Each day I am hoping to share 'something Poe' I have made in the past ...

and something I have made for this hop...

The following framed canvas I made 2 years ago - it still takes pride of place in my craft room...

So continuing with my wooden whisky case...

You remember I covered top and sides with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, distressed round the edges with black soot.

Today I want to show you the images on the top. I printed these on a grunge/steampunk paper from Imagine That Digistamps and matted them on black card. I then used a variety of markers to add colour.

In my ATC tag book last year this was one of the ATCs I made:
The ATC uses Ike's Poe Death Bed, ripped out, and coloured with a variety of fineliners.
I layered it onto blue card and black card. I then added ribbon, beads and a bow.

I am using this same image for one of the 3 elements on the top of the box.

On the right of this I have an ATC using a sentiment from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe

And to the left - of course - Leigh's Oddleigh Edgar Allan Poe

Here's the box so far...

I added a heart embellishment which just seemed to be destined for this box...

See the last bit tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!
