Drunken Stampers #22 ~ Twilight and a Guest Designer!!!!!

Oh my gosh it was sooo wonderful to see everyone playing with colour and bling! You are all just inspiring!! Love it!! 🙂

We are just THRILLED this week as the challenge is to use the book series Twilight by Stephenie Meyer as your inspiration (goth or vampire inspired is fine too). Peg and I enjoy the series and can’t wait for the movie Eclipse to come out on Wednesday!!!

Now we couldn’t do this challenge without asking a friend to swing by the lounge to give us a hand!! So we have this week, a guest designer….the uber talented Lisa Strahl!!!! YIPEEE!
If you are unfamiliar with her work…she’s been artistic director at Cornish Heritage Farms Stamps, a graduate of Ranger U, a Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen Alumni member…just to name a few…and not to mention a wonderful, kind hearted, fellow Twilight FAN!!
I invite you to check out more of her work over at her blog Petite Palette.
Of course I couldn’t let her stop by without asking our fave Drunken Stamper’s Questions!!

What is your drink of choice when stamping?
Something fizzy or a big yummy coffee. My all time favorite is Starbucks “Chai Latte Soy No Water”

What or who inspires you creatively?

The same people who I first learned to stamp with are still my greatest inspiration. Each for different reasons and in different ways. They know who they are and what beautiful things we make when we create together. On a day to day basis I find inspiration in everything from movies to magazines to fabric. Nothing is safe from my gaze!

How would you describe your style?

Eclectic. I love to stamp in a variety of styles, but if you forced me to choose one, it would be vintage.

What are your top 5 stamping must haves that you could not live without?

Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger)
Coffee Archival Ink (Ranger)
Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance Ink (Tsukineko)
Non-Stick Craft Sheet (Ranger)
Heat It Craft Tool (Ranger)

And what is your fave project?

An altered dress that was inspired by the color scheme in my all time favorite paper line – The Scarlett Letter (Basic Grey). I created this project while on the Dirty Dozen Design Team @ Splitcoaststampers.

Here’s Lisa’s Twilight Inspired card:

-inspiration from New Moon @ the infamous birthday party when Bella is defending her old truck to Emmett
-A Muse stamps used, Bella, Vintage Truck, A Muse Papers and computer generated sentiment using the Twilight font
-images colored with Copics

Thanks so much Lisa for sharing and playing along with us!!

Here’s what the rest of the Drunken Stampers came up with!!!
