Quoth the Wobbling Raven, "Nevermore."
All this week Stampendous is playing along with the Action Wobbles design team. Action Wobbles are self-adhesive, plastic springs that add a fun, wobbling motion to any project.
In case this is the first you are hearing of this cool collaboration, you can check out what you missed here: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please keep checking back. We will be wobbling all week, ending with a huge Blog Hop on Saturday. Yes, there will be prizes.
Since I had recently 'wobbled' a cute Stampendous kiddos image, I decided I wanted to go in a completely different direction. So I 'wobbled' this incredible Halloween image called "Nevermore."
I started by stamping this fabulous image onto white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and spritzing it with Goosebumps Texture Spray. After it dried, I inked the stamped panel with Ranger Rusty Hinge and Antique Linen Distress Ink. I distressed and inked the edges with Memento Grape Jelly ink.
I stamped and spritzed the image a second time, cut out the raven and inked him with Ranger Pumice Stone Distress ink and Memento Grape Jelly ink. To adhere my 'wobbling' raven to the panel I trimmed down the Action Wobble so it fit behind the image, peeled off the adhesive from both ends and pressed. Simple.
Now for the background. On a panel of kraft cardstock, I inked and distressed the edges; spritzed with water and then sprinkled it with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and Purple Jewel Glitter. I heated the enamel and glitter from the underside...love this technique!
Before adhering it all to the card base, I created one more layer by misting and distressing a piece of cheesecloth.
Here's a little video demo of my raven wobbling:
