Monday Funday #7 - Twilight challenge

Yea, like we were going to let Breaking Dawn pass without a Twilight inspired challenge.  Today's Farm Fresh Monday Funday challenge is to use red, black, white and/or silver.  If you have any of the Wild Sprouts, pull them out and make them shine! 
The base is Cherry Cobbler with layers of Very Vanilla and designer papers from Paper Studio and Recollections.  The card design is based on Mojo Monday 210.  The border is Martha Stewart's drippy goo punch.  The checkered ribbon reminds me of Breaking Dawn chess pieces and was purchased at Michael's, then topped with a black pearl.  The image is Wild Sprout Logan, colored in copics, then a clear Spica pen was rubbed over his face to give a little sparkle.  I gave him a cloak to make him the Volturi guard member Demetri.  To make the cloak, I used a piece of post-it not to cover the lower half of Logan to create a mask.  Next, ink the stamp with Whisper White craft ink, remove mask, and stamp on Basic Black.  I used a white gel pen to finish the robe and went over the lines of the hood to darken.  Next, I used a craft knife to cut out the face, trimming the outline of the robe with scissors.  Then, I used a glue pen to attach over the top of the colored image.  There you have it, a Volturi robe-clad character.  The sentiment is stamped with a Studio g dollar alphabet stamp on Very Vanilla and the quote is from New Moon.  A few pearls on the bottom right corner, finish the card.
Now, it's your turn.  What Twi-inspired piece can you create?  Thanks for looking! April
