Day 3 of Simply Betty's Burton Weenies: Ellenore

Are you loving the Burton Weenie release from Simply Betty Stamps as much as me? I know I will be using these images all the time! Today we are showing off Ellenore. And in addition to this preview, we Burtonesque Dolls have a new challenge for you!
Put Me in a Burton Film! Which means take your image, any image and put that image in any Burton film... think Alice, Mrs. Lovette, Lidia, PeeWee Herman, Jack Skellington... the sky's the limit! Just...
PUT ME IN A BURTON MOVIE!

I decided to make Elenore a wicked Alice. She is holding a voodoo doll, but I gave it ears to make it look like a bunny. Here's my card.


I have to say, one of the best thing about these new digis is that I am so inspired to color them in many different ways. I love using super bright color combinations on them, but I know they will look just as rad in dark, gothic colors.

See the bunny ears? I also wrote in "Curiouser & Curiouser." Also from Alice in Wonderland, of course! I used a few papers, a bunch of mis-matchy buttons, and I stapled some glittery spiderweb ribbon to goth it up just a wee bit.


The Burton Weenies will all be available for purchase starting on Friday at Simply Betty Stamps. We have a few more images in this collection to share with you, and I know you will want them all! Tomorrow, I will be previewing the next Burton Weenie in a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. So please come back for a visit! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Hey Girl..... been catching up in my reader! Thanks so much for your thoughts, prayers and comments...they really mean a lot.

Now your card is just too stinkin' awesome. I LOVE that green hair! I try not to look too close at these new digis because I've got so many that have yet to see ink but these are right up my alley.
Isn't it fun how some images make us step outside the 'norm' and help us grow in our crafting...
Wonderful card!!! hugs

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!
