the mask of the red death/ hot as hell in here

Because I haven't had the time to play at Quoth the Raven and Haunted Design House for a while, I did want to play this time to save time I cheated a bit and combined the challenges so her is my project for "The Mask of the Red Death" and for HDH 133 "Hot as Hell in here"

Tadaa here it is a shadow box

This used to be a cigar box but for Quoth the Raven I turned it into the the red and black room with the ebony clock. Inside the box there is a masked man who takes of his mask and it turn out to be Death himself. There is also a pic of mr. Poe, half human half skull. And then ofcourse all the guests who died in the red/black room they are the dancing skeletons, they dance around the fire. Inside the clock the is a the Plague as Death digi.

For HDH 133: this could be what hell looks like, dancing skeletons around a fire (which is a battery operated candle) in a dark place with scary images all around, and I think it turned out to be a Hot project LOL.

All the digi's are Smeared Ink , the dancing skellies are from Stampinback and the skull border is "Lost Coat Designs". the clock is Tim Holtz Die

I will enter the following challenges: - alter it

  5. Hi MO,
    I really love your cigar box project!! You have done a Hell of a great job!! (Ha ha pun intended) I love the half human half skull Poe, so cool! I watched this movie. It was pretty cool it had Vincent Price in it. Killer how you used the dancing skeletons to represent the people at the Masquerade Ball all dieing (which they do all die)Gotta love the drippy goo MS punch! Mo, your project has turned out fantastic! Did you do anything to the front/outside of the cigar box? Stay real my friend!

  6. Monique, this is a fabulous way to combine the two challenges. I can imagine hell being similar to the way you have depicted it. Love the idea of the candle. Thank you for sharing this with us at Haunted Design House this week
