I Know What You Are for Sassy Studio Designs

Oh, it's Friday and over at the Paper Craft Planet group for Sassy Studio Designs, us Fabettes are gearing up for a big event for us!  We're so excited to get in on the long waited final chapter of the Twilight series!  Lindsay has created an oh so fabulous freebie for us on this Fabulous Freebie Friday!  Remember it's only available for 24 hours so rush on over and pick it up!  Regan has challenged us to sparkle and I sparkled as much as I can, in one case, maybe a little bit too much.  For me to say too much sparkle or bling, that's a lot!

As for the Twilight series, you either love it or hate it.  Kind of like the Harry Potter books.  Well, I loved them and I think they meant so much to me because I read them with my girls (they're 27 and soon to be 26!).  They bugged me to read them and once I got into them, I had to read every one of them!  One of my favorite scenes from the movies was when Bella told Edward, "I know what you are."  I clinched when I read it and was on the edge of my seat when I saw this scene in the theater.  Here's my take on it:

I just love this image and it was so much fun to color!  Bella and Edward are colored with copics and Spectrum Noir markers and Bella has some stickles on her sweater.  I blocked out everything except Edwards skin and used some Tattered Angel spray on him.  If you remember, Bella said his skin looked like diamonds!  The papers are from the Immortal Love paper stacks from DCWV.  My image is cut out with Spellbinders and I used some Scrapper's Floss around the image and tied it with a button.  The sentiment is a metal embellishment form Close to My Heart and I distressed the edges with my Close to My Heart Distressor and used Black Soot distressed inks along the edge.  I added some black porcelin flowers from Recollections and baubles from my stash to the edges.

Here's a close up of the angst filled couple.

Here's a glimpse of the inside.

This view shows Edwards face without shimmering so much.

This is an angle where Edward's face doesn't glow quite so much.

I love this paper for the inside.  This paper pack is so spooky and really captures the feel of the books and movies.  It's one of my favorites!

Make sure to stop over at the group and pick up this fabulous freebie and see what my other stamping Fabette sisters have for you!  They always surprise and inspire me!  As for me, I'm off to do some movie watching before the new release!  Enjoy!
