A Tribute to Poe, my DT Debut offering

Hiya Folks! This is my first official project on the Smeared & Smudged Forum Design Team, and yes, another Edgar Allan Poe project. I LOVE this stamp sheet "Quoth the Raven" from Smeared Ink!!! I hope you like it.

I've had a few pre-drilled dominos for several years now & thought it would be nice to have Mr. Poe with me when stepping out. First I used Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Rust, Espresso, TerraCotta & Jacquard's Pinata in Red to create the blood colored background. After they dried, I stamped images from the Quoth The Raven sheet in black Staz-on Ink. I then assembled the bracelet using stretchy cord & beads in between. All in all it was a fairly simple process, but I did learn if the stamp is too wet, it will take away some of the background color when removing it from the domino. Also, if you stamp and immediately wipe the domino, you will remove the Staz-on and alcohol ink underneath the image, leaving the original domino color.

I'll put up a photo using my camera wearing it in the morning after my batteries have re-charged. Thanks for looking!
