” From within the darkness a cold pungent air surrounds me, thick and nauseating. Fear gripping my very soul, soon to be no more. Cursed with eternity by the uninvited guest, my heart never to beat again ……


I am so happy to be special guest designer a second time this month at Whimsy Stamps! Its their annual 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration and you definitely need to check it out! There is so much fun to be had ! So for this Project I guess you noticed, it’s all about Vampires! The decision was difficult but Vlad won in the end!

I wanted to give this card a Hollywood Classic Horror look. I started by ink blending a background and then using Whimsy’s Slimline Film Strip Die, cut out of a sparkly card stock and adhered to the background. Next I used images from Screams in Vein and Grave Epitaphs, I also used Build-a-Graveyard Die Set. All was coloured using Copic markers and Prismacolor Pencils. Highlights were added using Gel Pens and I added sequins from my stash for a little more shine and interest. Something that always strikes me as amazing about whimsy’s products, is just how versatile they are. They can be mixed and matched for different occasions.

Copic Colours

Vampire – 0, YG91, BG10, BG000, T0

Girl – E11, E00, E0000, E34, R46, E37, E39, E49, YG05, YG25, T2, R27, R17

Grave – BG10, C4, BV31, N2, C5

Skull – E31, G82, C5
