Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda are sponsoring this hop in conjunction with Poe's birthday and the release of some wonderful new stamp images...some of which are used in my project below. (Check out the pages of Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda to see the rest of the new stamp images!)
Here's my offering--a reversed-out effect made by embossing the images with platinum powder on dark paper, with special "text effect" on Poe's face:
The stamps I used were Edgar Allen Poe from Carmen's Veranda, Blackletter text from ATC Text Set 1 at Lost Coast Designs, the License Plate Alphabet Set from LCD, and the Left Zentangle Raven from LCD.
How I got the text effect on Poe: I inked up the image as usual, then pressed the blackletter text stamp onto Edgar's inky surface...then simply pressed the text stamp (which had picked up only the shape of his face) onto the paper. In other words, the text stamp had ink transferred to it only where it had come into contact with the "positive" image of the face. Cool, huh?
