"Edgar Allan Crow"

Now that school is back in session, my son and I have resumed our evenings of reading together. His first assigned book of the year is Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan Crow by James Howe. It is part of the very popular and oh so funny Bunnicula series and is full of wonderful puns and word play. Coincidentally, around the same time as we started reading this book, I saw this deliciously eerie Stampendous stamp at my local JoAnn’s. It reminded me so much of an early chapter in the book, I had to buy it and I am so glad I did. The detail on this stamp is amazing! I LOVE it! Creating this card was so easy because of this fabulous image, just stamp, emboss and ink and it’s done. By the way, if you are looking for an excellent black embossing powder, I highly recommend Midnight Black by Stampendous. It melts nicely and creates a terrific shine.

Thanks for visiting!
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

Stampendous Supplies:
Crowscape CRR131
Midnight Black Embossing Powder

Other Supplies:
Ranger Distress Ink in Stormy Sky, Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw
Versamark Watermark Ink
Cardstock (unknown)

Card Notes:
Create an A2 card base from gray card stock; cut an image panel slightly smaller on white card stock.

Stamp the image on the white panel using Versamark ink; sprinkle with Midnight Black embossing powder, melt with heat tool.

To create the moon, attach a small die cut circle to be used as a mask; make sure to use repositionable adhesive.

Using an ink blending tool, ink around the circle with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

When pleased with the results remove the circle mask and ink the rest of the image with Pumice Stone and Stormy Sky Distress Inks.

Distress edges of panel and adhere to the card base.
