Poe Themed Altered Altoids Tin

More eye candy for you Poe fans.  The middle of this piece an Altoids tin which makes a perfect niche for a frame.
The candle is made from a wooden skewer and the holder is a bead.  I’ve used a bead cap as an inkwell.  I used a drop and beads to create a chandelier.
Backside
I used Pitch Black Alcohol Ink to paint the edges of the white flowers and also paint some of the white flowers completely black.

OMG!! I truly love this piece. Absolutely gorgeous. I love the blue flowers you used as I love that color blue. There is just something about this piece that makes me feel so calm but yet has a mysterious feel of intrigue and suspense. Simply beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this piece. Do you have an Etsy Store, hint hint hint......LOL

Have a great week!
Take care,
Diane

Laura, I would never have guessed that this is an Altoids tin! Of course, you made so many wonderful elements to enhance it, that it's terrific. Poe fits so well with a classical gothic Halloween creation.

Thanks for sharing.
