V is for..

Vampire! This year The Craft Barn's ongoing challenge is based on the letters of the alphabet.  The idea is to alter a dictionary page;  however, the only old dicker that I would spare is my old Welsh one and there isn't a letter V in Welsh (we use "f" for the "v" sound and "ff" for the "f" sound). 

Fortunately, there is a get-out clause, which allows us to use another item as long as we remain consisitent throughout, so I shall be making ATC's.  And here's Drac himself, done with a stamp I made with my Imagepac for another challenge.

I masked him and applied Distress inks in Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough and Iced Spruce, with a bit of Black Soot around the edges. A touch of Barn Door for his eyes and fangs, and there he is.  Add a tiny little "V" from a set bought for 99p at my local craft shop (a real bargain!) and the job's a good 'un.

And, as he's an ATC, he's up for swopsies!  Anyone want him?
