POE-ETRY

This is Week 4 of the "Snow Poe" art challenge at the Quoth the Raven, Nevermore website.  I hope you can find some time this month to create something (white plus one color) with Poe in mind.  Inspiring examples created by the Design Team can be found here

Edgar Allan Poe is best known, I think, for his short stories, but he was also a poet, with more than 50 poems to his credit.  Although the quote I have used in my project today does not appear in any of Poe's works, he is credited with having said it.

To support my quote, I have used a stamp by Inkadinkado, as well as a border stamp called Streamers from Stampotique Originals.  My 6" x 6" card was made with paper scraps, and I used an orange marker to color the flowers and ribbon, as well as to highlight the streamers.




Thanks so much for visiting today and for taking a moment to leave a comment.  I appreciate both!  I hope you will also sign up as a "follower" today (options are in the upper right-hand sidebar).
