A Beautiful Nightmare

Here is my submission for the second Burtonesque Dolls Challenge.

Burton Chicks. Really simple; create a card, page layout, or project with a doll, heroine, or chick that you know would belong in a Tim Burton film! Make her crazy, fun, cute, wild, but most importantly make her suitable for a Burton film!

I got a little carried away, but it was SOO much fun to make. It’s my rendition of Tim Burton & coraline meet Sugar Nellie. I know Burton was not the creator of Coraline but both movies shared a producer in common named Henry Selick.  so here it is:


This is on a 6X 6 Easel Card. Tim Burton’s Famous Black Spiral Cliff with yellow moon is popped up on dimensionals.


And a closer look at the stars of today’s card. See the button eye’s? look at the snakes in her hair. I personalized it by adding  Burtonesque on her shirt, for the dolls! Kitty’s got some bling!


Also added is Coraline’s famous flower garden. If you go to Youtube and search Spiral flowers there are plenty tutorials to teach you how to make these flowers.  A closer look:


One more pic for Tami at school adventures, she’s been wanting to see the profile of an easel card. Here you go..


I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I know it’s a totally different side of my creativity then you are used to seeing, but I have to please myself too ;) Oh, & don’t worry, I won’t be sending great aunt Elisa a card like this for her birthday!  These are strictly for me~Angela
