HDH156 - Nosferatu Ad nauseam

This week for Haunted Design House you are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece

that has anything to do with Vampires. Lots of vampires!
Tribute to the unholy Vampire!!
Fangs, blood, sensuality.
We want to see your interpretation of the beautiful or the deadly Vampyre.
 
 
We have a fabby sponsor this week, none other than Rick St. Dennis MFA.
 
 
Rick has a wonderfully dark line of Creepmas images and many
masterfully drawn everyday macabre images.
He also has more mainstream images available as well.
 
Now not only have the Minions been given some digis to work with, but
BOTH Gruesome Twosomes will win 3 digis of their choice.
I think we will be inundated with entries this week!
There is also a challenge blog called Sparkle and Glitter with Rick St. Dennis,
which features a couple of our own Minions as DT members.
 
I chose to use Don't Go In There.  These images are so intricate they don't even need coloured in but it was fun colouring all the same.
 
I recycled a matchsticks chocolate box.  Coloured the image with promarkers and copics.  I made the flower on the right and coloured that with promarkers and drew bats on then stuck some ribbon and tulle coming out of it and made the flower in the centre from paper and added red stickles for the blood.  I also made the soap using parma voilet scent and red drops to indicate blood.  Each soap has the next part of the keyring to be added to the cross keychain which is in the pic.  I added a pic of nosferatu to the bottom of the box and used black glitter glue on the edges to make it darker. I also added a shrink plastic batt ot he right hand corner on acetate to make it look like he is flying above the guy.
 
 
I tried to make his hair look as if it had shocked white with a white gel pen but I don't think it worked out too well.  I still can't get over the detail on the door, very very cool image.


 
This flower was a couple of the cheap ones you get in a packet and I just coloured them up and added stickles to the edge etc as described above.
 

 
Shrink plastic bat with blood drip using stickles and red perfect pearls.


 
NOSFERATU (how cool is he!)

 
Shrink plastic keychains duhhh!

 
The holy water one is blurry but the others turned out not too bad.

 
Now to be in with a chance to win one of the fab prizes from our sponsor you have to enter so get your thinking caps on and get creating.
 
I would also like to enter this in to the Rick St Dennis MFA Sparkle and Glitter challenge No 2 Spooky or sweet. and the not real stamps challenge for Halloween.
