The ravening beasties . . .


I made this piece today for the following challenges:
Simply Betty 4th Day of Halloween - incorporate ravens and this quote from Vincent:
His voice was soft and very slow As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted? Nevermore!"

Something Completely Different: purple and green
What If Wednesday - sketch 0610
4x4 Friday - Poe

Recipe: The image is Day of the Dead Timothy by Simply Betty (remember to snap up your digis while they're available, before they're turned into rubber-only format), the papers are by Crafty Chaos Designs, Gothic Bruise and Bittersweet sets, the small ravens are by DezinaWorld and the bigger raven in the corner started as public domain line art, altered by yours truly. Everything else was done by me in PSP.
