The Pit and the Pendulum

Today I made another fat page for my Poe book. 
I watched Vincent Price in The Pit and The Pendulum. 
Then designed my plan from the Movie! 
This is the Challenge this fortnight over at  

Here is my entry!!
I think everyone else probably went with a pendulum, and I thought about making a swinging one to have in front of this, before I had the whole design in my mind, but I decided against it. I like being different. :)
So I went with the main torture room, and the sitting iron maiden, that dear Elizabeth gets locked in 
and left forever, and her previous "Wall of Internment" 
and from the Pit/Pendulum room the creepy reapers on the wall.

it is a combination of painting, paper, digi stamp, rubber stamps and hand drawing.
Paper -I believe it is older BASIC GRAY, Brick wall stamp by LAYERS OF COLOR, Flying skull stamp by BOMBSHELL STAMPS, The Criss-cross stamp is by SMEARED INK 
(from the Quoth the Raven set). Scared Eyes is a digi stamp by SMEARED INK.
Black and gray paint for the reapers, fine line black sharpie also, 
and red stickles by RANGER for the eyes. The sharpie used to make the name plate and her name, 
with copper stickles. Copper paint pen for a cut in view of Elizabeth's fear inside the iron maiden.
SHARPIE white poster paint pen for skull, and silver paint pen for the wings.
STAMPIN' UP markers for the flesh and eyes of Elizabeth.

Hope you like my take on The Pit and the Pendulum!
