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!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
