Did you notice my dracula's got style - like that pur-dee bow tie? LOL

I really enjoyed coloring my friend; I used Taylored Expressions Sketch from 9/10/10, you can see it HERE. I used PTI's 2009 Bitty Dot Basics in Orange Zest and Smokey Shadow. I stamped the Orange Zest DP with black bats & embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut the strip up and sponged all the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I colored Dracula with Copics and then sponged the edges with PTI's Vintage Cream & Black Soot Distress Ink, layered the image onto more polka dot paper and a final layer of white sponged with the Black Soot.

The large layer of Smokey Shadow polka dot paper was distressed for some additional interest. I tried to get a picture of the inside of the card as it has bats, some more dotty DP scallops, but my camera shut down and said "battery exhausted"...much like me! :( Sorry!

Now, won't you visit the other RI Rock Stars and leave them some love:

Thanks for visiting; hugs, ~M.
