"Poe Memoratus in Aeternum" Artist Trading Block by LCDesigner Leigh

Leigh here...It's my turn again to share a project and today I'm paying homage to Edgar Allan Poe who died on this day in 1849.  I designed an artist trading block in "memoratus in aeternum" to Poe which is Latin for "remembered unto the eternal".  I used 3 of our new Lost Coast Designs stamps on this one:  Gears, Large Perspective Grid and the ATC Doodle Circles from the ATC Doodles Circles set, as well as Bird Bones, Skull Flourish, Raven with Tree Branches and our fangtastic Edgar Allan Poe portrait stamp from our Carmen's Veranda line.  The Nevermore text is also a Carmen's Veranda stamp but isn't up on the site so if you're interested in that one inquire about it when you place your next an order.
Here's a closer look at each side of my Poe ATB!
#1:  EA Poe, ATC Doodles Circles and partials of the Skull Flourish,  #2"  Raven with Tree Branches, Gears and partials of the Skull Flourish
#3:  Large Perspective Grid, Bird Bones, Nevermore text and partials of the Skull Flourish and #4:  Skull Flourish, Gears and Nevermore text
#5:  Raven with Tree Branches, ATC Doodles Circles and partials of the Skull Flourish and #6:  EA Poe, Large Perspective Grid and partials of the Skull Flourish.
