Greetings! I am thrilled to bring you my very first post as a Burtonesque Doll! I am totally honored to be a part of this awesome team. And what’s even cooler is that my sister Pam (you know her from Strange Skin) is on the team too!!! Isn’t that rad?!?! On to the party! Here’s the challenge: “Monsters have taken of the chocolate factory! Today we challenge you to take your inspiration from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, but Monster-ize it! Maybe a new chocolate can be made? Or use colors inspired by the movie and apply it to a gruesome image and make it fun, funky and all Burton!” Strange Skin just happens to be the sponsor this week. So I just had to use one of the Cameos. They are my favorite collection from Strange Skin. I chose to work with the Witch. ‘Cause she’s awesome! I think she’s pretty Wonka-fied, no? I colored her up with my pencils, and verrrry carefully cut her out. Then I used a wacky combination of papers and cut them out for the background. It took a long time to do all the cutting, but it was totally worth it! If you click on any of my pictures, you will be able to view them bigger. I love all of the little details on this image!See how the crescent moon becomes a piece of cheese for the rat? Brilliant! You can see here that I pop dotted the Cameo. She got a little lost laying directly on all of those patterns! The foam dots really helped break it all up. So??? Are YOU up to the challenge? I bet you are! And you really should play along…because then you have the chance at winning some Strange Skin digis for yourself! But for more Monster and Wonka love, please visit the rest of The Burtonesque Dolls!
