I decided to play around a bit and do some Halloween cards just for a bit of fun. I bought this stamp this week Kraftin' Kimmie's Vampire Queen. I love reading horror (not the Dark Fantasy stuff but the real gruesome horror stuff) so I didn't want her to look girly. I started colouring her at lunchtime at work using polychromos pencils. Cassie saw her and said how much one of her friends liked Halloween and if I had time to finish her before the day she would buy her from me. I used copic markers for the grey background and then finished her off today by stamping some bats from a PaperArtsy Collections. I used a biro to fill in the "bite me!" and a few of the bats to make them stand out.
I've used black card stock for the background on the card and also used this to mount the vampire image. The other papers are Lili of the Valley & NitWit Collections - Solids Promises and Lili of the Valley & Raspberry Road Designs - Father Knows Best.
The purple ribbon is a piece of satin and is from Lili of the Valley - Little Bags of Ribbon Purple. Here's the freaky bit as I was preparing to mount the image over the top of the ribbon I managed to slice my thumb open with my craft knife - the lady obviously demands BLOOD!!
Anyway, once mounted, I gave her some purple and black roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and finished the card off with some black self adhesive gems.
She came out much better than I'd hoped and I know Cassie will love her.
