* Vera Lane Studio: Frankie's Mansion


At Vera Lane Studio we have another new release today. It is Mansion Gates, a set which is incredibly versatile. I chose to team it with Frankie and Carlos to make a Halloween card; they are welcoming you 'foolish mortals' to their home :) 

I chose a background of creepy trees, added the Mansion Gates png image and printed it out. I coloured the gate posts and the gargoyle with Copic markers and inked around the edges in black. Frankie, Carlos and Corbett, the crow, were printed separately, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. I glued Corbett directly to the  background as if he is sitting on top of the gate and popped Carlos and Frankie on foam tape for dimension. The sentiment, from Mansion Gates, was cut into strips, adhered to the background and outlined with fine liner in black.


I love Frankie's high waisted trousers - they remind me of Simon Cowell!!

How cute is Carlos! And Corbett, the crow, is creepy cute and quirky! The gargoyles can be used separately to the stone/brick pillars and the gates could be the entrance to a princess's palace or to a spooky old house where witches gather - just use your imagination and the list is endless!

That's all from me for today.
