Ian as Dracula

I love altering Anya's and Ian's. I don't really know why - I certainly don't find anything lacking in them as they are, they are my favorite stamps. I think there is just something about them that sparks my imagination. So, now I have decided to turn Ian into Count Dracula (or at least a Victorian era Vampire)!

I started by using the sketch for Farm Fresh Fridays at The Greeting Farm. The two red panels were made by inking up one side of my Cuttlebug folder with black ink and running a piece of Bravo Burgundy CS through, then I cleaned it off and inked up the other side and ran another piece of Bravo Burgundy through. I then used a Real Red Craft pad on the raised edges to brighten it up some. I gave Ian a few hair extensions and some fangs, traced his body and re-drew his outfit. His hat is from the Showtime set (I keep giving that hat to other stamps! It's a great hat!)

Other Details:
Stamps: My Guy and Showtime - The Greeting Farm
Paper: Making Memories (black), Basic Black, Bravo Burgundy, Real Red - SU, PTI White
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair:E21,E25,E27,E29
