acetate was tricky to take a pic of, it has a zig zag edge, part of the image is under it and the raven and the frame is above it. Can't remember where the image is from, but whoever you are, thank you very much for sharing it!

I'm entering:

I used:
Butterscotch and Cranberry alco inks
TH script stamp
Distress Inks
Golden and rust Perfect Pearls
Distress embossing powder
Stampscape tree stamp
Excahngeable leaf stamp
Sun shaped punch for flowers
Nestabilities circle die
Hole punch

Thanks for visiting, come back soon again!

Warm hugs
