Anya Glam Vamp and The Countess

I have two vampire projects today! One of my favorite subjects. The first is for a special Rick St. Dennis post on the Airless Chambers Blog.   The second  is for this month's Smeared and Smudged Freaky Freebie Challenge.

Say hello to The Countess. As soon as I got her, I knew I wanted to pair her with the fantastic Spider Web stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. I used their fantastic silver embossing paste to get the image on to my black cardstock.

I colored The Countess with my Spectrum Noir markers.

I hope you can see the dimension of the silver web. In person, it's really shiny! Now on to my S&S tag.

This is Anya from the Glam Vamps collection. It has been one of my favorite sets of Smeared Ink's since I was on the Smeared & Smudged DT. So when I saw that Anya was this month's challenge, I needed to play.

Again, I used my Spectrum Noirs to color in the image. Then I dripped on some Candy Apple Glimmer Mist on to the tag.

Last, I added the "Suck It" with a Just Rite Alpha stamper and the cool red yarn for a tassel. Quick and simple, but I like it. I hope you have enjoyed my offerings for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I just love the Countess' eyes! The red in her hair, the rose and the brads ties everything together. Cool card!
I love your project with the Countess, Alison. The other one's not too shabby either.

Fantastic work the the spiderweb too.

Fangtastic projects, Sistah! Your colouring on the Countess rocks and I'm loving the webbed stencil. I imagine the silver paint looks immense in real life! You know I have a soft spot in my heart for Anya :) Awesome tag you've created! It displays her so well :)

Hugs, my talented friend!
