Today is the first day of my week long stay-cation. Unfortunately I had to spend most of this morning with a flood clean-up company as they positioned multiple fans and dehumidifiers around our house to try and dry out the damage from Friday night's burst pipe. The noise is rather loud and poor wee Dexter-Dog can't go to his room (the laundry) so he's feeling a bit lost. Tomorrow they'll come back to check how effective the equipment is and hopefully at some stage an insurance assessor will come round and tell us what's going to happen to repair the damage.
Enough of that - it's time for a card. I made a Halloween card today. Now I don't celebrate Halloween but I had to buy the sets Best Fiends and Just Between Fiends because I just love the artwork. Never knew if and when I'd use them, but today they came in handy for this card.
I used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary; the colors from Fab Friday and the Halloween challenge from Paper Players.
I stamped Count Dracula onto watercolor paper and colored him using markers and blender pen. I cut him out using an oval framelit. The card base is clear-embossed using Positively Chevron and the DSP comes from an old pack called Ghostly Greetings - again I had no plans for this paper when I bought it, but I just loved the black and grey striped sheets :)
I used a large oval framelit to cut a piece out of the DSP to frame the main image. Some linen thread and a brights button finish off the card. I even decorated the inside because I really love the little bat image in the set:
Thanks for looking.
