Hi everyone! I have a TAWS card to share today inspired by one of my favourite TV programmes (which has now sadly finished) ... TRUE BLOOD!

I was putting away my Ooh La La and All Washed Up stamp sets when inspiration struck!  I spied the lipstick mark from Ooh La La and the water droplets from All Washed Up and immediately thought of one of the iconic symbols from True Blood!  To create the vampire teeth, I simply stamped the larger water droplet from All Washed Up twice onto some scrap paper, and then drew a horizontal line across them both. I added a tiny bit of shading with Copic marker E41 and then cut them out and glued them to the lips. The blood drip was created by stamping the smaller water droplet from All Washed Up in Rhubarb Stalk and then colouring with Copic markers. I added some glossy accents to the teeth and the blood drip for a bit of dimension (although it's hard to see in the photo). Finally, I stamped the sentiment (which is the name of the title song of the TV series) using Alphabet Soup.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!



  1. LOVE this card!!! This is so amazing. My daughter was into all the Twilight books, movies and meeting all the stars of the movie, this would have been the perfect card to make for her and her friends. This brought back so many fun memories of lining up for hours and camping out waiting for the movies, so much fun and so if your card!


Thank you so very much for taking the time to pop by and for leaving me a comment! I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs, Sem x
