Little Black Kitten
The Edgar Allan Poe image and the word "nevermore" are digital stamps from the Quoth the Raven set by Smeared Ink. The crown is a page from a damaged book that was cut with the Cricut machine, painted red and stamped with a chain link pattern stamp from Great Impressions. The wings are from a Tim Holtz clear stamp collection set. Once I assembled my Poe bust, I put it through the laminater to give it stability.
The images around the base of the block are from collage sheets. They have been decoupaged onto the block base. I added the Edgar Allan Poe quote "to elevate the soul, poetry is necessary" . The piece is embellished with black and red rhinestones, lace flowers that I painted black, striped ribbon yarn and black eyelash yarn.
