TBS DT: Dracula Edwin

Hello hello! It's Monday, and you know what *that* means... It's my day to show you a Beary Sweet Challenge-inspired sample. Our BSC #12 challenge is to use misting on your project, and I've Glimmer Mist'd the heck outta Dracula Edwin and his lair. No, it's not garlic-flavored Glimmer Mist! I'd like to keep this little cutie around for a while, but he's already spoken for. *sigh*

I did "the usual" with pearl Glimmer Mist - spritzed the flowers (except the velvet Petaloo), black branches and vintage vampire fang tag. The best part of my misting, though, is the dry-embossed coffin - I dipped a teeny tiny paint brush into the Glimmer Mist bottle and painted the embossing! How cool is that?! I also painted Edwin's bow tie, purple cape trim and shoe strings. I really like the effect and definitely plan to use it with other mist colors.

Here is a glimpse of the easel flap. Inside is a panel for Happy Halloween greetings.

Adorable - I love the way you blended the vintage with the cute! Very cool how you painted the embossing with the Glimmer Mist.

Have a great week.
