Yesterday I shared a page from my current scrapbook...

As often happens, when I looked at it again today, I decided it need a little more:

I added the old real rubber Smeared Ink stamp of Poe.

Lost coast have a famous faces challenge going at the moment - I will link my page to this too Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Walk of Fame

Next I will share another Poe page from this scrapbook - I put this together in October last year: I used that same rubber stamp again on the tag!!

The main image is Leigh's Winter Raven

But now for something new - I have a pair of ATCs...

The first one shows a black cat.  

Edgar Allan Poe is credited with the quote

“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”

and of course wrote the short story 'The Black Cat'

The ATC is black card matted with a background made by pouring acrylic paint.
The part moon is a triple stamped image using Kitchen Sink stamps.
The cat is a Tattered Lace die.

The second is a spooky owl - Tim Holtz geometric die - on a background of smooshed inks.

I will add these ATCs to the linky!

Happy Crafting!
