It’s yet another big day in Bloggyland for me today! Not only is it Day 4 in the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, but it’s also the day that I announce the next theme for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop (on the Bombshell Blog) and, it’s time for a new Challenge Blog! Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls. This is The Burtonesque Dolls version 2.0. So let’s get goin’!
I gave you a sneak peek at my Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls project on October 1st. I had combined it with the latest Desert Island Crafter’s Challenge. The challenge at BBD is to create something inspired by your favorite Halloween movie or memory. This was a tough one for me, because I have so much to chose from!
Can you guess what movie this represents? The quote at the bottom of my card says, “Once in a purple moon, there is a special witch who shines above the rest.” Did you get it now???
It’s a quote from The Worst Witch, which starred Tim Curry and Fairuza Balk (among other very famous folk). This flick came out in 1986, and I still love it very much to this day. It’s a kid’s movie, but it’s wonderful! I highly recommend it!
This beautiful Sweet Pea Stamps image was colored with Twinkle H20’s, and a wee bit of my watercolor markers. Check out how it shines…
I love this image! And my Twinkles!And The Worst Witch!
For my second offering of the day, I have a card that was created by using the 21st Deconstructed Sketch. Here’s the sketch.
And my card….which was really simple, but I love.
Eye see you! This eyeball is one of my most favorite stamps to work with right now. It’s from Inkandinkado, and was only a buck!
Seriously, isn’t it cool? I colored it in just a little with my pencils. And I of course had to use 2 layers of that a-maze-ing Drippy Goo Punch from you-know-who.
For the lines coming from behind the eyeball, I made a point at about where the center of the eye was going to be glued, then I used a ruler and a Stardust pen (Sakura) to draw the lines. I love the sparkle!
I am going to be entering both of these cards into the Forever Night Challenges too. This is a great new blog for you fans of the creepy! 🙂
