Favourite Books at Left of Center

It's midway reminder time at Left of Center! Our current challenge is 'Favourite Books' and is sponsored by Delicious Doodles! I have used 'The Raven' to create this wall hanging and I have used items from the 'Tic-Tac-Poe' board over at Quoth The Raven, Nevermore, so I will be entering this in their current challenge.
I printed the image and inked up a large acrylic block with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, spritzed the ink with water and pressed this directly on top of the image to give a mottled coloured background - the edges are inked with black soot. The 6x6 chipboard was painted with Tim Holtz Bronze Distress Paint, stamped round the edges with black archival ink and a TH stamp and then a bouquet of flowers added. The whole thing was then sprayed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water to give a pearly sheen (not that you would notice in this light!)

There are pins in the bouquet (Metal?!), paint and ribbon to hang the project - top line of the board. Or, it is 3D and has flowers along with the ribbon is a diagonal!
As well as joining in at QTR, I will be entering this at the current Delicious Doodles Challenge - Black plus one other colour - brown(s)!
Thanks for looking!
