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!
