BREAKING DAWN

Although, I am not much into the Twilight series, I can totally see why my daughter and others like her love this new crop of vamps.
I have to admit that when I was young, I was completely enthralled by vampires. I loved watching reruns of Dark Shadows, was hopelessly in love with Michael Nouri's vampire character in the Cliff Hanger series (yeah, I am showing my age), and spent many a late night watching them on Chiller Theater.
That is why I love the EPIC TALES SET from ARTFUL INKABLES it is so much fun to make cards with this theme.
I embossed the background with silver and made the chess piece from white cards stock and shading. I used the Breaking Dawn cover as the template and inspiration.
The current THINK INK CHALLENGE is to USE ANY BOOK OR CD/ALBUM COVER FOR INSPIRATION and you still have till tomorrow at midnight Pacific Standard Time to link up your creation. You could win a wonderful grab bag of AI stamps!

Hope your weekend is wonderful!

Oh I am in to vampires too - have always been since watching Lost Boys when I was a teenager. This series is the best I reckon as they don't turn to dust in the sun - they just sparkle. I watch the vampire diaries too LOL. Great card. I love these stamps by AI - should use the ones I have LOL. Great work.
