Pieces of eight!


It's Monday, and that means it's time for another wonderful new Macabre Monday challenge over at the Haunted Design House blog!
Ok, my little pretties... your challenge this week:

Octopodally Ominous
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween project / card using EXACTLY 8 items. Every little thing counts... card base, image panel, every gem, ribbon, sentiment, etc!! This may be harder than you think ;) No cheating on this one!

And we're sponsored this week by the fantabulous Octopode Factory, I just love these images! I used Cleo the Clown from the Whimsical Circus set, and added a quote by Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King's It. I made this one a 4x4, thinking that the smaller size might make it easier to use only 8 items, but, lol, it was still hard. My items are the black card base, the red paper, the text layer, the image, the frame, two spiders and a band of stabby black icicles.
I followed the sketch over at Simon Says Stamp, the theme at Three Muses is "world of movies" and that's it for challenges for this one! Shocking for me, I know, I was originally intending to make this red and white, which would have covered a couple of other challenges, and fitted with the look of the film, but as I worked the white all turned to black. Thanks for looking, and start counting those supplies, because there must be exactly eight on your project this week :)

FABULOUS! I KNEW I recognized that quote! Been awhile since I've read that one. Gotta dig it out. Red and black was definitely the way to go here! xxD
