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
