Twilight Tuesday Challenge

I'm So Excited!! Thanks to my dear, dear friend Karyn, who understands my addiction, I now know about the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge on TwilightTuesday.com.
If you like Twilight, I would head over there now and check out everyone else's creations too - there are some fantastic cards out there!
The requirements for this challenge are to use the color challenge of the Twilight colors (Silver/Red/Black) along with a stamp from The Greeting Farm.
It just so happens that last week I placed my order for a few stamps from The Greeting Farm and Edward arrived in the mail yesterday.
I set out right away to do this challenge.

I chose a black card stock for the base and built up from there.
I took a piece of white card stock and rand it thru my cuttlebug with the Textile embossing folder. I ran my Moulin Rouge Palette ink over the raised surface to make it really pop.

I grabbed a scrap of mirror-foil paper and cut and embossed that with my Oval Nestabilities die. You can see something reflecting in the highly mirrored surface on the left of Edward...oops!

I took some black lace by Model Crafts (from Wal Mart) and fixed it to the top and bottom of the embossed paper.

I stamped Edward (The Greeting Farm) in Black Memento Ink and colored him in with my Prismacolor pencils and blended it with OMS and stumps.
I stamped "Make Me Immortal..." by A Stamp in the Hand with the black, on white card stock, inked the edges in Moulan Rouge and added three silver brads.

Behind the corner of the oval and the sentiment, I placed two black feathers.

I glittered Edward with Prisma Glitter, because I love Vampires that Sparkle ... Doesn't he just Dazzle you??

As a finishing touch, I got out my Pearl Ex watercolor palette and my tiniest bristle paint brush and applied his mesmerizing Vampire eyes with Super Copper. I took a little but of Supper Russet and dabbed just a hint on his lips and he was perfect!

I pop dotted him on the silver oval and fixed it all to the card base!

I know my friend Dawn is going to try to steal him from me! She is more obsessed than I am. :)

Seriously they need to hire you to be the vampire sparkle maker person for the set you do a much better job then they did! I love the card and I am so glad you jumped in on the challenge it is great to see you creating things again. I want to come visit again but everytime I do we both end up in a slump! LOL Scary!

I really love the addition of the feathers too and that background looks great with this and the lace on it too!

Wonderful Anna!

Karyn,
I think that whether you visit or not, I would have had slumps ... I have creative cycles - I noticed it as long ago as when I was in Luckybug - I tend to be most active in fall and spring and stagnant in summer and winter. I get all gung ho when it starts to warm up in april, then it gets too hot in the room in Mid-july (not this year tho). Then I am good again in September until the middle of November when all heck breaks loose with my schedule for Christmas, and the weather gets too cold for me to be comfie in the room. So I don't think it's you... in all honesty!

so I guess we better plan the visits when it is slump time then :) Although I am not sure I want to be there in WI - maybe we need to start thinking winter retreat somewhere warm every year to get us rejuvenated!
