CASE Study - #159
 A Halloween inspired belated birthday card :)

I used the glossy accents to create a texture for the Raven's feathers by randomly squiggling it across his body, letting areas of the paper show through.

Fascinating card with a quite unusual colour scheme and design and great interpretation of the Case Study sample.

Quite liked your ruffly feathered raven on this delightful card. Will have to explain your technique to the DH as he bought a spooky bird at the recent stamp show. TFS such a great Boo-day card. Hope you're enjoying some of this wonderful Carolina weather we are currently having. Hugs

Cool effect you got on the Raven! I just bought a stamp with one to make a card for my hubby who is performing Poe next month! Got to try the glossy accents on it! Thanks for the inspiration!! PS. I was thinking of you last night when I was listening to the band Carolina Chocolate Drops. Have you heard them? They are so awesome.
