HDH102 - Queen of the Damned

Well it's another week and another challenge at Haunted Design House.  This week the challenge is to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that uses royalty, crowns, and/or thrones as the focus.  This doesn't have to focus on the movie with the same name (though it may)... just as long as it has that royally creepy touch, it qualifies!

Well I painted (there's a big surprise) a queen of the damned but it didn't look great on it's own so decided to add some of Susan's fabby papers to add something more to it.

Below is the painting stuck on a canvas with some red card with stickles and using the drippy goo punch and a CROWN charm.  I aslo added some sealing wax and stuck some crosses in to it.

This was my first painting I did but as you can see I got half way through and gave up as it looks kack.  So that is when I started the painting above.

Anyway I hope you find time to play along this week and whatever you do you should go check out the minions blogs they always come up with some weird and wonderful creations.
