Dracula Edwin and Friends

I decided to play again in my studio and enter this one challenge that I have been telling myself to enter. And I am glad that I did! The challenge is over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers and they want us to “use Edwin only.” I have been procrastinating for almost a week, because I usually stay away from creating anything masculine. After completing this, I think that I need to purchase some more Edwins. Edwin was fun to create with!

I colored Dracula Edwin with Copic markers. I apologize that I did not make notes on my colors. I do know that after coloring I used Spellbinder’s Mega Curved Rectangles to cut Edwin out. The edge distressing was completed with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I also added some sparkle with Copic Spica Pens.

Can you see Dracula Edwin’s friends? Those little bats were created with the Spellbinder’s Nested Bats. After embossing, I highlighted them with white pigment ink. My fun designer paper is the “Mischievous” collection from My Mind’s Eye. The black ribbon and orange crystals are from my stash.

Dracula Edwin is also going to be entered in:
Cards and More Challenge – Anything Goes
