HDH049 - Appalling Arachnids at Haunted House Design

This week at the Haunted House Design the challenge is appalling arachnids.  I chose to use the black widow spider as my entry as I love red.  Anyway I drew a pic (surprise surprise) of a face with black widows for hair and in her eyes with spider webs coming out (my hubby said he didn't get that), coloured her with promarkers and copics.  put some feathery ribbon behind her head just for a splash of red.  I wrote fly pie and dinner time on a piece of rymans card and used some distress ink to colour it, then drew some webs.  The card at the back is from a cardstack (not sure which one as I have quite a few with sheets pulled out from various).   I put a little cutlery set (she's not a savage you know hehe)  the flys are some brown and red fibres (yum).  Anyway this is my entry and I did another one below this which I originally did and thought na (I tried to use lots of fibres to make it look like a messy web feel but just looked down right ridiculous.  Oh yeah forgot the spiderweb on the black card (coordinations)  was embossed with the cuttlebug and then sanded and I added some of the white stickles and one of the white souffle pens. 

There is some great work from the design team, defo check it out.

although both are great, I agree the edited version is better. IMHO only. I love the pop of red, gives the piece extra life. I get the eyes! Yumm! Oz
