Tic Tac Poe

Hello again!  I decided to play along with a challenge blog that I very much admire…Quoth the Raven.  Their current challenge is Tic, Tac, Poe, so there’s a lot of room to play.

I used Stitching, Lace, and Feathers in a row(but I also used pleats, fabric, and flowers).

I made a monstrosity of a hat.  I’m going to a stamping convention soon and on the preview night they’re having a crazy hat contest, so I decided that my crazy hat would be a tribute to Mr. Poe.

Coincidentally, the book under the hat is Poe & Fanny by John May.(Yes, I’m a wee bit obsessed)

The Poe rubber stamp is from Artful Illusions.  I also used a feather, a feather charm, and a pen nib embellishment.

Here’s a peek at how I made this.
