TTIC # 42 - Unlikely Friendship

This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge was chosen by our
Guest Designer Erica...

Erica has been doing a fantastic job filling in for Margie (she has been taking a break for a couple of weeks while she moves house) and we are so very grateful to Erica as she has jumped in the deep end and is coming up with some amazing projects, this weeks theme being no exception... This week the lovely Erica has picked....drum roll please...

"Unlikely Friendship"

Erica writes..." Breaking Dawn is my favourite 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 Stephenie Meyer 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, Jacob Black, Book 2. pg 336

Craft Portion: Make a project using at least 2 items that you wouldn't think normally go together. Whether it be two colours, 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.

Comment Portion: Do you have an unlikely friendship? What makes you different but what unites you at the same time?

Ok, when I first read what Erica wanted us to do this week I thought, yeah I can do this...This will be a piece of cake...WRONG! Do you know how hard it is for someone like me who has to have everything matching to not have everything matching?...OME! I actually found this challenge a little on the hard side...I was stumped...What was I going to make?! So I am afraid I took the easy way out...I cheated a bit.... ok, well a lot... I literary took Erica's words and put my own spin on it...Elegant and Rough....

Ok...Yes I know..But look at it from where I am sitting...The rough bit is the Felt Flower Pattern and the elegant is the ribbon... I can't help it, I cannot for the life of me put two opposing pieces of DP together on the same page...It's just wrong!

And just to try and justify it a little bit more...I deliberately coloured her dress in a colour that I normally wouldn't use with the DP I chose.
Yeah I know...You don't have to tell me....

Paper: Basic Grey, Bazzill
Stamps: Gorjuss - Just a Girl, Hero Arts.
Ink: Versamark-Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Walnut
Accessories: Ribbon, Kaiser Felt Flowers, Brads
Technique: Distressing and Pencils-Derwent

So for the comment portion of this challenge...btw, much easier.. This card is actually for someone who has become very dear to me...And we have never actually met face to face.
In fact I have several friends that have become so very dear to me that I have never met....And you all know who you are. I don't feel like that this friendship that I have with these lovely ladies is what you call unlikely..Just something that I have never experienced before...And something that I will always treasure...To these wonderfully, talented, generous, amazing, awe-inspiring, incredible, stunning ladies...Even though I am half a world away and we have a computer to thank for this "unlikely" friendship I wanted to say Thank you..Thank you for your support, friendship and for being who you are because without you my life would be just mediocre...
