I try to avoid vampire movies, like .....welll....like Vampires! I confess I enjoyed the Twlight Series ( Books and movies, anything to turn kids on to reading!)
I didn't find good vampire quotes, but I found some movies. Oh good :(
FW Murnau's German silent classic is the original and some say scariest Dracula adaptation. You can catch some of it here on you tube.
Nosferatu 1922 I am properly scared just by the trailers.
Or you can catch this version from 1996 From Dusk Till Dawn, with George Clooney. (How can you pass up anything with George Clooney) Dusk Till Dawn 1996
This card was kind of fun, I used some Basic Grey background paper. The cute vampire movie poster clip came from some fun scrapbooking paper I picked up at a local scrapbook store in St. Louis For Keeps Sake. The paper is from Karen Foster Designs. eek and the bats are Inkadinkado clear mini stamps. Both JoANN's and For Keeps Sake had a fun selection. ( However, they were $1 at JoAnn's and For Keep Sakes had them for $2.25, however, FKS had a larger selection....and I ended up buying from both. ( So I try to hit both the big box and local shops)
I embossed the "eek" with some of Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder. I had gotten some at my favorite craft recycling shop ( she had bought out a local shop that was going out of business,) UpCycle Exchange. I had never used it, and had sort of expected it to work like regular embossing powder, but it works more like embossing powder that doesn't work right. You just need to be aware of it's effects before you stamp, you could be disappointed. Just be sure to use the right image and it will be great. I'm still glad I didn't pay the $4.99 that was marked on the container. At Upcycle, you pay what you want, and also trade. ( I have been weeding my fabric collection and have been getting some great deals!)
Of course, be sure to add a favorite smiggen of fiber to your piece, and be sure you check out the other 31 Days of Halloween participants listed in the sidebar!
See you tomorrow!
