Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop Day 4: Raven Rising!

Howzit Stamping Friends!
We're busy celebrating Edgar Allan Poe's birthday in style over on my LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog with a 5 day Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop!  It's now our 4th day and so far the sharing has been beyond POEtastic!  The blog hop roll is below, just click on all the thumbnail links to hop all the blogs playing!  PLUS, it's not too late to join the fun, click on the very 1st entry to go to my Day 1 post that explains what the Hop is all about and how you can play.  There's 2 prizes up for grabs so if you love Poe then don't delay and come join the party, the Hop ends on Jan 23 at 5 to midnight pacific time!

I'm re-sharing some of past favourites on this blog for the hop and up today is my piece from 2016 I called "Raven Rising" ....I named it so coz I saw the Raven as a Phoenix rising from the ashes of 2016 so I coloured him in grays and yellows.  Just like in 2016 The Raven now carries forth the words of Poe into the new year where he will live on eternal as we continue to enjoy his tales of mystery and macabre.  This wicked cool image is Delicious Doodles' Skully Poe Digi Colouring Page, coloured with Copics and touches of metallic gold Promarker on the book spines.

Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!

Happy Stamping!

I design for The East Wind, Delicious Doodles and Joggles
