I have colored w/ Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. I have also for the blood used red fingernail polish. Here the mad man is wondering why the wretched beast keeps following him? He thought he gouged out his eye and had killed said beast.

Here we can see what he did to the all black cat, yes he hung him after gouging out his eye.

I black embossed “Trees Three” from Stampin’ Up. Fussy cut the cat and noose. Add red fingernail polish.

This is what I typed up on my computer and printed on SU’s Velum:

This latter was a remarkably large and beautiful animal, entirely black, and sagacious to an astonishing degree. In speaking of his intelligence, my wife, made frequent allusion to the ancient popular notion, which regarded all black cats as witches in disguise.

I loathed, and dreaded, and would have rid myself of the monster had I dared – it was now, I say, the image of a hideous – of a ghastly thing – of the GALLOWS ! – oh, mournful and terrible engine of Horror and of Crime – of Agony and of Death ! Alas! Neither by day nor by night knew I the blessing of Rest any more!

I started, hourly, from dreams of unutterable fear, to find the hot breath of the thing upon my face, and its vast weight – an incarnate Night-Mare that I had no power to shake off – incumbent eternally upon my heart ! Beneath the pressure of torments such as these, the feeble remnant of the good within me succumbed.

Evil thoughts became my sole intimates – the darkest and most evil of thoughts. The moodiness of my usual temper increased to hatred of all things and of all mankind; while, from the sudden, frequent, and ungovernable outbursts of a fury to which I now blindly abandoned myself.

My next step was to look for the beast which had been the cause of so much wretchedness; for I had, at length, firmly resolved to put it to death. Had I been able to meet with it, at the moment, there could have been no doubt of its fate; but it appeared that the crafty animal had been alarmed at the violence of my previous anger, and forebore to present itself in my present mood.

The corpse, already greatly decayed and clotted with gore, stood erect. Upon its head, with red extended mouth and solitary eye of fire, sat the hideous beast whose craft had seduced me into murder, and whose informing voice had consigned me to the hangman.

I do hope my offering is acceptable to the Master!

I shall enter this page into the following challenges:
