Anything Poes, and then some

Finally, I am able to play along with my fiends
at Quoth the Raven, Nevermore challenges!!
With a style all their own, they deal only in the 
masterings of Mister Poe, and none other! 

I have been itching to use this wonderfully rendered image of Mister Poe
by Rick St. Dennis. It's available here.
I wanted him to be the main attraction, so I decided on an ATC.

After printing Poe out on kraft stock, I used Distress Inks and an aqua 
pen to give him some color. I used a "nevermore" stamp that I got from 
Viva Las Vegas via an Etsy retailer. Weird, I know.

It seemed a little plain, so I felt the need to add some blood splatter.
I embossed it with some cool, but unused for far too long,
 red tinsel embossing powder.

Lastly, I added the witty sentiment from Viva Las Vegas and some more
sparkly blood splats.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

  12. A wonderfully atmospheric ATC and adding the 'blood' splatter lifted the whole piece - seems like a very good use for that old supply too (I have some which I never use but I may well dig it out now!).
