Twyla Twlight



It's the end of the month and you know what that means - the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop.  Yea!!  I've chosen Twyla Twilight as the guest of honor for my post.  She's one of four new images this month.

She's colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  For the background, I used the faux leather technique that I discovered on Vicky's blog (thanks!).  I thought it would make a fun looking dungeon type wall.  (We all know that vampires can't have sunlight streaming through the place.)  I used Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans) to ink up my "wall".  I added some jelly dots from The Rubber Cafe and Washi tape to complete Twyla's home decorating decor (less is best as far as she's concerned). On the inside, I added the Count Vladimir sentiment "I'm counting the days until I see see you again!"

For those that are new to the Dude Time Doodles blog hop, it's circular with no specific beginning or ending.  Just keep going until you've hit all the Dude/Dudettes.  Be sure to leave a comment with each of us as one of us is the Mystery Host.  The winner of a DTD image will be chosen from that person's comments.

You next stop should be Sharon.  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete list for the New Release Blog Hop:

Leah Ann (guest designer)

Have fun hopping.  All the new images will be available by 10am EST.  So go by and pick up a few.
