I used a plastic skull....painted and distressed it and wrapped it in red fabric with skulls on to depict the film...'Masque of the red death' a poe story.... in the center(with the large faux skull) is a black cat with a bloodied knife.... depicting the story 'The black cat'.... there is also a Raven.... from the title of his most famous poem..
I also made little pencils.... added a watch.... a candle on a tiny altered plate.... a decorated domino.... with a raven and a protection symbol on.... oh all sorts of bits and bobs..... i stamped images from SMEARED INKS ...AS DEATH set.... and used them as backing paper in some of the compartments..... ...this was a labour of love for me.... i enjoyed every minute.... and hope to make another soon.... please join in with us at FOREVER NIGHT THIS WEEK.....
