Day 13 of 31: Vampire Queen

Hello! It's Day 13 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a card that features a fabulous image from The East Wind called Lucy Loo Vampire Queen.

I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I love how her skin and eyes turned out. Her skin has a greenish gray color to it, which I thought was great for a vampire. These markers blend different colors so beautifully. I can't say enough good things about them.

The highlights in her hair were done with a white Molotow One4All marker. I got it from Blick. This is seriously the best white marker/pen I have even used. And there are 3 different sized tips you can get. I added some ink on the background of the image to age it a bit and to dull out the white of the cardstock. I used Desert Sands and Rich Cocoa Memento. They're from Imagine. And of course, this was another perfect opportunity to spray some of Imagine's Love Letter irRESISTable Spray on the background for blood splatter.

That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They're all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

I love how you used so many products to color up Lucy Loo Vampire Queen. And using the Love Letter irresistable spray for blood splatter was genius!
This is so spooky and fun! Love the color too!

Spooktacular.
She looks like she's going to lick
the blood off her hand.
On a happier note - I love the zig markers.
I gave my copics to my daughter. I never
liked them.
thanks for sharing.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
