Hello, All 
When I saw that the challenge at Haunted Design House was Gruesome Guardians I immediately thought of Cerebrus, the three headed dog who guards the underworld in mythology.

I could not find an image that worked for me but I did have a fab wolf image from LEJ Designs
I asked the artist, Lindsay, for permission to alter Wolf into Cerebrus and it was granted!
I altered wolf into a three headed beast on CAP2 then printed him out and coloured him with Promarkers.

I used some K & Co scrapbook paper  to represent the flames of Hades and trimmed it  to just under A4 and printed out some "gates" adapted from a digi kit straight on to the DP. This was layered
onto some red silk art card. Cerebrus was attached with foam pads to add dimension. 
The seal is a metal embellishment courtesy of the very generous Blackdragon.
All The Best,
And I would just like to add a big welcome to the lovely new people who have joined my blog.
