Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge - Edward Cullen

I did this project for the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge for this week. This week's challenge was Edward Cullen. From their site: "For the creative challenge: Create a project that focuses on Edward. For the comment portion: How do you feel about Edward's character? Is it like, love or disdain? Have you read the partial draft of Midnight Sun? What did you think about reading the story from his point of view?"

Well, I love Edward. I mean don't get me wrong, he can be way too protective and controlling at times, but I still love him in the end. I have read Midnight Sun, I loved it even more than Twilight. I liked seeing things from a more mature view, it made it easier to understand his actions throughout the book and explained some things that were left to the imagination in Twilight.

Here's the card I made and then I'll explain it...

I used the typical black, white, and red color scheme. I used the DCWV Full Moon paper because I think Edward - and any other vampire - is more comfortable after the sun goes down, it's easier to be yourself when you don't have to worry about sparkling around someone.;) I used the Paper Pizazz Red Music paper because Edward is a beautiful musician. I used the heart from the Colorbok Victorian Hearts paper because Edward is a very loving and loyal person.(and I thought the Victorian style suited him) At the bottom I stamped LION with silver pigment ink, not just because of the famous quote from the book, but also because he's described as being like the mountain lions that are his favorite meal.LOL I hope it all makes sense. I would have used a photo of Edward, but all the ones I have are cheap magazine pictures and I didn't know how I could make them look good against cardstock. Oh well. It was still fun.:) I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for looking!:)

Amber said...

Oh I'm so addicted to the Twilight Series and I tell Hubby that Edward is my boyfriend, hehe! I adore your card, great interpretation!

Gwen said...

This is very cool. I don't know much about Twighlight...didn't read any of the books. Hated the movie (worst acting ever!), even Anna was sadly disappointed by the movie. She read every book at least once, owns the set, waited in line to buy the movie and is trying deperately to get me to take her to the premiere for New Moon. She would love your card too.

My point? If I feel the way I do about Twighlight and I think your card is fabulous and well interpretted...then it must be true!


Madeleine Bouquet said...

Thanks, Amber! I'm glad you like it!:)

Gwen, thank you! I'm glad that you like the card even if you're not a Twihard.;)

It means a lot to me to know that other people like the things I make.:)
