It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by 1LuvnMama and is "Black and White +1," meaning only 1 color of your choice. I was pretty stumped for ideas for a while, then I thought to try a Twilight inspired card (since I've seen so many awesome ones in blogland and just saw Eclipse recently!). I took inspiration from the cover of the book:
And here's my card:
La-La Land doesn't really have any Bella-ish images, so I just picked the one I thought was the closest - Pumpkin Lala (which is one of the few Lalas not wearing a dress).
Since I wanted her to have an apple and had to cover up the pumpkin in her lap, Lala got the world's biggest apple! lol! I just traced the pumpkin shape onto some scrap paper and modified it ever so slightly to look more like an apple. Then I used that as a pattern to cut the shape out of red cardstock. I added a white colored pencil highlight and then covered the whole thing in clear dimensional adhesive for shine.
Since the skin tones on the book cover are brownish grays, I colored Lala with the warm Gray Copics. She was then cut out and mounted on foam boosters. I cut a slit above her legs to put the apple in over the pumpkin.
For the white heart, I stamped repeatedly with a swirl from There She Goes, and then sponged a mixture of black and linen distress inks (to get a warm gray color) on the edges and also roughed it up a bit with my scissors. I dyed the seam binding with a similar mixture of distress inks and scrunched it up until dry. I put together a bunch of stuff from my stash to make the beaded head pins and poked them through the seam binding to hold them in place.
Finally, I printed a sentiment using the Twilight font (which is actually called Zephyr), cut it into a flag and glued on a tiny red heart rhinestone. I hope you like it!
