Haunted Design House Challenge True Blood Truebie

I really love the Haunted Design House, their challenges are always really cool.  Anyway my husband and I have watched series one and two of True Blood so I thought this was the challenge if any to try.  I love horror particularly vamps, zombies etc.

Anyway I got this stamp, marie antoinette, kraftin kimmie, last week and thought it would make a good Queen Sophie-Ann from olden days and that she was probably playing Yahtzee then before it got commercialised hehe (as if this is real).  My hubby said only I would choose such an obscure character tehe.


The flower again was made from paper flowers from poundland and inked first with tim holtz tattered rose then coloured with two pink promarkers and one red copic marker.  The middle is a brad from one of those little packs I think they are dovecraft.  I added a crown charm dropping from the cameo with red wire.  The paper is coordinations black cauldron or something.  I sqashed then sanded then distressed the edges and made a bit for the side with the martha stewart doily punch then folded it and sanded. 



The Yahtzee I printed then squashed and distressed with I think tea dye and tattered rose tim holtz distress inks. (All my stuff gets put away in the day as the kids would probably choke on something so I have the worst memory at the moment so that is why it sounds like I am unsure).   I put Sophie-Ann on the name slot.  I also printed yahtzee using free fonts website, then put what is supposed to be little drops of blood, red flat backed pearls.



I used liquid pearls on her hair and stuck down the flat backed pearls with it.  I printed out a super mini yahtzee sheet and placed it where the letter goes on the stamp.  I coloured her with a mixture of promarkers and copics and added some vampire teeth.



 Anyway I think I have bored you long enough.
