July's Twilight Tuesday Sketch

I'm new to the Twilight Tuesday challenges but decided to dive right in.

This was a very interesting sketch. My inspiration was, obviously, Bella's truck, but I brought in her friendship for Jacob -- thus the nickname "Wolf Girl." I thought the truck would fit in the three-panel section; however I discovered that it was too big for a standard A2 card. I had some stray envelopes and found a slightly larger one into which a big-enough card would fit. (As an aside, I try to make cards that will fit in envelopes that I have gathered so that I will be able to mail them neatly.)

I colored the truck with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and then cut the panel into three sections, matting them in Real Red. In keeping with the Twilight colors, I used some Basic Gray DSP for the background. I stamped the sentiment in a punched square for the piece at the top right.

* Stamps - Into the Moonlight and Fictionally Inspired by Artful Inkables
* Ink - Palette Noir Black
* Paper - Basic Black, Real Red, GP White, Basic Gray DSP
* Accessories - Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, Square punches
