Friends Having Fun - theme challenge - Eclipse!

This week at Friends Having Fun we are having a theme challenge. In honor of the upcoming release, the theme is Eclipse. Now- I have to admit that I have not read or watched any of the Twilight books or movies. GASP- I can hear you! I hear they are excellent. However, I will adhere to my belief that in the sunlight, vampires burn up. I'm just sayin'.

I had a BLAST working with this Sultry Vampyress image by Teri of Delicious Doodles.

I am very pleased with how the background behind the image turned out. It is done dabbing (that is the technical word, BTW) two different red and a charcoal ink. The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee. The purple highlights in her hair are just because I think you have to be so super sexy to carry that off with class and she does!



Aren't her bracelets fun? I want a pair! I added stickles in black to her skirt for the ultimate glam.

Now- I leave you will one final thought

Hiya hun!
WOW - really liking what you did with my Vampyress image - love that glam and glitz!
I'm with you on the vamp front, not read the books. Saw the second movie with D no1 on Friday, but not impressed. Blokes were too young for me, and not butch enough! LOL
Have a great day!
Hugs,
Teri xx

Ooh, that background did turn out awesome! Even though I love the whole Twi thing, I absolutely love that Angel pic! Too funny.:)

I love your card. This is amazing! The sparkles of the dress are beautiful. I love the Angel picture at the end, but I have to tell you that at first I was thinking, "Why is Booth talking about vampires?" Haha. Way too early in the morning!

With Twilight and all the vampire movies on this is perfect and you did a great job with the colouring and the bling!

I'm one of the ladies gasping out here in blogland!!! Loved the books ~ the movies not so much. I do think they should burn up in the sun though! Your card is fabulous Alex! Hope you are having a great day! :)

Wow that is unusual card. I've been surfing the net for over a day now, I am searching for different cards. Yours are very unusual because most of the cards that I saw are almost the same. They all have a very cute drawing unlike yours, little scary.
