When someone says "Skeleton Key", what do you think of? What colors come to mind? Black and white, sepia, darkness, spooky. This is what I think of.
So I had to make an ATC using a book page and a skeleton key. I also read the profile of the person to whom I was sending this and she's a huge Edgar Allan Poe fan. But it's spring! It's sunny (well, it's always sunny here so that doesn't mean much) It's just not skeleton key weather.
Only after the ATC was complete did I read the book page that I used. (I have discovered that when I do anything that requires a book page, I just have to put it down without looking otherwise I'll end up reading the story) It was torn from a Reader's Digest Condensed Book and I don't know what this story is about but on the page it's talking about blood and bubbles and smearing so I guess it is true: Where there are skeleton keys there is darkness whether you planned it or not.
