Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental

You will need:

Font of choice – I used Blood of Dracula, found

Scrapkit is by Karras Kreative Korner. It’s called Immortal Love, and is FTU. You can download this great Trublood kit

Tube of choice. I used Eric by Christine Marie Kotlark. You can purchase Christine’s tubes through SATC
(Such a shame they are not selling the Man himself. Sigh . .  Big Eric fan!)

Mask of choice – I used 0Mask 011
I’m not sure where I got this mask, so if it is yours, please let me know and I will either remove it, or give credit.
