Quest 13 - Some Words With A Mummy

New month means a new challenge at Quoth the Raven, Nevermore, and this, our 13th quest is Some Words With A Mummy.

You are to create an art piece using the Masters tale as your inspiration.  Here is a snippet of the tale........

Quote:   "Come to me, by all means, my dear good friend, as soon as you receive this. Come and help us to rejoice. At last, by long persevering diplomacy, I have gained the assent of the Directors of the City Museum, to my examination of the Mummy --- you know the one I mean. I have permission to unswathe it and open it, if desirable. A few friends only will be present -- you, of course. The Mummy is now at my house, and we shall begin to unroll it at eleven tonight".

You can read the whole piece HERE

and here is what I was inspired to do

The centre image is by Kevin Atkinson and is available to download from DevianArt.  The image at the head of the tassel is by Sameul Guin also available to download from DeviantArt.  The little mummy in the bottom right corner is from the Smell My Feet set of digi stamps by Smeared Ink,

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s)

That's all from me, now off you go and join in the challenge :)
