GC121: Horror Stories

You're gonna love this month at GINGERSNAP CREATIONS! We're doing HALLOWEEN up right by paying homage to the original Dark Lord - EDGAR ALLEN POE!!

This week's challenge is Horror Stories.

I created a chunky ATC with the man himself...and his favorite muse, the Raven!

What's a chunky's a wood block that's cut ATC sized. I only decorated the front but the back also calls out for some love.

My little raven was decorated with a party hat. I punched a 2-inch circle out. Cut it in half and then cut off about 1/3 of the half circle. It makes the perfect cone hat. The pom-pom was originally white and then rubbed on my Rusty Hinge pad.

I hope you'll join in the holiday merry making at Gingersnap Creations...why don't you start with you're own Horror Story!

(Almost all the supplies are from Red Lead PaperWorks.)
