I have something very special for you today! It's a preview for the new Simply B Collection, the Wickidz. By Artist Alexander Landish!  Alexander always seems to be able to get Bettys concepts just right!  She's a big fan of his work and so asked him to do a few things for her in his style!  A bit darker than her own normal stuff, but still cute and quirky!  It was only fitting that the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls work with the darker side of SBS. So the creepier images, the darker stuff, will be released through us. Our releases will be the last 2 days of the month, though this time around, we are starting it a day early.  SO let's get on with the show...
 Here are the first 3 Wickidz.  

Be sure to check out all The Dolls creepy projects at
And be sure to come back tomorrow for
the final three reveals!

Goth it up!

Hi and welcome to another Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge.
This time it's a Double whammy,
Alter an item by Gothing up a cute image.

I altered this little picture frame with a Gothed up image
of Alice. It's an image by Danita available from Crescendoh

So now it's your turn! What are you going to alter? 
What cute thing are you going to blacken and creep out??? We can't wait to see!

We have decided to change things up a bit. The first Tuesday of the month 
we are going to have you make any kind of project you want,
 as long as it follows the parameters of the challenge. 
The third Tuesday of the month, will be an altered item challenge...
so that means no cards, scrapbook pages, etc. 
You've gotta alter something, that falls in line with that challenge. 
Also, every once and a while, Ms. Betty Boo is going to have we Dolls 
do some very special releases for her. These will happen on the 
 last 2 days of the month. We won't have releases here every month,
 but I will tell you that March will have a release! 
So be on the lookout and spread the word!

Forever in Time

It's TIME for another Sweet Pea Stampers challenge.
We would like you to make your project vintage in some way,
 it could be Time, steam punk,  aged or just nostalgic.
 This week we are sponsored by the amazing Amy at the crafty purple frog .....
  You could win Two Sheets of images from her shop.

I used this beautiful image by Meredith Dillman, she is
on sheet 4 plate 98.  Looking forward to your creations!

Lavinia Portrait

 It's Friday and time for another
Forever Night Challenges
This week's is an Inspirational Challenge
Sponsored by the AWESOME Simply B Stamps.

I got to use Lavinia Portrait from the Steampunks line
and I just LOVE her. It was really fun to use a few of TH Distress products
all over this card. I used Distress embossing powder on the gears.
Brown chalk for the portrait background and Copics for Lavinia.
And Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the larger flower and BG papers.
At second look I really should have distressed the paper edges. Oh Well

Can't wait to see your creations!
