The Burtonesque Dolls: Musical Interlude

It’s time for another Burtonesque Dolls Challenge! This one is so much fun! I hope you will play along! Here’s the challenge. Musical interlude… create a card inspired by any Nightmare Before Christmas song! Make sure to put a part of the lyric as your sentiment.

I chose to use the Finale/Reprise as my inspiration. Though it was a tough choice! I fell in love with these lines:

My dearest friend, if you don’t mind

I’d like to join you by your side

Where we can gaze into the stars.

Isn’t that beautiful? I immediately thought of the Tiddly Inks image “You and Me” (hey! Alison the Witch is now available for purchase!!! You know you want her! Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click HERE!). I hadn’t used it yet, and I have been itching to. I thought it worked perfectly for these lyrics.

I gave the sweet characters a look very similar to Jack and Sally (if Jack had hair!) without being too crazy about being exact. A loose representation, really. I added the patches to my Sally.

I must say, I am quite happy with the way the coloring came out (all watercolor markers). I wasn’t sure how I was going to do Jack, so I decided to give him a pinstripe that is reversed from what it is in the movie. Aren’t they cute?

The moon and the stars I have had for,  like-ever. It’s a set from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I just love it. And the mesh stamp is from Smeared Ink’s Quoth the Raven set.

Please be sure to visit the rest of The Burtonesque Dolls to see what musically inspired projects they have created. The links are on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Wow, this creation is so much wonderful! Love the moon and the bits of background stamping that don't overfill, but instead highlight the main foreground image!

And I agree with you! Your coloring of "Jack and Sally" is stupendous!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
