Music Mayhem HDH 142 - He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)

This week over at Haunted Design House Macabre Monday the challenge is to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that uses a song or song title as your muse.  I did some research on the internet and found a song that totally inspired my creation.  I can't believe I had never heard this song, Alice Cooper's "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)."  I have always been a HUGE fan of The Friday the 13th films and Jason Voorhees is one of my all-time favorite slasher film killers!  That is why I was so surprised I had never heard this song, plus who doesn't love Alice Cooper!!!  If you are interested in listening to and watching the video you can check it out HERE on YouTube!

I used these items to create this card:
  • the mask image is from the internet
  • the machete is from the internet too but I didn't like the way it looked printed so I hand cut out and painted my own and applied a little Glossy Accents to the paint and handles
  • the background paper (inside and out) are from DCWV The Immortal Love stack
  • Martha Stewart edge punch
  • Design Studio
  • Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge - Friday the 13th
  • Pooh Font Cricut cartridge - HE'S BACK!
  • (inside card) Studio G clear stamp - TREAD LIGHTLY - which I cut out and made to look like a camp sign
  • (inside card) white gel pen - for the letters of the sign
Here is the inside of the card:

Here is a close up of "the mask..." so that you can see some of the blood on the machetes:

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
