Creepy little Steampunk Girl....

Hello my dear followers....!

Halloween is getting nearer, and so I felt I must to do something darker... Yes, that's right, I'm not just able to do cute cards :-D :-D

For this one, I deverted this beautiful "Steampunk Girl" from Aurora Wings into a darkside one...
Maybe a vampire?... Or just a ghost of the past?
Somehow, I had to think of "Claudia", the girl vampire at the movie "Interview with the vampire"..

But enough said, here is my card ;-)

The colored image is sized 10,5x8cm, the card is about 14x14cm.
I've colored her with Copic Ciao Markers.

The edges where distressed, and for the "blood" I used some red acrylic paint.

.... a little close - up on her face and red glowing eyes.......

For the clocks I used "CrafTables" cutting dies from Marianne Design.

On the dry-embossed parts of the big clock I worked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain, on the smaller one I used silver embossing powder.

The blood is also done with red acrylic paint, in addition I added some glossy accents for a threedimensional effekt on the blood drops.

.... Hand cut and rolled paper roses, and the craft papered ornament at the background is hand - drawn and handcut with a scalpel.....

.... The gears are made with cutting dies from "X-Cut".

This part of a poem from Edgar Allan Poe ("Spirits of the dead") seemed to be perfect for the scroll I added.

The edges where distressed with Tim Holtz paper distresser and Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I hope you like my card, even if it's a little bit creepy ;-)
Sometimes, my dark soul wants to come out :-D
