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.;)
