Scary Stories

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting!  The latest challenge over at Left of Center is Scary Stories, and we are sponsored by the magnificent Ike.  I've chosen to use Telltale Heart, which is a story by Edgar Allen Poe (and it's a very scary story so if you've of a nervous disposition you might want to look away now)

 I'm still on my faux book kick.  This time I recycled a cover I'd made for another project - I brayered dimensional paint (Tulip paint) in black and silver over card to make the leather-look for the binding

I printed out the digi five times and after I'd coloured all the copies (with Spectrum Noir pens) I did a bit of decoupage, using the folds of the "pages" to separate the layers.


I'm entering this in the 
Quoth the Raven  challenge "Anything Poes", and
Haunted Design House challenge - "Fresh Blood".

Hello Teamie.
What a brilliant make. The cover really does look like leather with those brilliant metal elements. Love the marbeling inside the cover as it gives that shot of colours. You have used the image wonderfully!
