HDH Macabre Monday Challenge 04

Barb Foster is a fellow Angel. We've never met, but I've seen her posts on Paper Wings, the forum for Angels, and I've admired her work in the TAC catalogs because she is frequently featured there. Recently I discovered that Barb, like me, is a big Halloween fan. She is such a big fan that she has a whole blog , Haunted Design House, dedicated just to her obsession. I love it that sort of dedication!
It's been a long time since I played along with any challanges but how could I resist a Macabre Monday challenge? We are challenged to use a ghastly poem within the design and really who is more ghastly than Edgar Allen Poe?? My poem is "The Raven" I've had these Martha Stewart stickers sitting around in my Halloween stash for over a year now with a vague idea of what I wanted to do with them, so this card came together really quickly. I printed the poem on a piece of TAC's (retired) Kamalat DP and inked up the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. Then I used the MS drippy goo punch on a scrap piece of glittery black paper from my stash and mounted it on a piece of glossy card that I doctored up with Tim Holtz alcohol inks and entered it in Barb's challenge.

This is wonderful, Kay! Love the glittery black goo and the raven is beyond perfect for that Poe excerpt! Thanks so much for playing along with Macabre Monday!

That is the second time I've seen that punch today, I just might have to venture over to the big old box store and pick me up one ;)
What a great card for Halloween!!

Barb is super talented and so are you! Love this Kay - I didn't know you were such a Halloween gal too! I found a huge skull vinyl sheet last year for the front window -- it was so cool. We were the bestest house on the street, if I may say so myself!
