Halloween card with Count Dracula

Hello everyone, it's already October and we start a new challenge on the Country View Challenges blog. The theme is Harvest or Halloween. And as you can see, I chose Halloween because I made a card with The Count (Dracula) by Tim Holtz.

I can't show you how I assembled the count, because I  was focused when I assembled him that I forgot to take photos. But I link here the video which shows you the steps of how to put the pieces together. I did follow this video too. The only difference that the face of my count is pale cream-beige and not blue. And except the black and white parts, I coloured every piece with acrylic paints.

For the background I chose a Halloween background stamp from Tim Holtz, Webs&Damask. Here I used the Damask. I stamped the image on watercolour paper with embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I blended Mowed Lawn, and then Rustic Wilderness to the surface.

I cut off the excess, and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink. 

What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, The Count Colorize die (665557)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Fireside (664193)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Santa's Helper (664192)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Frightful Things (664209)

Stampers Anonymous, Webs&Damask (CMS276)

Stampers Anonymous, Noteworthy (CMS446)

Rangers Distress inks (Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Black Soot)

Rangers Ditress Archival inks (Black Soot, Ground Espresso)
