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

and something I have made for this hop...

So first, four old favourites:

1. Using Smeared ink Digis:

2. Using Ike's Poe Skull Bust and a triple stamped moon (Kitchen Sink)

3. Using Ike's Lenore and Poe Paper Background 
plus an unknown rubber stamp from my stash
4. From a Creepmas album, using Smeared Ink rubber stamp
 and a vintage Santa (again unsure of the origin)

So now onto the last part of my wooden whisky box - the inside...

Again I covered top and bottom with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, and then added an assortment of elements again using images printed on a grunge/steampunk paper from Imagine That Digistamps and matted on black card.

Again I have used Ike's Poe's Death bed

Poe is from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe

Someone mentioned we seem to be having a lot of ravens this year - so here's a cat - my favourite cat digi from Smeared Ink.

Next we have Leigh's Oddleigh Raven Nevermore

The next ATC is stamped with archival ink using a Smeared Ink rubber stamp
 (sadly a company who no longer trade)

And last but not least I have Ike's Raven Poe

I attached these to the inside of my box...

Quite pleased with my box!!

Happy Crafting!
