A Poe-triotic blog post

July already, and of course, for our friends in the USA, Independence Day has come and gone.  If you celebrated the 4th of July, I hope you had a great time!

The Minions of the Master over at Quoth the Raven have decreed that this month we shall submit Poe-triotic items for the delectation of the faithful, and here is my humble offering -
The image is made up of digital stamps of Poe and the raven from Smeared Ink (no longer available as a digi, but there are many other similar images out there) combined with a picture of Uncle Sam and manipulated in my graphic software, with a background and lettering added.

It's printed onto Safmat and then applied to a faux weathered wood background (one of Andy Skinner's Timeworn Techniques) with the headers cut from the same material with the "Pediments" Alterations die. 

And there it is.  I hope you like it - and that the Master approves!

See you next time!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren
