Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #22

Happy Sunday and welcome to another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal!

The cupcakes this week had a mysterious and elegant feel to them, and the color scheme made me think of the Twilight book covers. So, I popped in my Twilight DVD and decided to be inspired by it!

For the main image, I of course had to use The Greeting Farm's Edward, everyone's favorite vampire! I used Copics to color him in, then painted his face and arms with Opal Shimmerz. The photo didn't pick it up, but he is perfectly sparkly, as if he were standing in the sun! I finished off the main image panel with a frame of black stones from the Zva Creative Mixed Rhinestones Wheel.

Now for the background - I know spiderwebs have nothing to do with vampires, but because of the embossing on the cupcake, I knew I wanted to do some embossing on the card and I thought the Cuttlebug Spiderweb folder added to the spooky and mysterious theme! I flipped the embossed piece over, so the debossed side is actually facing out, and then traced all of the lines with a clear Sakura Stardust pen. I thought the card still needed a little something, so I just added some white SU grosgrain and a SU buckle to finish it off.

If you'd like to play along, add a direct link to your project to the Mr. Linky widget on Rachel's post. The top 5 entries will be featured in next Sunday's collage.

Now before I send you off to check out the other HSE Sweeties' creations, I want to extend a warm welcome to the latest Guest Sweetie, Anna Fiebelkorn. Be sure to visit her fabulous blog to see her interpretation of this week's challenge.
