Macabre Monday Crimson Crime Scene Week 2

OOOPS!  I'm a little behind here.  Yesterday began WEEK 2 of our Crimson Crime Scene Challenge at HDH and I  gotta say, I'm a wee bit disappointed with all my pals who call themselves "dark" crafters 'cause only two of you have managed to participate so far.  What'samatter?  Scared of a little BLOOD?  tsk, tsk! So we're looking for inspiration from famous crime scenes, either past or present, and there damn well better be some RED on the project, ya hear? Easy peasy!  I found this glorious pic on the net of Jack the Ripper and surrounded him with actual photos of his victims (changed from b&w to RED).  The snippet of text is from an actual letter he wrote so I decided to back the little photos with my new Spellbinders Postage Stamp die.  See, now how tough is that? Check out the fab inspiration from the Minions of Week 1, as well, and if you'd loke even more, here's a couple of other projects I've done in the past in the same vein.  Lizzy Borden HERE and Ed Gein HERE.  Fair warning, though. They're a bit twisted, even for ME!  xxxx

I'm entering this in the Left of Center No DP and Open Minded Crafting Roll Out the Red.
