Day of the Dead

Hello again!  I finally managed to complete another card.  I just HAD to color up this gorgeous creature Annierexia from Simply B Stamps.  She was a $1 deal from the generous Betty and even though there was no requirement to play along since I purchased her (and her The Stamping Chef counterpart Bite Me) I felt like I should attempt at least one card for their Vampire vs Day of the Dead challenge.  So here it is.

Annierexia was colored with Copics and cut with a Classic Ovals die then matted on top of one of the Floral Ovals dies (both from Spellbinders).  Since I was pressed for time I kept my layout simple and used background paper that could hold it's own without a lot of embellishments.  This sheet is from the new Recollections Halloween collection, Haunted Midnight Magic.  I stamped a bit on the edge of the image panel to grunge it up and then simply added a big bling flourish, a couple of flowers, and the obligatory glitter for the challenge (Lavender and Gunmetal Stickles).



Now off to start work on another SBS project...  These cards don't make themselves!  All the little side challenges are so tempting and fun that they distract me from the cards I'm supposed to be making!  Both images are now available in their respective stores for regular price.

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E31, E79, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, V06, V12, V15)
