I recently sent off a set of cards for an Edward Gorey swap. The stamp is hand-carved from artwork by Gorey for a book by Wilkie Collins. I thought the artwork was wonderfully gothic and moody, as so much of Gorey’s work is, and I tried to evoke that moodiness with my treatment. I used double-embossing on this card, but it’s a very subtle example of the technique. If you’d like to see more, I made a video about it last year.

Always love your cards Cat! Thanks for sharing your techniques. Makes me want to get my carving tools out and get my fingers inky!
Love that card! I’m not familiar with Edward Gorey but that art reminds me of the opening sequence to PBS show Mystery. Do you know if he did that?
He did indeed! Derek Lamb did the animations using Gorey’s work.
Totally awesome Cat!!!! I’ve never thought to do a double embossing before! I will have to try this!
