A Vampy Canvas

I am getting quite into decorating canvases at the moment so I bought some Ranger Texture Paste and some stencils to play with. It's great to be able to add some extra dimension rather than just inking directly on the canvas.
I coloured up Faery Ink's 'Ophelia Vamp Juice' a little while ago, but didn't know what I was going to do with her. Decorating my house for Halloween, I found my blood splatter tulle that I bought in Michael's last year and thought it would make great curtains. 
First I used the texture paste all over through a stencil and let it dry, then I rubbed all over with a sponge tool and Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  I then used Memento Tuxedo Black in a few areas to give a bit more of an old look. 
I cut a length of tulle and tied some twine around for shaping before gluing it around the edge of the canvas. Lastly I attached the image with 3D foam squares. 
I coloured the image with the following Promarkers - Caramel, Pastel Beige, Satin, Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Cool Grey 1-5, Pine, Forest, Apple, Lipstick, Crimson, Berry, Aubergine, Plum, Amethyst, Lilac & Purple.
