Burtonesque Dolls Challenge

It's once again challenge time over at The Burtonesque Dolls.  This week, Monsters have taken over the Chocolate Factory! Today we challenge you to take your inspiration from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, but Moster-ize it! Maybe a new chocolate can be made? Or use colors inspired by the movie and apply it to a Gruesome image making it fun, funky and all Burton!  Our sponsor this week is Strange Skin Digis.




For my card today I have used The Mummy from The Famous Monster Collection.  This was a super quick card as there really wasn't much colouring involved.  I've incorporated some fun and funky colours into the card and added some gauze. 
Be sure to head over and check out what the other Dolls have created.:

I thought I might enter this one in the Haunted Design House challenge this week.
The challenge is to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
using items that begin with an 'E', 'M' and an 'O'.
So for my card I have

E-Embellishments
M-Mummy
O-Orange

Thanks for stopping by today.

Forbidden Treasure...

Okay it's time for Preview #5

Forbidden or not, Maxine is sure enjoying the heck out of it isn't she? Just look at her wild hair... is she not the cah-Yutest!?


I couldn't resist adding a bit of bling to this one.  If you look close at the treasure, you'll find some precious stones and pearls. 
Check out what the rest of the DT have created over at The Burtonesque Dolls.

Meet Ginger

It's day four of the Funky Pirate release over at The Burtonesque Dolls. Today's pirate is Ginger.


My day started pretty good and then I started colouring.  I guess it just wasn't my day and as a result poor Ginger is having a bit of a "bad hair day"  A little voice in my head was saying "just back away from the pens" Did I listen?  Nooo... 
Oh well...maybe tomorrow will be better.
Do head over and check out what the rest of the dolls have created.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Arrr... It's a Party!

Welcome to day three of the Funky Pirate release.  Today we have Marty to share with you. 


I thought this image would be perfect for a boy's party invite.  We all know that little boys love pirates.
The pirate hat card is another of my cutting files.  You can download it for free by clicking here. File is in svg and scut2 format.  The paper is my own digi paper.  Scroll down a couple of entries and you will find the link to download this as well.

It's a Pirate Party!

Well it's not long now until the release of the fourth Pirates of The Carribean movie, this Thursday to be exact.  Not that I'm counting down the days or anything like that....  I rarely go to the theatre, but this is one of those movies that I just have to see on the big screen. 
So on to the point of this post. We're having a Pirate party over at The Burtonesque Dolls this week.  Each day for six days we will be helping release the new Funky Pirate line from Simply Betty Stamps.

Now I know that Tim Burton had nothing to do with Pirates, but his wing man Johnny is in it so we figured that was Burton-esque enough to have a Pirate Stamping Release here! SO... that is what today's post is all about... welcome to our Pirates Sneak Peeks! We will be having five days of previews, the sixth being a preview/release for these fun Pirate images! So let's begin with:

Bonnie! She is keeping a eye out for treasure... or maybe her long lost love, what ever she's searching for she sure is stylin' isn't she? These cuties will be available in Clear Stamp.



I wanted some pirate themed paper to go with this image, and since I didn't have any in my stash, I made this set of digi papers.  You can download them for free by clicking here.  I've printed them out onto white Bazzill so they have a lovely texture.  The font I've used is Pieces of Eight which I downloaded from a font site.
Be sure you head over to The Burtonesque Dolls and see what the rest of the DT have created.
