Poor Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII. She married him when she was just 19 and he was thirty years older. Young and pretty, naive in the ways of the court, she had little chance of survival. She was beheaded on February 13th 1542 at the Tower of London and is said to haunt it to this day.
Creating a "Spooky" mixed media piece is the challenge for the Melange Team this month and so here is my spooky image of the ghost of Catherine Howard. You can see more wonderful and spooky art at the Melange Team Blog!
