i chose a stamp with the head of edgar allan poe and placed it - of course - on a raven body, which is - like the lace background - from itkupilli_spiritus mortis.
red stitching is from cvisions
parchment overlay from shadowhouse.
text of the poem written with font gabriola (twice, to double print some parts of text).
made a brush of one of my heracleum-photos and stamped it in the background at lowered opacity.
