ANNA MARINE'S - VAMPIRE



This is another of the gorgeous stamps by Anna Marine - although she's originally drawn as a dark image I like to use them in a much prettier way, not particularly being a fan of gothic and dark themes.


This one is called VAMPIRE but for me I think she makes a much more beautiful image when used in a more vampy/sexy way.
