Rio- Ed Wood Style!

I have a card to share with you that I am entering into 3 challenges. That’s a lot for me! First, The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #11, which is to create in Black and White…Ed Wood style! The second is for the Simply Betty Sketch. Yup, I just did a card for that last week (when Miss Rio was green), but you’re allowed to enter more than once, so I figured, why not? The third is for Macabre Monday over at Haunted Design House. It’s a free for all from Barb this week. And while this card isn’t as creepy as some of the other things that I make, it is a little spooky!

Rio-B&W-1

I have to say, I loved coloring Rio in black and white! I really like how her hair came out and the gradation of grays I used in her skirt. Here’s a close up.

Rio-B&W-2

She’s boo-tiful, no? I took a bit of creative license with the sketch this time around, and I am quite pleased with the finished card. I made the sentiment using my Sunset Sizzix font (yup, just used that in my Pirate layout! Did ya see it????). added a rhinestone to the Basic Grey tag, and I just had to use my MS drippy goo punch!

Rio-B&W-3

And there’s is Rio’s little bat! I wonder if he has a name…??? Enjoy your day!
