This time over at QUOTH THE RAVEN, our Challenge is themed with POE's tale of Premature Burial. How awful would that be - to wake up and find yourself in your own grave. While the modern usage of the verb "wake" is "become or stay alert" meaning, a "wake" for the dead harks back to the antiquated "watch" or "guard" sense. This is contrary to the urban legend that people at a wake are waiting in case the deceased should "wake up."
Anyways, sometimes people had a little bell rigged up to their toe or hand, so that if they should wake up inside the coffin, they could ring it for assistance.
Here is my offering for this challenge:
The two digital images are from the Build A Graveyard Set by Smeared Ink. I coloured my hand digi in PSE9. The cross and gravestone images were 'paper pieced' onto a photos of marble and alabaster.

I hope you will come over to Quoth The Raven to see what my fellow Supplicants to the Master have created for you. :-)
