i compel you to have a fangtastic birthday

 Dracula looks like he's using his best compelling gaze to wish you a FANGtastic birthday.  This new stamp set is part of our Monster Mash Up Collection, it's called "I Compel You" and it has matching dies.  There's another humorous vampire set that released this month called "Bite Me" it too has matching dies and both sets can mix-n-match.

 Our Monster Mash Up Collection is definitely NOT just for Halloween but can be used for birthday's and just for fun cards all-year round.

I started off by heat embossing Dracula with black embossing powder then coloring him with Copic markers and using the matching "I Compel You" dies to him out.

A word of caution, you can see in the photo below above Dracula's left eye some black smudges. That's what happens sometimes when you use Copics and heat embossing (it can also damage the tips of your Copics).  It doesn't happen with all embossing powders or all colors it's really hit and miss but I haven't found a black embossing powder yet that doesn't smudge.  Let me know if you have found one.    

For the bat I just stamped him with Memento ink and colored it in with copics and added some highlights with a white gel pen.  I love the tight grip Dracula has holding the balloon...he's so intense - lol.
