I had so much fun making the mini headless horseman I decided to do another mini from Make It Crafty.

I coloured my mini Dracula stamp in a combination of ProMarkers and Copics.  The image is cut using a die and then cut along the bottom edge to make it straight.  I cut the bottom of his cape and legs out so it would look like the rest of the image is behind him.  I've used the bats from my Halloween PaperArtsy stamps so it looks like he's being followed by bats. Some of the bats I coloured with a biro to make them stand out.

For the actual card I've used black card stock, then overlaid some paper from Tim Holtz a Ideology paper I bought in  Hobby Craft a while ago.  At the top right the card is torn and then I've glued some eyes on to make it look like Dracula is being watched while he gets up to his mischief.

Before I mounted the Dracula image I used the tree and ravens part of the Halloween PaperArtsy stamps at the left hand edge.  I then decided to make him a path, some tomb stones and rough grass cut out of black cardstock (these were actually just hand cut I didn't sketch them or anything first).  Once the path and tomb stones were glued in place I put Dracula onto the card.

The final to touch was some wrought iron fencing cut out of black card stock with a die.  I cut some of the fencing to make it look more derelict.

I love this little guy he certainly looks like he's up to no good.
