"Boo!" said Poe to the Raven - The Count Down to Halloween has begun!

Howzit Friends!
YAY! It's October and the countdown to Halloween has begun!
I'm hosting my 5th annual DominoART Scarefest again this year and playing as a Wicked Blogger in the massive 7th annual Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween too!  See my next post.

This year I also organized that we, the Lost Coast Designs DT, would also participate as a Wicked Blogger on our Lost Coast Portal to Creativity - event and challenge blog!
Pop on over and stay to play coz there's tons of prizes up for grabs!

Here's my Day 1 project
"Boo!" said Poe to the Raven
I found the wooden Boo set at Target and could not resist altering them!
I started out by painting them with black acrylic paint and while they dried I typed up the poem "The Raven" by Poe in Photoshop CS6, sized to fit the wooden shapes then printed out 3 copies.  I laid each shape onto a copy and traced the shape, cut it out and ran each piece through my Xyron to add permanent adhesive.  I then had a blast stamping up each piece.  The images are all stamped with onyx black Verafine ink with some overlapping and some masking going on.  I adhered each panel to the wooden pieces and completed them with Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks applied with a Tim Holtz ink applicator.

Happy Stamping!
