Okay, y'all. Frankie and Agnes have both shown up for this Halloween season, so you knew Vlad would be joining the party didn't you? He even brought a boo-quet.
And doesn't he just look dapper in purple! I used the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping:
I tried to use a bat from the same stamp set for the button element, but it just didn't look right (you'll see what I did with the bat in a minute).
Check out this week's Color Throwdown:
The colors don't *have* to be Halloween-y, but they can work for a Halloween card just the same. I ended up using both Elegant Eggplant and Lavender Lace ink refills to make my background; I saturated a piece of watercolor paper with water, then dripped the ink on and kinda just messed with it until I liked it. I ended up with a puddle of purple water, so I made a few more backgrounds while I was at it, which you may see sometime soon. And my little bat migrated to the inside of the card:
And of course since Vlad is the last of the main trio from Best Fiends, I have to enter this over at Retro Rubber too:
Best Fiends is still ten years old and I think Teeny Tiny Wishes is pretty close to that age, too. Very retro stamps.
Little baby is kinda making some noise so I'm going to rescue him from his crib and feed him more vanilla maple crunchy things. They make him smell like a syrup factory, but I ain't complaining ;) Cheers!
