…and it's Twilight! So does that surprise you that I did it? Ha!
My beautiful friend Sankari and her friend Brooke have a great Blog where they have a challenge every Saturday. On Friday they show snippets, and when I say snippets I mean teensy itsy bitsy tiny mini picture pieces of a movie, they keep adding more so you can guess the movie that they will be doing the challenge for on the following day. You would be surprised at how fast people guess with such a small hint.
So this week was Twilight. The challenge was to use the colors Red and Black in your card with Sparkles! You are not limited to those two colors, and you were to have fun adding the sparkle. Well Sankari's card is drop dead gorgeous and I love how she takes the pictures of her cards. I was gabbing with her last week, and I told her I was going to start doing her challenges, so I picked a great week to start. She also promised to come visit me in Arizona, and that I can hardly wait for.
Here is my card. I used the apple because there is an apple on the book cover, and the apple is forbidden fruit like Bella (although with me doing the cleanse diet, I am eating a lot of them lately), and I love love love this retired set, and it was full of apples. I was tempted to color them all green, except one, but I just did them all red. This is also my first attempt at coloring a full image and making a card using my sansodor and watercolor pencils, I also used the prismacolor pencils too. I love how the bucket and the background turned out. I wish my apples had more definition, but I have to practice more.
Let me know what you think…
Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Paper: Whisper White, More Mustard, Basic Black, Real Red, Patterns Pack from Hostess set
Misc: Watercolor Pencils, Prismacolor Pencils, Sansodor, stumps (getting used to those too), white gel pen, little bit of bling (for my sparkle) was added on the screw of the handle of the bucket.
I like how it turned out. My friend Marjori will be so happy I used this set, it is one of her favorite…ha!!! (waving Hi to Marjori with a sheepish grin)
A few of you have emailed me to ask me to take pictures of my neighbors fence. I went out today to do it, and they have filled more in, and I was afraid my neighbor would wonder what I was doing.
To get a good picture, I would have to go over closer to the fence and he would really see me. He is nice, but I still don't want him asking questions about what I was doing…you will just have to take my word on it.
Those of you that have subscribed through Feedblitz, I don't know how accurate that is. I know I have subscribed to blogs through it and NEVER see any emails notices. I would just either go to my blog every day, I usually post every day…or use Googlereader, that is way easier, and what I rely on now. I tried to find a Googlereader widget signer upper doohicky, but couldn't. So I just wanted to give you a heads up if you don't see anything come to your email about my blog being updated…it's not me…it's Feedblitz.
Have a great Tuesday, I am headed to the dentist, I think I got a crown loose, I hope not, but sometimes it feels like it, perhaps all the apple acid juice has eaten away my crown glue. My BFF Tracy is coming for a week, the first part of June so I wanna get all that stuff done before she comes. I also have my Technique Lovers Class to figure out and post projects so that can all be ordered too by the end of the month.
Back to Feedblitz, if you want to receive my email newsletter (this is different then a notice that I have updated my blog). This is my Stampin' Up! newsletter, with ideas, and class schedules etc. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me to add you. Many people misunderstand when they subscribe to my blog that they are signing up for my newsletter and that is not the case. I would love to hear from you!
Thanks so much for stopping in! Make sure to try the Cinema Saturday challenge. I'm gonna go turn on my Twilight soundtrack while I work on my class…and be inspired!
