Get Your Spook On

Now if you read my previous post, you will know I have this teeny tiny lust affair going on for Damion Salvatore from Vampire Diaries.  I decided to color up Noah dressed up as Count Dracula and pretend he is really my oh so handsome Damion Salvatore as a young Vampire.  He spray painted his hair purple to trick all the children out there.  You see, Halloween is the only holiday a poor vampire can come out and play with all the other children.  They seem to be scared of them the rest of the year. A boy has to do what a boy has to do for a little fun and chocolate!

Kecia is our hostess at Sassy Cheryl's this week and she has challenged us to get our spook on.  Noah is available as "Count Dracula" is the Sassy Cheryl Digi store here.  A few months ago I took a Art Journal class with Cheryl Mezetti from Splash of Color.  We learned different techniques when creating with stencils.  I pulled out my tree stencil I have had for a couple of years and taped it to some purple card stock.  I then brushed some modeling paste over it.  I didn't have silver, so I mixed pearl with a couple of drops of silver distress ink.  I pop-dotted a fussy-cut Noah on top of the tree and made it into a easel card.  All three sentiments were cut from other pieces of scrap paper.  The fog effect was made with some cheesecloth for a spooky graveyard effect.  The black gate is a die from Spellbinders. the bit of shine on the BOO and the black crow are from Glossy Accents and Red Stickles lines his cape.

Now you have to pop over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and see what my talented Sassy sistahs have created this week.  Don't be afraid, all the spookies are cute as a button!

I plan on entering this card in:
