Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #9 and P3 Challenge

Happy Tuesday. Well we all know what today brings. A couple of challenges that I'm in and one of them is in the dollhouse--TBD with all of the dolls. This week was such a fun week for the challenge that I actually ended up making 2 separate pieces. This week is about Tim Burton's Vampire movie. Well theoretically speaking. If Burton were to make a vampire Movie... what would the poster board look like? Create a project for an Upcoming Burton Vampire Movie! Now how fun is this. We got to use the darling digi's from Simply Betty Stamps. Aren't they just adorable. So below is what I ended up with for the challenge.....Enjoy!!!!!

It all started with a box that actually ended up made into a bag. I was going to use the side of the bag for my poster board. So as I'm making this box into a bag, I was searching for some sort of theme for this vampire movie. And low and behold I came across my bed stamp from Starving Artist--Doodle Factory. I knew exactly what I wanted my poster to be. "IN-Da-Bedroom"....lol....anyways to make a long story short, I thought this would be such a cool thing to do for DH. You know what I mean....So I made a lighted poster board/invite (on back--not finished...sorry) and a little bag to add goodies for him....it turned out cutesy (buy hey not all vampire movies have to be bloody...right)..I ran across a movie that is called Date Night on the net while searching for ideas--And I really wanted Vampire's in the name some how, so I thought why not make these guys Trixie and Louie Vampire (which these are their digi stamp's name in the store)..make it funny/quirky and weird---like---Married with Children-- sitcom..... and I thought with the black stripes it would show Burton's style. This could possibly be a total new direction Burton could think of going...lol...so what do you think? Think DH will like this?

Here's the poster board. It was actually simple with the exception of those darn lights ( I used 3-d pop dots with the exception of the center one...those were the smaller ones and they just didn't want to hold it). That center one, man...it just doesn't want to stay up. I got the lights from Wal-Mart in the wedding isle. Just little ones you can string on ribbon.They can be twisted to turn them on or off...and even using the 3-d pop dots the lights can actually be removed.... I added some Tim Holtz film for them to stand on and to give it some more dimension. The finished size of the poster board ended up being 8 1/4" X 5 3/4" . I know, it's an odd ball size...no rhyme or reason... this is with the lights on. They do a pretty good job only using 3 little ones. And here's my shopping bag. I made them the same with exception to the curtains and lights. The measurements are 9"H X 5" length X 2 1/2" wide....so it turned out to be a nice sized bag...I also used Tim Holtz filmstrip for the handles. this is just a side view..... I'm also entering this sweet little bag into the challenge over at Paper Cubed--June --some type of treat container....well who says treats have to come out of the grocery store....lol.....they could come from Fredericks....or Macy's....or Victoria Secret's...or even that darn ol 24 hr place down the road....lol....you know the one I'm talking about......just kidding...anyway here's what I made......I really like this challenge blog that I happened upon....I can't wait to play some more with their challenges...... Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to stop by the dollhouse--TBD blog and check out with the other dolls made.... play along this week. And run right over to Simply Betty Stamps . She has some really cools stamps and digi's. .....But make sure you come back and check out who won my blog candy that's posted below and for the PTW Challenge. If you haven't heard about PTW, then just pop over to the blog and check out the challenges. They are really fun. Hope to see you then....Hugs from Charm City
