I'm sure everyone knows what time it is - indulging my Macabre Monday needs at Haunted Design House.
This week, it's Long in the Tooth - something with chompers, teeth, fangs, dentures, etc.
I went with my favorite toothy fiend - Dracula. It's not that other vampires aren't fabulous, it's just that he stole my heart when I was a young and impressionable child. I was 11 when Frank Langella began his starring roll in my feverish dreams of marriage and love and whatever it is that happens when you're all grown up and in love with a vampyre.
The fact that dying was a necessity didn't seem like such a bad thing. Oh, and that he would kill my best friend, family, betrothed? Blah, blah, blah. He was going to love me FOREVER! Also, he had awesome fashion sense with that cape and puffy shirt. What can i say - I was 11.
I used Versamark to clear emboss the coffins on the card base, then stamped the mouths with Pearlescent Poppy (Brilliance) - sorry all the stamps I used are clear and unmounted. Then I had to outline them with a drippy blood border - I seriously need to step away from this punch.
I wasn't sure what to do with the Son of Dracul, he's so small, so I gave him a little pop with some glitter flecked tulle I found in a drawer and a crepe paper rosette. Of course, I want all his kisses so that's the sentiment I used.
I'm also entering this into a few new challenge blogs - yikes, I'm expanding my horizons!
