Screen 2 Scrap - Villa Volta

Hi everyone, on this windy Sunday.  It certainly feels like the first day of Autumn now, the sun is low its windy and there's a chill in the air :(  Time to get out the scarves and gloves!
Screen to scrap's challenge this month is to make a layout with the poster of Last House on the left as inspiration.  A house must feature somewhere so I made this the photo.
I did lots of stamping and embossing with gold and copper powders. 
The story of this house is that it belonged to the leader of a band of thieves called Hugo Van Der Loonsch-duinen and (in short) he did some really bad things and is imprisoned in the house for eternity. 
The walls of the house turn and make you feel as if you are upside-down; not a good idea to go on this ride if you have just eaten chips and mayonnaise!!!
Thanks for looking
Jolanda xx
