We all float down here...

"Want your boat, Georgie?" Pennywise asked. "I only repeat myself because you really do not seem that eager." He held it up, smiling. He was wearing a baggy silk suit with great big orange buttons. A bright tie, electric-blue, flopped down his front, and on his hands were big white gloves, like the kind Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck always wore.
"Yes, sure," George said, looking into the storm drain.
"And a balloon? I've got red and green and yellow and blue..."
"Do they float?"
"Float?" The clowns grin widened. "Oh yes, indeed they do. They float! And there's cotton candy..."
George reached.
The clown seized his arm.
And George saw the clown's face change.
Exert from Stephen King's IT page 14

One of my first scary movies and favorite of all time.  Years after watching it I finally read the book and couldn't get enough. 

Over at Haunted Design House their challenge is 
And what better movie than IT!

I decided to do a stair step card so I could show more :)

Pennywise image from internet
Stampin' Up Going Gray and First Addition cardstock and paper
Stampin' Up Red Riding Hood reinker
Moon Shadow Mist: Mystic Malachite 
Black marker, red sharpe, black pen
Adhesive, pop dots

I drew the flood drains under the town and popped up the entrance. 
I sprayed the water ways with the mist to give it that muddy sewer water look.
Making the boat was a little tricky, because I wanted you to be able to see the sails well, finishing it with drips from the reinker.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Haunted Design House: Movie Madness

  10. This book and movie were both very scary! I got to meet Stephen King - he was soo interesting - doesn't care a bit about what people think of him and his mind is running at full speed. He is afraid of everything - I share his fear of clowns so this one is dreadful fun! Well done!!!
