Run away!

This week's challenge over at Wicked Wednesday is to make a storybook character ATC.  What I really set out to do initially was to ink up the Stampendous Halloween raven background stamp that I picked up this weekend.  Then I was feeling guilty about not having entered anything at WW for several (SEVERAL) weeks.  Then I was thinking about what to do with my raven.  Then I was thinking about storybook characters. (See, I did it again.  I dragged you down into my stream of consciousness path again.)  Then I thought of my FABU Octopode Tweedledee/Tweedledum and Cheshire Cat images since they're the only storybook characters I have.  Raven.  Tweedledee/dum.  Raven... WAIT!  Aren't Dee and Dum terrified of a raven or an eagle or something.  Quick!  Run to Boy's room and yank "Alice in Wonderland" off the shelf!  Miraculously open to the Dee/Dum chapter!  Yes!!  They're terrified when a... crow flies by.  Ummm.... CLOSE ENOUGH!  Dee!  Dum!!  RAVEN!!!  YES!!!!

And this is the end result.
