The Black Cat

As per the E A Poe story. The quest this week, over at Quoth The Raven Challenge Blog is to create something that represents this fantastic tale.
So, after much musing, rejecting first one idea then another, I came up with this. I hope the master thinks it worthy.

Loads of little boxes. All stuck together as a wall. For those that don't know the story, Go read it here.
All the boxes are made from thick orange card and well daubed with distress ink to age them. some old gold findings forming the drawer handles.
On the back however is a very different story.
Hidden, as was the corpse of the narrator's wife.
Picture taken from here. Attached to the back with mod podge then carefully cut to fit each drawer.
It was sitting straight but the pics make it look skewed now. Oh well.

I am entering this into the challenge at
Quoth The Raven - Oh, Poor Kitty
