I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for the new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge, and the second is for the new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. Let’s get down to it! Dysto..what? A dystopia (from the Greek δυσ- and τόπος, alternatively, cacotopia, kakotopia, cackotopia, or anti-utopia) is the vision of a society that is the opposite of utopia. A dystopian society is often a planned structured society in which the conditions of life are deliberately made miserable, characterized by poverty, oppression, violence, disease, scarcity, and/or pollution for the benefit of a select minority or some unnatural societal goal. Sounds simple when it’s put like that lol! There are loads of Dystopian Films for you to choose from, so many in fact you’ll be spoilt for choice. You’ve got two weeks to play along with our challenge. I do hope you’ll join us! I was inspired by The Matrix. Haven’t seen the movie in years, but I do really enjoy that flick! As you can see, I tried to mimic the repeating numerical lines that you see in all of the ads, and in the movie. I used Dominatrix from Smeared Ink’s Femdom collection. She reminded me of Trinity. A dirty Trinity. One of her lines in the movie is “Dodge this.” which I thought was totally perfect for this whip wielding version of Trinity. By the way, this is an ATC…kinda hard to tell I suppose. I don’t do many ATC’s and I’d like to. This was a good oppurtunity for one. On to the latest DICC! Our very own Jenn came up with this Itinerary. And I wanted to use the newest of Simply Betty Stamps’ Zombie Teen Christmas collection, Jinglin’ Jessi. First here’s the list. Jenn Borjeson’s Itinerary 1. Wings 2. Ribbon 3. Buttons 4. Black & White 5. Clouds 6. Trees 7. 3 or more Patterned Papers 8. Polka Dots 9. Embossing 10. Fussy Cutting. I used numbers 2, 6, 7, 8 and 9 for my Jinglin’ Jessi card. She’s a happy little zombie, ain’t she? She’s ready to start decorating for the holidays! I colored her with my watercolor markers. And I have to say, I was a bit worried about how the tree was going to come out, but I am really happy with it! It’s hard to tell, but the Make Merry is embossed with holographic glitter. It’s super sparkly! So there you have it. Two fun new challenges that I hope you will participate in. You have 2 weeks for each of them. So head on over to the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog, and the DICC blog for all of the deets. Plus, be sure to hit the SBS Blog too! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
