My challenge this week is a simple one, but requires a bit of research on your part. Just as many of the Stampotique Originals' artists design stamps that might be described as a bit "quirky," so, too, was Edgar Allan Poe a bit quirky. He is a well-known author and poet, living from 1809-1849. His quotes range from the romantic to the melancholy, from the thoughtful to the murderous! The choice is yours. Combine a quote from Edgar Allan Poe with one or more stamped images to create something unique!
For my piece this week, I have chosen one of Poe's more thoughtful quotes: "Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute." This quote stands out from all the rest for me, and carries a life lesson for us all.
It's a postcard from me for this challenge. I was able to print both the quote and the author's name directly onto my postcard by attaching my postcard to an 8-1/2 x 11" sheet of printer paper (using washi tape) and running it through my computer.
I also used my stamp positioner to perfectly place my image over the author's name. It was easy to do after watching France Papillon's video tutorial on how to use it! You can find it here.
Stampotique Originals stamps I have used are:

Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are appreciated! It's not always easy to find time for creating in our busy lives, but I hope you will do that this week. Rules for submission of your art for this challenge can be found here. At the end of the month, two names will be randomly drawn from all submissions and each will receive a $30 gift certificate for anything in the Stampotique "store."
P.S. I have been invited to submit my work here to the "Quote the Raven" website! Check out the link here.
