ATC~ teen terror: twilight!

O.K, it's Wednesday so time for bit of fun with an ATC. It's a shame we can't get more people to join in as I love making them . . just great fun to just let your imagination run riot for half an hour or so (only small, so don't take long) and be creative without having to worry how it will look or end up. Sometimes I may use them as card toppers but most of the time they are just for fun and serve no purpose what so ever! . Like this weeks :D

The theme is 'teen terror' so anything teenage related. Well that instantly made me think of this stamp from Greeting Farm. He's called Edward and looked tooooo much like THE Edward from Twilight so that just started me off on the whole 'Twilight' theme and you can't get more teenagey angst than that, now can you?! So I found him a Bella (another greeting farm stamp) but then couldn't fit them all onto 1 ATC so played around and ended up with 2 ATCs which I have put side by side to make a fold out/pop up style double ATC. Found some stamps for the background scene and away I went!

Here it is tied up closed, to resemble the book and then what it looks like opened up flat . .

and here it is again flipped open and standing up. . .
My particular favourite bit (and hubby's) is the truck I found for the background . . doesn't it look like the one in the movie, heehee?! although hubby said it wasn't battered/faded enough *rolls eyes* (it's from a SU set).

Here's another shot of it from a different angle, looks like he's crept up behind her LOL . .
Oh, I'm assuming you all know what I'm talking about but for those not bitten (sorry for the pun!) by the whole Twilight thing, it's a teenage vampire romance novel turned movie series.

Really hope you'll hop on over to the ATC blog to see the other ATCs made by the rest of the DT and maybe spend 30mins and join in with us - as long as you're base card/ATC is 3.5x2.5 it's up to you how you decorate it . . go on, raid your scrap pile and have a play!

  • Stamps: Main characters are 'Annika' & 'Edward' from the Wild sprouts range by Greeting Farm. Apple on the front (like the cover of the novel!) and the tree/moon are CC designs stamps. The truck and pine trees are from an SU set. The text is from fab little alphabet clear sets, 99p! love the grungy one on the front even though you can't really tell it says twilight!
  • Colouring: all Copics apart from the sky which was 'weathered wood' distress ink sponged for that grey/moody look of their hometown, Forks
  • Paper: just scraps of grey and red from my scrap pile
  • Tools: scallop & circle punch for the front apple bit, MS fench punch. oh and my trusty lil pair of fiskars scissors for cutting out the images
  • Others: bit of ribbon to tie shut as it's a bit thick when closed!

    Sorry for the long post but I had such fun making it I wanted to share it with you . . hope it put a smile on your face too :D and thanks for stopping by.

    Oh man you are so creative. Very clever idea. I love the Edward stamp. You should see the new Hugh stamp they are bringing out in September - looks very similar to Jasper (I think at least LOL). I am obsessed with Twilight.
