poe in black and grey, collage style background

hey there bloggers,
well here is the last of my Poe creations for gingersnaps and collage background for the stampman and backgrounds for the artistic stamper, links are below at bottom of post.
I have really enjoyed this although It was something I admit I thought I might struggle with..this card has been made a while and waiting to be blogged..so here he is:
I do make myself laugh that my pieces are here he is..or here she is...weird eh??Anyway, enough onwards.
I wanted to include Poe and decided to use him as part of the background...This time, you will be shocked to learn the are 3 pieces to background, well you will if you stop by here or have before as I have this thing for two parts to my backgrounds, I digress..
The right hand side of this collage style card was made using DI in pumice stone and then I stamped cobwebs, blots and pen nibs in black soot.The middle section is pictures of Poe, inked over with DI pumice stone and the left hand side was made using tissue tape. The collage effect was added to with pieces of text from the book my sister gave me..which I highlighted..beating of and heart..using The Tell-Tale heart , as inspiration.
To continue to build up the background, I added staples...(a thing of mine!!!),a stampbord tile, edged with metal tape and stamped with a heart and pen nib added word heart, ink blots and some cobweb stuff.

Sorry , hope this all makes sense?!! Overall I love the collage style background and love just playing, this really is a product of playing and seeing where I ended.This time I liked the journey and the destination!!sometimes the destination is the bin!!!
