TTIC #3 - Yep, It's Twilight Day!

Welcome to this week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge! The inspiration this week comes from our wonderful Eve!
Eve's choice for this week's inspiration piece, Edward's Meadow!!

This week's challenge was so fun - we were instructed to use the infamous meadow scene as our inspiration. Yeah, baby! This is the scene that started it all for Stephenie Meyer - her dream of a perfect vampire, in a perfect meadow, professing his love to his Bella. Here's my interpretation.

Of course, I had to include the most awesome quote from the whole series (well, except for the Volvo one!): "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb." ~Edward

"Such a stupid lamb." ~Bella

"Such a sick, masochistic lion." ~Edward

We know that Edward "dazzles" in the sunlight - literally, so I used Dazzling Diamonds and Crystal Effects to add the sparkle to the quotes and the leaves. We also learn that the forest is overwhelmingly green to Bella, so I used baby wipes on the background, and Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana classic ink (reinkers) and graduated the hues from bottom to top to create the green forest floor, to the brilliant, sunny day they spent in their perfect meadow. I varied stroke styles until I got the 'feeling' I was going for. I wish the picture did it justice - it looks very subtle, but just right in person! :)

This is so awesome! I am such a huge Twilight fan and I'm so new to card making and paper crafts but I would love to participate BUT I am curious where you are getting your quotes and such for the cards? Are they typed out or are you finding stamps?
Thanks so much,
P.S. Yep, spell it just like her, my momma named me after my dad.
