Verity Vamp and Boris the Bat: SBS Blog Hop!

It's Friday during the week of a Simply B Stamps release, so that means it's blog hop day! Although we released the new Spunky Spooks collection a wee bit earlier than usual, we certainly didn't want to pass up the chance for a fun hop.
Today, we are sharing Verity Vamp and Boris the Bat. Love her! She's a vamp...of course I love her! She is my second favorite of this collection...shocking, I know! But Marcy comes out on top with this one. Did you see her? Check out my previous post for a card I made with her, and her pet scorpion Moses if you missed it.

She's fabulous! I love her outfit! Especially that hat! I have a thing for using purple and red together, so that was the obvious choice for me when I started to color this image in.

I used mostly watercolor markers for this, but with a few Copics thrown into the mix. My sentiment is also from SBS, and it's from the Wickidz senti collection. You've gotta snag those sentiments!

I used my Drippy Goo Martha Stewart punch, natch, and some fab-u-ous taffeta-looking cardstock. See how the black shimmers? I hope you have enjoyed this hop! And not only that, but this entire release of Spunky Spooks! Here is the entire hop list, so that you don't miss a thing.


SBS Blog again

Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
