Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #42!!

Hi!! Welcome to Tuesday! :)

Today's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge was given to us by the lovely Erica, guest designer filling in for Margie this month! It is a AWESOME challenge!!
***Spoiler Alert, if you have not read breaking dawn proceed with caution***

"Breaking Dawn is my favorite book of the series, like many of you, so I was really trying to think about what I loved about the 4th book. Of course I love the romance, but that is throughout the whole series. One thing that I love about Breaking Dawn is how SM really looks into Jacob, especially his relationship with his new pack, especially Leah.

“It would be interesting, at the very least, and strange, too, to have Leah as a companion – as a friend. We were going to get under each other’s skin a lot, that was for sure. She wouldn’t be one to let me wallow, but I thought that was a good thing. I’d probably need someone to kick my butt now and then. But when it came right down to it, she was really the only friend who had any chance of understanding what I was going through now.” Breaking Dawn, Book 2 pg. 336

For the craft portion: Make a project using at least 2 items that you wouldn’t think normally go together. Whether it be two colors, or two different patterns or something elegant and rough, it is up to you. As far as the subject, have fun with it. Celebrate one of your unlikely friendships or an unlikely friendship in the Twilight Saga.

For the comment portion: Do you have an unlkely friendship? What makes you different but what unites you at the same time?

Here is my card. I used My edward stamp from The Greeting Farm and My wolf stamp from Artful INKables. I think I Finally got the goo be gone and colored pencils technique!! I added colored pencils to my image first THEN used a qtip without the cotton and dipped it in the goo be gone then blended that onto the colored pencil!! Yay! I feel so proud of myself :) I will keep working with it because it is SO fun!! Edward and Jake DO NOT get along at all until Breaking Dawn, even mortal enemies can be friends, maybe if everyone reads Twilight we can have world peace! Most of the friends I have had and the ones I have now have something in common so I cant say I have had an unlikely friendships.

Stamps Used: Into the Moonlight- Artful INKables, Edward-Wild Sprout-The Greeting farm, My Vampire...-Unity Stamp Company
Papers Used: White, dark chocolate-PTI, June bug, recess-BasicGrey
