REDlead Halloween Pocket Tag Art Swap

I'm participating in the RedLead Paperworks Halloween Pocket Tag Art Swap over at REDlead.  Chris and Sharon gave us a pocket tag filled with five tags of various sizes and colors.  I had lots of Raven-themed stamps and such from RedLead, so my theme was a natural..... The tags.....
This one uses this Poe stamp and this skeleton stamp, along with some vintage German text sprayed with Glimmer mists, some messy painting and glitter, and some stenciling with modeling paste.  A black chipboard raven haunts Poes mind.

The object of Poe's grief - Lenore - comes from this collage sheet.  In the background is a Poe Hollowed Hymns stamp and a wooden charm, along with an acetate clock.

The witch who sent the Raven?  Is she a spurned lover?  Or just a master of the otherworld.....  She comes from the same collage sheet as Lenore.  Her hat is from a retired RedLead stamp.  The raven is stenciled, the stars are from UmWow Studio.  In the background are stenciled words and a few hand written stanzas from The Raven.

Oh that pesky Raven!  This is one of my favorite RedLead stamps.... stamped in Archival Black ink on a glimmer-misted background, it needed little else to make it stand out... just a wooden charm... tapping....

One last tiny tag.... using a skull from the same collage sheet, a little sentiment from the Hallowed Hymns stamp, and a spooky owl background from a retired RedLead stamp.  (Spooky how the background of my photo of this tag disappeared.... ????)

Here's the lot...

This was such a fun swap!  Thanks REDlead!
