666 The Number of the Beast!

My hubby is a huge Iron Maiden fan and when I saw the name of the latest challenge at Haunted Design House I knew I had to play along. But it went further down my 'to do' list as the week went on and with only a few hours to spare, here's my card for the challenge!
I have used the Beastly Paper Pack from Delicious Doodles and the Rick St Dennis image 'Amulet'. The main image is coloured using Promarkers with extra detailed added using my WH Smith blendable pencils. The image is fussy cut and mounted on black pearlescent paper. The sentiments are printed from Word and inked with Fired Brick and Black Soot.

I printed out the rams head background paper and sections from the two other papers in the pack. On the background I used my Promarkers and blew on the thick end of the pen to create a splattered effect in various colours. I've done the same on the 666 spirals. The rams head in the corner, sentiments and '666'paper behind the main sentiment have been tinted/edged with Fired Brick and Black Soot DI too. I've added some black web ribbon to finish.

The more I look at the card photo here - I wish I'd cut down the '666' sentiment a bit smaller but I didn't want to lose the font! And it's too dark here now to take another photo!

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Haunted Design House - 666 The Number of the Beasts
613 Avenue Create - #78 Anything Goes
Ditzie Digi Designs - Anything Goes
Lacy Sunshine - #36 Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge - #202 Colour me Happy (I love my Promarkers!!)
