It’s Burtonesque Dolls time! (Well yesterday it was!) Our theme this week is to create a Creepy Burtonesque birthday card. And we have a fabulous sponsor! Kelly of Tickled Pink Stamps is giving away THREE rubber stamps to the lucky winner of this challenge! Amazing prize!!
For my card I used Willow and I colored her with Copics. I hadn’t originally intended for this to turn out with such traditional Halloween colors but once I got her red hair finished and the black dress done it was sort of a foregone conclusion that she’s be a bit on the Halloweenish side.:)
For the layout I started with this week’s Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenge (MTSC78) and then mangled it all up so it’s not recognizable anymore but I did start there, lol. I guess technically I just tipped it on it’s side but I’m thinking that might be a stretch, lol.
After I finished coloring Willow I sponged the edges of the cardstock with Dusty Concorde Distress Ink and layered her on orange and black cardstock that had been punched with a Martha Stewart Scalloped Edge Punch. The sentiment was cut with a Nestabilies circle and Blossom die and then sponged with more Dusty Concorde ink. I added a few Prima flowers and leaves punched using a MS branch punch. The centers of the flowers are Dew Drops outlined with Gunmetal Stickles. And the last bit of detail is a bit of black and white striped tape with black Dew Drops.
Be sure to go check out the rest of the fabulous work from the Burtonesque Dolls! They’ve done a wonderful job this week!
