Artful INKables Twilight Eclipse Blog Hop



Welcome to our Customer and Design Team Twilight Artful INKables blog hop! Make sure you start at the Artful INKables Blog, so you don't miss a single thing!

To celebrate the release of ECLIPSE today, we're highlighting the Artful INKables Twilight inspired sets: Into the Moonlight, Fictionally Inspired and Epic Tales. Artful INKables also has a set of Vampire Romance Themed Charms available!

I've been into graffiti lately and wanted to make a Twilight inspired graffiti wall. I started by drawing in the sidewalk. Using the emboss resist technique, I stamped the Twilight images. Then I masked off the sidewalk and sponged in the wall color. I drew in a few bricks here and there. I unmasked the sidewalk and colored it with Copics adding a few sprigs of grass here and there. I thought I was done but my DH asked how I could have a vampire card without blood. Good point I thought....so I made a special trip to the store to buy the drippy goo punch (not on sale and no coupon! Eek!). I punched out the goo on a scrap and used it as a mask to sponge the dripping blood here. NOW I'm done!

The next stop on the hop is ALISON.
