I See Doubles!

Time for another fun Challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls
Today we challenge you to show us your double!  
Create any project, but make it double Burton and double fun!  
Just like the Tweedles! 
I had to use some fun Stampotique images
as they were just screaming to
be used in Wonderland!

As my Tweedles I used Smile
and as my Chesire I used Kitty.
By Daniel Torrente of course!
And a very appropriate sentiment.

Can't wait to see your creations!

Playing along with the Dolls

When I saw are challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls
this week: Put Me In a Burton Movie,
I immediately thought about this
really fun image by Kenny K.
Wanda Wicked just screamed Beetlejuice to me!
It must be the stripes. LOL
We all know how much Tim Burton loves those stripes.
I true Burton fan knows about the stripes. ;)
(kind of an inside TBD joke)

Anyway I just wanted to play along for the 
fun of it. So here's my card using
a slightly altered deconstructing jen
Sketch #7. Love her sketches!

Here's a closer look!
Have a great weekend!

Tim Burton at LACMA

On Tuesday June 14th I finally got to go to
exhibit at LACMA( Los Angeles County Museum of Art).
I have been waiting for almost two years since this
exhibit opened in New York at the 
This is an AMAZING collection of Tim's Art
from childhood thru today.

I was really impressed by the amount of Art work they had on display.
My husband took me and he is not as big as a TB fan as I am.
He likes his older stuff.  And he really spoiled me and bought me
The Art of Tim Burton Book, Tim Burton Neon Pencils Set and
a very expensive Lunch at the museum.

Here are a few pictures:
 The entrance to the exhibit.

Me with a Burton blow up.

If you are a fan and anywhere near California you
must see this. You have till October 31, 2011.
Have a great weekend!

Burton-weenie's Release Day!

Finally today is the day you can all jump on over to Simply Betty Stamps
and grab your favorite Burton-Weenies!  

Of course before you go you must see the last newbie... she is my Favorite!

Welcome Pipper!  She is the cutest little Miss Attitude around the Burton block! 
I wanted to use a fun cupcake sentiment but I could not
find any and I almost used this line from the Simpson's 
"Don't spit on my cupcake and call it frosting!"
maybe next time.
Be sure to come back soon as I am going to
share about my trip to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art)
TIM BURTON exhibit!!!!

Swirls of Summer

I am so excited to share with you
my very first project as a Design Team member with
Sweet Pea Stampers!
We have an fantastic challenge for 
all you Sweet Pea Stampers this week.
We want to see some Swirls of Summer on your projects!

This week we are sponsored by the awesome Crafty Purple Frog
hop over and see the amazing choice of digital decoupage!
The prize on offer this week is 3 digital sheets of your choice!!!

Good luck everyone!!!
I used one of my many favorite Sweet Pea Stamps
Coral Immersion by Ching-Chou Kuik.
She was colored with Copics and I chose to make a
round card. I layered the mint panel on top of
pleated crepe paper steamer. The swirls are
Sizzix decorative flourishes.
Thanks for looking!

Meet Harley!

Meet Harley she was born to be wild!
I went with a fun neon green and a cool leopard print.
The sentiment is from a really fun set by Stamp Camp called 
That's what she said.

Be sure to check out what the rest of TBD did!
See you back tomorrow from my favorite image and release day!

We've gone stark Raven Mad!

Not really... just wild about a new Burton-Weenie here!

Won't you help us welcome Raven!

Well since her name is Raven I just had to use 
mostly black for her, but I threw in some pink for fun!
I just love her attitude and this sentiment is just too funny.
Again I think this one is from Stamp Happy.
See you back tomorrow!

Put me in a Burton Film!

Today's sneek peak will be combined with The Burtonesque Dolls
bi-weekly challenge and we have a fun one for you!
Meet Ellenore... she is one cah-YUTIE! I love that doll of hers!
 Ellanore is dying to be put into a Burton film...
who wouldn't want to be a part of that world right?
So as you take a peek of the DT's awesome
Ellanore creations you are challenged to:
Put Me in a Burton Film!  Which means take your image,
any image and put that image in any Burton film... think Alice,
Mrs. Lovette, Lidia, PeeWee Herman, Jack Skellington...
the sky's the limit!  Just...


How much fun does that sound? to Burton-fy any image!
I am going to have to play along with you guys on this one!
Oh and I have a great idea!!!!
Here is my Ellanore, she is my second favorite Burton-weenie,
you will have to wait to see my Favorite.

I totally lifted her hair from my fellow Doll Danielle,
hers is slightly different but I just loved the look.
Thanks Danielle!
I have been using all these fun sentiments on my Burton-weenies cards,
but could not find the right one for Ellanore.
But it seems to me that this card should be something
about Love, because she is kinda holding that doll tight.
Maybe a little too tight.
See you all back tomorrow!

The Burton-Weenies have arrived!

It's sneak peek day at The Burtonesque Dolls!
We are introducing The Burton-Weenies

This line is really fun and quirky
and they just beg for some sarcastic sentiments.

who it's by. Stamp Happy I think.

Darling Diva

I have been working on this card for a few days, 
she has been colored for about 2 weeks.
And she fit the new Tiddy Inks challenge Darling Diva perfectly!
I tried to go a little outside of the square a la Angela
with my Tim Holtz Flourishes.

I colored Rose Red with my Copics and used the warm greys 

which I am really into right now. (W9 W7 W5 W3)
The fun sentiment is another Michaels $1 stamp.
This card is also for my Aunt's Birthday today.
Happy Birthday Auntie!

Thanks for stopping by!
