Artful INKables Twilight Challenge 1

How excited am I??? Artful INKables has decided that, in celebration of Eclipse hitting theatres this month, they were going to have a month long set of challenges! And a Blog Hop! Yes!!! Read all of the deets HERE.

The first challenge was to use any of the Twilight Saga book covers as inspiration. Well, being that my fave book in the series is Breaking Dawn, I just had to use that as my inspiration!

AI1

I kept this card a bit more simplistic then what I usually do, but the covers of these books are simplistic, so I wanted to stay true to that.

AI2

I, of course used my Artful INKables stamps to create this card. I stamped the queen, colored her with my pencils, cut her out and pop dotted her. She is sitting atop 2 copies of the harlequin image. One alone wasn’t big enough for what I was trying to do here. So I matched the 2 pieces together as closely as I could and glued them together.

AI3

I wanted to give off the idea of the text written at the bottom of the novel, so I added the “destined” which is from K & Co. I was going to do it on the black, but I thought that it was too low down there. Plus, I didn’t want to be overly literal with my take of the cover.

I can’t wait to see what the next challenge is! There’s a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! How great is that???

One a side note, I’d like to invite you back here tomorrow. Many of you are big fans of The Greeting Farm, and the Smeared & Smudged Design Team is having a super special blog hop featuring some of their new “Creeper” digis!!! So please, join me and the rest of the gals bright and early tomorrow! It is going to be SO much fun!!!
