DT Throwdown - Old and Grey

It is Glo, Mark and myself playing along with the DT Throwdown this week for Haunted Design House.  The challenge is to interpret Old and Grey any way you want.

The Smeared Ink Forum is here and their new blog for the DT Throwdown is here.

Well I decided to paint the old woman from Drag Me To Hell!  Didn't turn out like I thought it would but what can you do.  I used a background crackle stamp, and a danger stamp that was part of a poison set I bought from Crafty Individuals and then stamped the word hell.  The hell and danger were stamped on tissue paper and water/glued on.  I stamped the crackle on the actual canvas in the background.

I took a picture of a yellow button (like the one from the movie) then made a digital frame with it here and played around to make it look like red at the bottom (kinda hells flames).

The background:

Base of face:

Anyway if you get a chance to have a look on the blog we do need your votes and there are some amazing entries each time.  (Obviously if you like ours best).  We also would love other design teams to join in.

Your painting is immense, Andrea! Fabulous background and frame, but your talent really shines in that totally menacing expression on her face. She'll be giving me nightmares. Well done! xxD
