I've Created a Monster!!! :)

It all started when I made three Twilight bookmarks for some of my online book buddies - since then I've had orders for EIGHT more!!!! YIKES!!!

These two are going to my buddies Judy and Mary. Mary went to the Vampire Baseball event in Portland and actually got to PLAY on the field with cast and crew ---- can you believe it!!!! We were all jealous!!!! :)

Anyway, the first started with a black bazzill base, layered with red bazzill. The image is from Artful Inkables Into the Moonlight which is stamped in Jet Black Stazon on watercolour paper. I've used Real Red and Mellow Moss ink and a light grey marker to colour it in and then cut it out using the Small Oval Nestabilities and matted in black using the Large Oval Nestabilities. Across the bottom I've stamped the flourish from Fictionally Inspired and then added the Team Edward (from the same set) which was cut out using the Label 4 Nestabilities. Finished off by adding some red satin ribbon.

The second one started with a base of white and layered with red bazzill. I then cut two squares using the Square Nestabilities - one white, one black. I then stamped Vampire Baseball from Fictionally Inspired in Jet Black Stazon across the middle and punched the corners out for the bases. Then I stamped the baseball bat and ball from Into the Moonlight and cut it out, adding a little bit of red to it and glueing it to the bottom. I finished off by adding the Team Edward sentiment again in Jet Black Stazon, pierced the corners (don't know if you can see that in the picture though), and attaching some black satin ribbon.

Hope the girls like them!!! That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!! :)
