The theme over at TGIF this week is Vampires!
I have as yet not read or seen any of the new batch of vampire genre............which is a bit strange as I always used to have a sneaking desire for
Christopher Lee to come up and bite me sometime! HOL
This did not turn out as I had intended.........but you live and learn.........part of the reason for blogging is to record the things that work and don't work for future reference.

I stamped the Inkadinkadoo vampire bite with cranberry onto white textured card stock and heat embossed with clear then used a clear emboss pen to fill in the teeth and emboss with clear again.......however the pen leaves a blue tinge on the work which was something I was not happy about........will have to think of something else if I want to do that again.......I expect vampires don't brush their teeth that often so I don't suppose they would be pristine white!!! LOL
Inked the background with DI SM and WS and stamped the T!m scrolls around the edge with Adirondack wild plum which strangely does not look much different from the cranberry when placed on top of the SM! Roughed up the edges and dragged on WS.
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
