Authentique’s new paper collection::Thrilling!

Authentique just released a gorgeous, richly colored new collection of papers called “Thrilling”.  There are so many ways these papers could be used but I chose to make a few cards, one of which I would like to share today.
I love Edgar Allen Poe so I decided that the first card would his.  I cut the papers to fit a 4 ½” by 6 ½” blank card.  I used “Moonlit” and “Superstition”; love those skulls, for the background papers on the front panel.  The raven sitting on a mirror panel is cut from “Forewarn”.  The frame around Edgar’s image is an oval cut from the paper called “Frenzy”.  Edgar’s image is a digital download from cut into an oval shape.  His signature came from there, too.   After everything was attached I decided to use a self adhesive banner from the same collection, this sheet is called “Thrilling Details” and matches all the other papers perfectly, and I placed his signature on this banner with some pop dots.   IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® memento Luxe™Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Elderberry is the perfect color to distress the edges of the card with. A few word stamps echoing Edgar’s reoccurring sentiments of dreaming of forever love…….and the card is done.  But wait, how about a touch of sparkle with a few of Queen & Co.’s self adhesive rhinestones.  Now we’re done.
