TTIC #27 Jasper Hale

So, I was pretty excited to do last week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. I instantly had some cool ideas in my head that I thought would be different from all the rest. I'll get into that in a minute... But, I needed my copy of Breaking Dawn in order to have a quote/get my facts straight. My sis had my copy though... which you probably wouldn't think would be a big deal since she lives right next door!!! I also need to reference Eclipse, which I do have in my possesion. Unfortunately, she never gave me the copy, and now it's Tuesday again, and there's a new challenge. I still would like to try and do it, but since the week's up, I'll just blog a little about it and if I have time (and she brings me my book), I'll make the project I had in mind. Fingers crossed that I get the time!!!

SPOILER ALERT!!! So, in Breaking Dawn, you finally hear about Jasper's story when he first became a vampire, and his "life" before the Cullens. It's told in Eclipse, but after Bella becomes a vampire, she really "sees" him; which I found to be quite interesting. Bella sees his neck and jaw and she realizes the hundreds of bite marks all over it are just like the mark that James gave her in Twilight. She couldn't see these marks with her human eyes. Jasper suddenly seemed dangerous to her. This made me think of this awesome cardstock that I have from Prism. It's called Jade Spring. It's a pearlized white (yeah, I know they sparkle) that has this fabulous, brushy, wispy pattern to it. If I don't get to make my project, I'll post a pic of the paper so you get the idea. Anyway, this paper reminded me of what Jasper's skin would look like. I figured that most of the projects would be about Jasper's ability to change the emotions of people around him... which is all well and good, but I wanted to get into the darker side of Jasper. The military man who was tortured both emotionally and physically. So I was going to make it kind of a "dark" project. Ahhhh, and as I am typing this, Pam brought me my book. Faboo! But, I think I'll start the new TTIC project first.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
