Hidee-ho stamp-a-reenos!

I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend wherever you may be. :)

Well, I'm getting down to the last few remaining Halloween stamps that I had started during past videos. And when I saw the new sketch challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie's I figured it was the perfect time to finish coloring up Monique from my two-toned hair video.

I really did intend to follow the sketch pretty literally but as the card came together and I started to come up with the theme and goodies that I wanted to add to it, I may have strayed a bit from the original. But I promise that the inspiration is still there. As for Monique I thought it would be cool to turn her into a kind of Halloween circus ringmaster character. And you just know that the ringmaster would have to be a fabulously sultry vampire. Thus the little hint of her last meal dribbling from the corner of her lovely grin. ;)

Well that's it from me today... toodles!
