Introducing .... Edward.
I made this card for my niece as I FINALLY tracked down a Twilight T-Shirt for her (Chapters at Pinecrest if anyone is looking). I just have to get it in the mail for her.
For this card I used the Sketch for Challenge 43 over at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
Edward (yes THAT Edward) is from The Greeting Farm's Wild Sprouts Collection. Now, I must confess, I have NOT read the Twilight Books and I have NOT seen the movie. I HAVE got three of the books, borrowed from the tween-age daughters of my dear friend, Dorothy. I'll start them as soon as I finish Brisingr. But I digress....
sooo...I have no real reference point for colouring Edward. I just pulled out some Prismacolors and went to work -- kinda from the photo on the shirt.
I also finally cracked open my Core'dinations Hocus Pocus Black Magic Paper I got at Heather's Stamping Haven some time ago (yes, I horde my paper). I used my new Spellbinder's Borderabilities "In Spades" to create a nice (I think) effect by cutting and embossing a strip and then lightly sanding it to reveal the red core. I then took the cut-outs and re-inserted them with the red side facing out -- the card just needed a little -- more. Well, that and I didn't like the way the background papers were peeking through the cut-outs.
So...how did I do with Edward? Does he pass muster with the Twilight fans out there?
