First Halloween card of 2012

This one's in honor of the featured stamper for this week over at SCS! Sophie LaFontaine!  She has an amazing gallery and I counted at least 6 that I'd like to case.  I chose one of her Halloween cards to work with.  HERE It Is.

 I used this adorable Dracula ($1 stamps from Michael's last year). Instead of a window I used this new (to me) Spellbinders' antique frame shapeability. I wanted the frame on dimensionals, so to make it stronger I inked my cut out frame with Versamark and then covered it with black embossing powder. It's a little bit shiny and more sturdy now.  I wanted it to look like a family portrait in the hall of a 'haunted' mansion!  I used some MME paper for the wallpaper-it's felted so it feels really cool!  The "floor" is from a Basic Grey pad as is the "wall" right behind Drac.
Drac is colored with copics. Greens used are YG21,  YG03, YG23 and YG25.  I used  C1, C3 and C5 for his cape and hair.  The YR12, YR16 and YR18 for his vest.  After I added some white pen to his teeth and some sparkle to his vest. I didn't re shoot the pictures, but it looks good, I think!
Guess that's it! I took the above picture so you could see the dimension the card has/

Enjoy your day!
