It’s Day 3 of the Smeared & Smudged Bloody Valentine Hop. I’m sorry to say that it’s over already, as I was having a good time making a bit of a mockery of this silly holiday. But, have no fear! I may just have a few other anti-Valentines up my sleeve. If there’s time, of course. So for today’s offering, I have card that features another Strange Skin image. I realized that I had never used this one before…and I don’t know why. Being a vampire fanatic and all. So this one was drawn by Jorge, and I really like it. Oh! And I used this month’s Very Sketch Challenge from S&S for the layout of the card. This is the Fangtastic Vampire Girl. She’s sort of reminiscent of Strange Skin’s Cameos, which is why I am now totally nutty for her. Those Cameos are amazing. This pic is a little out of focus, but at least you can basically see the coloring I did on her. I think. I actually used 10 markers to color her in, so I hope you can see the shading. I did something new in Photoshop! All by myself! For those of you that really know me, this is truly a feat. I made my own sentiment!!! Go me! I kept the sketch the same, except for turning it on it’s side and adding my faux staples, which I made with Liquid Pearls. I wanted real staples, but didn’t want to lif my patterned papers and risk ripping them…and I hate when you can see them on the inside of a card…so I opted for the Pearls. So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed the Bloody Valentine Hop! Here is the full hop list. Please make sure to stop by and say hi to everyone. Thanks for popping in to say hello to me! Have an inspiring day!
