Vampire Boy

Today's card is, big surprise, Halloween themed!  I had colored Vampire Pumpkin from Saturated Canary last night and decided to make him into a card for Kayne's day care provider.  I used my Copics, of course, and then fussy cut the image.  I experimented a bit with his skin tone and I like the way it turned out.  I also added some glossy accents to his eyes.  The sketch is the current The Deconstructed Sketch (DS121).  Papers are My Mind's Eye Haunted.  I embellished with a few items from my stash- a metal swirl, a Recollections sticker, a piece of grosgrain ribbon, and a Martha Stewart spider web border punch.


  
I almost didn't have this post ready in time as I have been furiously cleaning since I got home from work.  I have company coming over tomorrow evening and  the ol' apartment was in need of some serious TLC!  Cleaning is not usually top of the list of priorities when I have things like spending time with Kayne and crafting on it too!  But I think it's presentable now (except for our craft/play room which is beyond help and needs a major overhaul!  lol).  I am really looking forward to my girls' night in with two of my best friends.  We are going to do Chinese take-out and rent Beautiful Creatures!  I read the books this Summer and am really looking forward to seeing how the movie compares.  I will also be picking up some gourmet cupcakes for desert from CocoBeni Confections.  It's been a while since I've entertained so I'm really looking forward to it!

I still have another card to make before I can go to bed so it's back to the craft room for me!  Hope your week is rolling along wonderfully and that you have fabulous plans for your weekend!
