day 21 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Hallowe'en

The rules and details of all the fabulous sponsors that have generously donated prizes along the way can be found on Terra's Blog and of course on the Smeared and Smudged forum.
The blog list is still there in my right hand side bar - should you get lost.
Thank you all that have kept up with me so far. Your kind comments really make this epic task worth it all.
To those of you that are also blogging your projects as well as commenting - hats off to you. I don't know when you'd be sleeping, haha.

Yesterday I mentioned that I was slacking in making some fat book pages for my own amusement. For something other than a digital reminder of this fabulous blog hop organised again for the 4th year running by the Smeared and Smudged Forum.
 This 4"x4" fat book page is dedicated to the Master of Horror Tales. None other than E.A.Poe himself.
The raven is by Lost Coast Designs. The books/skull image is Cherry Pie. The "Nevermore" and "Quoth The Raven" text stamps are Smeared Ink. As is Mr Poe himself. Can you see him?
The ghostly apparition of the man himself.
Images stamped with memento ink with just one bit of masking. EAPoe image stamped with embossing ink and a slightly opaque powder. Black soot and barn door DI followed.
The pleated ribbon and feathers from stash.

Valerie is the very talented lady you will, no doubt have visited before me, and now is the turn of the beautiful blog of Sharon.

I am entering this page into the challenge over at
Quoth the Raven Challenges - Anything Poes

  1. Hi this is stunning and so are the rest of your work. I have come from another blog of a friend who you left comment on saying that a image she has used is from a company that steals images.the card had a witch on it and you left the comment yesterday.i am not naming the company as it would be wrong if this is the case to advertise the site port wrong to label them off this is not true.without telling us who they steal from we can not make up our minds our even purchase from the original seller which i would prefer to do. Sorry to post this here but couldn't find a email address.would love a list of original Sellers add love the images of this is the case.i did see this on feline but yet again no original Sellers address for me to check out and purchase. Thanks for the info
