For the lovers of Nosferatu

Like many people I have this serious love for the Nosferatu (Vampire to the lay person).  I got hooked on the Sookie Stackhouse (Trueblood) books by Charlaine Harris several years back and have gone from there…Can’t stand most vampire movies, but love love love the vampire books!  This image was a freebie from Dover Publishing.  Not sure where I went to get it, but there were three pictures I collected from there.  This is my favorite one of the three.  The title I have for it is “Dover Publishing_Vamp Coloring Book2″.  I colored their skin using Promarkers (satin for hers and ivory for him).  I colored the dress, his suit, and their hair using chalk, and colored the roses, their lips, and her trim on her dress using Stampin’ Write markers.  I added one of my Skull stick pins like what I have in my Etsy Shop.

Here is what is totally sad about this card…another true testament to prove just how attention deficit I am…I was being a good little DT member and doing my comments on one of my teams (OSAAT) when I came across this awesome piece of art from Blackdragon’s Crafts – a DT member of Haunted Design House.  I saw that it is another dark challenge like the one team I’m on called Forever Night.  Then I saw they were doing a nosferatu challenge and I HAD to make something for it…especially since Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring the challenge…I’ve recently found him and love his artwork, so HAD to attempt to win some!  LOL  now, can you remember what I was doing before I got this card started?  Yep, neither can I…Oh yeah, I was doing my commenting on OSAAT!  LOL  So how does my card meet their challenge??  I have a vamp ready to take a bite out of his lover…I think this shows the romantic side of the dark creatures.

Thanks for looking!
