I sat down to make a project for the Magnolia-licious Tricks-n-Treats Blog Hop and decided to use the Vampire Edwin stamp. I was trying to decide on what colours to use on his face and then I thought of "Twilight" and decided to make his skin glisten just like diamonds in the sunlight, just like Edward. I am such a geek. So this project ended up being a tribute to the "Twilight" Saga. Little Edwin (Edward) is bringing a Halloween treat to Bella. I used the sketch from the Just Magnolia Challenge Week 17 pictured above.
So this is the Tricks-n-Treats Set I came up with. The apple was a piece of clipart I found on the web. I never realized how much the shadowing lines on a stamp help with shading and highlighting when you are colouring. This apple took me three tries to get some dimension in it. I wrote the Bella inscription on the bag with my copic multiliner. I knew I was going to colour it with my copic markers and I didn't want the ink to run. To make Edwin's skin glisten, I first put shimmer paint on it then covered it with Diamond Stickles. Here is a close up picture.
The coffin holds candy or whatever other treat you would like to put in it. I printed off a PDF online and that it what I used for a template.
Here is a picture of the inside of the coffin. I haven't bought any halloween candy yet so I just used some Hersey Kisses. But I guess that works seeing how my little Edward is bringing a gift to Bella.
Finally, this is a picture of the Copic Markers I used.
On a side note, I created a new yahoo group. I`ve been looking for a place to share my projects with images that are not Magnolia and I have not have that much luck, so I created a group for it. I called it Copics, Stamps, Ink. Oh My!!! It is a place to share any projects you have created that include stamped images coloured with Copic Markers. If you are interested in joining this group, click on the link below or on my sidebar. I hope to see all the wonderful copic marker creations you come up with.
