Inspired by a Song/Movie/Book at Love to Create

Let your favourite song or movie or book inspire you this week at Love to Create! I was so inspired I made two projects to show you today! We are sponsored by The Stamping Chef and I had the pleasure of working with the image 'Jolene' - I had a bit of a brain freeze when picking an image to work with for this challenge and when I saw 'Jolene' I immediately got the song of the same name stuck in my head so that's the inspiration for that card. However, on eventually getting that song out my head, I made a card using 'Bite Me' based on the Rob Zombie track 'Living Dead Girl' or indeed any of the GOOD vampire movies... none of these sparkly vampires for me!!!
So, this is 'Bite Me' which I've coloured with Promarkers to match the brand new Graphic 45 papers 'An Eerie Tale' - this is like to feature heavily in my projects the next few months leading up to Halloween - it's slowly becoming my new favourite after Steampunk Spells! I have used tags and elements from the papers to layer up and added some black die cuts to stand out against the purple pearlescent paper I've used for layering.

And this is Jolene, also coloured with Promarkers. I have used a Kraft card blank and some more Craftwork Cards embossed kraft card for layering. The papers are from Prima's 'Believe' paper pad and I have added some faux stitching - again I got myself confused with this card and thought I was making it for a challenge elsewhere... hence the faux stitching!

I will enter 'Bite Me' into the following challenges -
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog - Lots of Layers
Eureka Stamps - Things With Wings (bats!)
Stamp and Create - Anything Goes
Stamplorations - Stamps and Die Cuts

I will enter 'Jolene' into the following challenges -
That Craft Place Challenge - Autumn
My Craft Creations - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - #31 Anything Goes

Hey, I got there in the end and two cards for the price of one today! Hope you can join our challenge this week!
Thanks for looking!
