A Lamp


This card is for the Haunted Design House Challenge HDH132. The challenge is to take a cute little image and make it over into something dark and scary looking. Ok, I love horror and scary stuff, but this was a super challenge for me for some reason. I finally ended up taking my new digi lamp image from Can You Digi It? (designed by Dana's Digital Cafe)and made it look scary. At least I hope I made it look scary with my dark colors, use of blood red Stickles, and my sponging with black and brown. I added a scary sentiment too. I haven't completed the inside yet, but I am leaning toward a Bible Verse about Christ being the light. I think that would make this sort of scary looking card into something really inspirational. Anyway, I tried hard to do this challenge since it was so challenging for me. It was also sooo fun. It reminds me of something that would be in Dark Shadows - I am so looking forward to that movie. What could be cooler than Johnny and Dark Shadows. I loved that show when I was a kid (yes, I was a kid when it was on and I didn't even have to watch the reruns - that is what is really scary), and Johnny...well, need I say more?? I am so hoping Lily at Octopode Factory comes up with a Dark Shadows set - wouldn't that be fun?

Hugz to all!

  4. Yes, I'm afraid of the dark.....really I am! I am such a scaredy cat over everything. I could be scared looking at this card. Good job with that lamp. Did you know the real Barnabas Collins/Jonathan Frid died recently? Bet you did. I bet you'll be one of the first to view the new Dark Shadows. :-)

  7. Very cool interpretation of our challenge this week at HDH. I really like the fact that the most ominous part is the sentiment.I'm also a sucker for sparkly blood red Stickles. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Haunted Design House.

  15. Nutzi: The inside of your card should say this:
    There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone

    hahaha That is what came to mind when I saw you card. Oooo I love the twilight zone and give me that falling elevator ride at MGM studios at Disney any day of the week. How fun and fabulous. Love that lamp shade image. So creative.
