Visiting the Dark Side.


The Chestnut   challenge for this month at Gingersnap Creations   GC 121  ' Horror Stories'.
Its 'Go with Poe' month,   The idea for this piece came from a short story, The Black Cat,  by   Edgar Allan Poe .
The text is an extract from the first page of his book, downloaded from the net.
I used Tim Holtz masks on the text, with black soot and tea dye distress inks to darken it down. The die cut, house, trees and fence are also T.H. There  is a black car sitting on the fence, I added a few sparkles to make it stand out a little.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
