Burtonesque Dolls Challenge 1

Our first challenge is finally here! This week our sponsor is Beth from Stamp Insanity Stamps! Beth is offering three stamps to one lucky winner! Maddie, Lita and Nicollette will be going to one lucky participant this week! Thanks, Beth, for letting us play with your fantastic images this week!

For my card I used Nicollette. She is very sassy and fun to color. Our challenge this week was to include stripes in our project. I sort of interpreted this to mean I could implement stripes however I wanted so I cut my background paper into strips and I’m not sure if you can see it but I used The Greeting Farms Spotlight background stamp that has stripes of pattern and embossed it on the skull patterned paper with clear embossing powder.

I colored just about everything with Copics… Nicolette and the paper flowers and I seriously contemplated coloring the pearls, lol. I sponged the oval with Black Soot distress ink and then scattered some Kaiser pearls around the card. I added to strips of blue and black border and made myself leave it alone before I over did it. 😀

Here’s a detail of the coloring:

And hopefully a good shot of the embossing:
