Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #2

Good Tuesday morning...and we all know what time it is...time for another Burtonesque Dolls challenge....The challenge this week is to make a card that would fit into a Burton movie....we had the lovely digi's from Wild Flower Patch --Jen Shults. They were just so fun to work with. And I just couldn't stop at using one, so I had to do 2 cards...the first one is for the challenge and the second one was just because...you ever get like that? So hop on over and check out what she has available...you will so love her digi's.....they are all amazing..... I got the inspiration from Alice in Wonderland movie...and this spectacular digi just totally fit right in. She's Alice from the Wild Flower Patch. I loved the harlequin background that you see in this movie to....and my paper was actually white but I used distress inks to change the color and make it more rustic...and I am so hooked on feathers right now...I just think they add that little extra flair to a project.....so come on over and do the challenge with all of us Dolls. We would love to see how you make your challenge project.......Enjoy!!!!!! The material flower was hand dyed using tea...I cut a strip using my pinking scissors and then stitched down one side with a needle and gathered the thread to make the flower.... for this card I just had to use the hounds tooth paper from Recollections...and this darling digi Amarylis from the Wild Flower Patch. Isn't she just gorgeous!!!!! The flower on this one is actually a paper flower from Prima and I change it's color using distress inks..I used black soot and added water to the ink to make it lighter in color and was very careful when I painted the color on. I didn't want to wet the paper to much as it might rip. The layout is the same as above but with two totally different looks....so what do you say, come on over and take the challenge......well that's all I have for today....Thank you so much for stopping in and I hope you all have a wonderful week....hugs from a chilly Charm City....

Love them both Nancy, but you KNOW how I feel about Alice! ADORABLE! Also love the harlequin pattern. It's all over my living room! Beautiful cards! xxD

These are amazing, Nancy! I love the way you colore the flowers in both, and the harlequin paper for the Alice card is perfect! The B&W card is so cool - I can totally see that in a TB movie - where the scene starts B&W and as the camera zooms in, it changes to color. Fab, FAB job!!!!
