Homage to Hitchcock

Haunted Design House's challenge this week is to celebrate Hitchcock's life and works. So many films made by and inspired by him. Many stars were born playing the roles he created and appeared in. I remember that was one of his trademarks - a walk on part in all his films.
As always, the challenges over at HDH are not just about making a project but choosing what to make given a very broad theme. I went with an ATC and chose "Dial M for Murder" as my film.

I thought I had a stamp that could pass as a tennis racket but no so that bit got left out.
I did have one with a few keys on it. This was heat embossed in silver on the green (for jealousy) base together with some scissors (The murder weapon). The drippy bit (blood) is a stamp that my DD bought for me when in the US. This is heat embossed both on the top and the black mat in red.
The M is cut using a cricut. I borrowed a piccy of an old phone off the web and entwined slightly.
The other red drippy bits are nail varnish.

That's about it.

I am entering this into the challenges over at
