Quoth The Raven, Nevermore Jan Quest #40

I am enjoying all the new challenges going on in the new year and have decided to made a flip book dedicated to some of the great Edgar Allan Poe quotes.  
The Quests at Quoth The Raven, Nevermore are perfect for this flip book.
Trying to get more into the digial side of experimenting and having a blast. 

The page will be entered into this Quest #40 - Snow Poe where the challenge is to use White and only one other color. 

Dabbled Deets

Background is from the Smeared Ink digital set called Venice.
Image was altered with Picasso and printed out on Whisper White card stock.

Took the quote from The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe and used AR JULIN font in Word.  Printed out over background.

Used Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink and stamps from a Smeared Ink rubber set called Inky Dreams.  Stamped randomly around edges of page.

All edges on page were distressed and sponged.

Basic Black card stock for backing. All edges also distressed.

Illuminate Pearlized Top Coat Smooch on random words through out quote.

Black journaling pen to add quotation marks and title.

Crop-a-dile to punch holes for 1" binder rings.

"The mask which concealed the visage was made so nearly to resemble the countenance of a stiffened corpse that the closest scrutiny must have had difficulty in detecting the cheat. And yet all this might have been endured, if not approved, by the mad revellers around. But the mummer had gone so far as to assume the type of the Red Death. His vesture was dabbled in blood --and his broad brow, with all the features of the face, was besprinkled with the scarlet horror."
