Twilgiht

There was a cool challenge this week from Unity to use one of the Twilight series book covers as inspiration for a card. I chose to use the fourth book, Breaking Dawn.


And here is my take on it. I used the Dream Tree from Unity with the emboss resist technique. First I stamped the tree on white card stock, with Versa Mark, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Then I sketched in some lines for the grid. I used post-it's to mask around each square, one at a time, sponging in the black. Next I drew in a drop of blood, using a red craft marker and embossed that also.

After sponging in the grid, I sponged all around the tree with black. I also went over the white squares a bit to soften the edges.

Then I sandwiched the card stock with copier paper and ironed over the embossed areas to remove the embossing. The embossed areas were left nice and crisp white. The sentiment is from Baroque Motifs by Stampin' Up.

I'll be back tomorrow with another Year of Flowers project!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
