so christmas is making me crazy.
i've been very crafty but, alas, my friends are crafty too, so i can't post anything here till the new year for fear of being spotted prematurely by the recipients. so here is a raven scratchboard that i made for my bf, NOT as a christmas gift.
the original board is 16x20" but in scanning some of the black got cut off around the image. i like putting the white border around my scratchboard images - its a bit art nouveau-ish. for this board though, the success of the effect is dependant on how far you're standing from the board: if you're close, i think it looks really neat but from a distance, it kind of dominates the image. it could also be all the black space, i dunno. anyway, this is the only board i've made that actual gets to stay in my home! ^_^ i think this one also took me the longest - the feathers were a pain.

hope you enjoy!

WOW. im always jealous of people who can do scratch boards. i've never tried, but they just seem like they would be hard and would take a lot of patience.
anyway, great job!

Thanks for bumping this, I would have never seen it. Now we all know why so may craftsters have crushes on Acidtrix.
