Burton-Weenies Release Day 1: JackJack

Greetings! This is going to be a super exciting week in bloggy land! Especially if you are a Simply Betty and a Burtonesque Doll fan! This week, starting today Simply Betty and her DT’s will be sharing the latest (and one of my new favorite!) collections. The Burton-Weenies! Trust me…you are going to LOVE this release!!! Today, we are starting with JackJack. Who reminds me quite a bit of Davy Havoc from AFI.

How cool is he??? He (and the rest of this collection) are a blast to color! I used the 4th Deconstructed Sketch for this card…not realizing that by the time I posted this blog, the 5th challenge would be up. But whatever. It was a great sketch and I think my finished card is cool. Here’s the sketch:
The Deconstructed Sketch No. 4
And here is a close up of JackJack.

I love his barrettes! I mimicked them with my 2 yellow paper clips (thinks to The Dolls for your suggestions!).
I am really happy with how my coloring came out. It looks a bit better in person (why oh why do my purples never photograph right?), but I think this picture sows the high and low lights pretty good.
Do you want to see more??? Of course you do! Please visit the Simply Betty Stamps blog and The Burtonesque Dolls blog for more fantastic inspiration, and links to some of the other amazing gals who are showing JackJack off today. And be sure to visit me again this week to see a new Burton-Weenie each day!
Before you go…I do have a fabulous announcement! Not only am I on The Burtonesque Dolls with Betty, but I am now a part of her Scrap Team! How rad is that?! I will be showing off Simply Betty Stamps, by way of scrapbooking. I am so excited! So be ready for way more than just cards. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!


Ooh, I love it! And I love Davy Havoc.;)

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
