POE boy

Hello and welcome snarky peeps!
I wanted to share a canvas panel that I just created for fun.

Thank you, Queen, for my paraphrasing. LOL!

Here are some process pics:

 Only after the crackle paste dried did I think to add some
text to the panel.

 I painted over the crackle paste and text with acrylic paints.

Close up of the crackle.

 Using alpha stamps, I created my sentiment.

 The main images were stamped onto tissue paper.

I added some more interest with stencils and paint.

Poe and the the bats were stamped onto tissue paper. Note: I actually tried to
iron the tissue paper as it was really wrinkly! This is the best I was able to
achieve. Has anyone else tried ironing tissue paper for the craft?
I stamped the bat first on one side, then using my MISTI, flipped the paper
and stamped on the other side. I wasn't sure if this would work, but 
thankfully my idea worked!
I did touch up the tissue paper by adding paint around the edges to blend better. 
Next I used a couple stencils and paint to add some interest to my panel.
I added a stamped image of dots here and there for a bit more grunge.
I stamped, cut out, and adhered the sentiment with matte medium.
After everything was dried, I sealed the panel with varnish, which
really makes the colors pop!

One more look:

Thanks for holding out until the end of my post! You did it! LOL!
And thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it!
