HDH056 - Monochromatic Monstrosities

This is my second post for today...
Here's my entry into the Macabre Monday challenge over at Haunted Design House.....They want to see the grotesque and the monstrous, and we can only do it in shades of only one color. here's are the shades you can choose from-----black/grey, green, orange, or purple. No I have to tell ya that this is my third project for this challenge....I really wanted to make something with color to it, but the other two projects came out pretty damn crappy....so they ended up in the thank you for coming pile....lol.......ENJOY!!!!!

this is actually a paper mache vase that I converted into a piece of Halloween decoration....I first painted it with white and black acrylic paint to make it gray...then using one of those trusty dusty stencils that belongs to DD, and stenciled in the brick background with black soot distress ink.....then lightly went over it with water to make it look aged....I used Vampire Christian from Simply Betty Stamps new release, cut him out added pop dots and kept it simple at the bottom only using the goo MS border punch......

this is what I did to the top to hide that it was a vase...cut a piece of cardstock to fit but I didn't glue it in...I left it so that flowers could be added if wanted to....I'm really on this roll with the webbing this year....don't know why though.....
and here's just a side view.....hope you've enjoyed this little project....come on over and play along...there's still a little bit of time left......Hugs from Charm City and as always, thanks forstopping by.......

Your vase is fabulous!! I LOVE it! I really like the ironwork at the top!
I actually bought some (black) webbing the other day, inspired by your use of it on your projects. Very clever.
Thanks for rising to the challenge at HDH.
