Nevermore

One of the new stamps from Stampendous is this fabulous Raven with the background script from Poe. The DT from Stampendous are hopping this week using the super fun Action Wobbles.  You can buy these super fun wobblers at The Scrapbooking Queen.

I was inspired to make a steampunk wobbling Halloween card..

I started with misting an embossed piece of white cardstock using gray, green, purple and orange mists.  I distressed the edges.  I then repeated the process on a larger piece of cardstock to create my background.  I stamped the raven and quote on white cardstock.  I treated that background to a touch of orange and green glimmer mist.  I sponged the edges with a touch of black dye ink.

I stamped the raven a second time and cut him out using my trusty detail scissors.  He also received a little orange bath of mist.

Than the fun began with adding wobblers under the bird and the clock faces.  I added additional gears to the clocks along with the hands.  I finished it off with a few clips embossed in aged gold embossing enamel.

When you hold it upright the bird really wobbles with the chain on his hat making it really move.

Now you don't want to miss out on all the fun, hop along to see all the inspiration:
