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!


LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! It's awesome!!! I got Alison the Witch last night!!!

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!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
