Happy 100th Challenge to Haunted Design House!

Haunted Design House is celebrating their 100th challenge! And with that, not only comes some amazing blog candy-corn, but a fantastic challenge as well. The challenge is Varying Visages of Vincent. Price, of course! He would have been 100 this year. I still remember him on Sesame Street and Scooby Doo. Those were some of my favorite episodes of both of those shows. Se? Even then I was twisted! ;)

So I found an awesome image on THIS PAGE and knew I needed to use it. How could you not think of Vincent Price when you think of Thriller? And vice versa!

The image was so damn cool that I didn’t want to over do it with a lot of schtuff…but I did feel the need to add 3 layers of blood and goo to the top of the card. And tombstones. I needed tombstones. Both punches are from the Devil Herself, Martha Stewart.

I of course inked the edges of pretty much everything, and I scratchy-wrote Thriller. Oh, and there’s some Vintage Distress Stickles blobbed here and there too.

Here’s to Mr. Price! And here’s to another 100, Haunted Design House!!! Thanks for always being so amazing! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is great! I've always loved Vincent Price. I used to watch Faerie Tale Theater all the time, and I loved him as the magic mirror in the Snow White episode.:)

This is so awesome Alison! Love how you colored it and added the drippy goo and tombstones. VP was the master of horror, and a funny guy too.
