Count Dracula

This cute Dracula image makes me think of Sesame Street's Count.  He's too adorable to be scary!

For today's card I used MTME's The Count digi image.  I digitally removed the extra elements so all I had left was the count.  I colored him with copics and sponged a little Brilliance pearlescent Lavender ink around the raised edge.

The background paper I used is from the Traditional Halloween pack.  Don't you LOVE those little spiders?  The rick-rac I used is shiny... it was hard to get it to photograph easily but it is really pretty in real life.

I used Spellbinder's for the spiderweb and spiders which I popped up to give them more dimension.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate each and every visit and comment!  Hop on over to the MTME Pretty Patterns Blog and play along with us.

Just Popping By To Say HI!

We have some new neighbors who just moved in across the street.  I found out that one of the daughters was recently diagnosed with diabetes.  I wanted to bake them some cookies or some other treat but didn't want to leave the little girl out so I contacted my cousin who has a son with diabetes.  She recommended taking them some pre-packaged popcorn so they can count the carbs. I immediately remembered the popcorn stamps in the digi sets About to Pop and Night at the Movies so I got started on this card, using this week's sketch of course.

I digitally arranged the popcorn bags and popcorn kernels and printed it up.  Using my spellbinders I cut it out and did some sponging and colored the image with copics. 

I added a little element to the sketch by typing "Just popping by to say HI!" and instead of an "o" I placed a popcorn kernel in it's place.  I think it turned out kinda cute!

The paper I used was from Pop Some Fun.  

Speaking of popping, I popped the main image and the sentiment up with pop dots after I tied the red checked ribbon around the main image.  Below is another angle of the card.  

Here's the sketch for this week.  I turned the sketch sideways so it would fit what I had in mind.  You are free to flip it anyway you want so long as the main sketch can be recognizable.

I hope you will join in the fun and play along with us.  Come and check out what the rest of the design team has in store for you.  Lots of great inspiration!
