Poe shadow box

I made a shadow box, painted an old box using crackle medium (first layer red, than crackle medium, then black and the top layer of the crackle medium, then wait till the cracks appear)

the Raven digi is coloured with distress ink and cut out and glued on top of the box.

The inside of the box is covered with glitter foam and patterned paper and red paper with raven and barbed wire rubber stamps on it.

The Digi's used are The Raven and Edgar Allen Poe all by Rick St Dennis MFA, both coloured with distress, Poe in yellow and red and the raven in blue.

I added some goodies and flowers and that's it

I will enter this in the Smudgy Antics challenge "tic tac toe 3 in a row" I used flowers,  metal (the heart and the pen) ribbon (there are ribbon roses in there), but I aslo used paint and cardboard (behind the tombstones and Poe is a layer of cardboard)
I will also enter the following challenges
