Burton Weenies Sneak Peek #5: Harley

I’m not talking about motorcycles here! It’s time for the latest sneak peek of Simply Betty Stamps’ Burton Weenies collection! Say hello to Harley…

This chick’s got some spunk! She looks like the snarkiest of the bunch, in my opinion. I colored Harley with my watercolor markers (her piercings were done with a metallic pen). I gave my card a collage feel. I wanted it to be a little wacky and all over the place. I think it’s pretty cool!

Don’tcha just love her outfit? And her hair is really cool…although, yellow and orange are probably the only 2 colors I haven’t had myself. The “whatever” is from Smeared Ink.

Here you can see her metallic piercings a bit better. You can click on any of my photos to get a bigger view. Coloring tip: I used a pale blue where the white stripes are (for a shadow) to give the white some dimension. You can also use grey in the same manner.

I really enjoyed using the various doo-dads on this card. If I had a wee bit more time…I probably would have added some more.

One more day! Only one more day until YOU can own the Burton Weenies for yourself! Be sure to visit The Burtonesque Dolls to see more amazing creations featuring Harley (and the rest of the Burton Weenies).  Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
