Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #1 - Stripes

Welcome to the very first Burtonesque Dolls Challenge. The challenge is to use STRIPES in your design - they can be straight, wavy, diagonal or any which way you like! We have proudly been sponsored by Stamp Insanity and this fabulous image - Lita - is one of three that the challenge winner will win!

Along with Lita I've used some funky DP from my stash - I believe it's from Cherry Arte. I used my cuttlebug star embossing folder to give Lita a Rock Star background and then gave her the celebrity glitz by coating it with Dazzling Diamonds. The black ring was cut with my nesties. The swirls are made using my sizzlits die and the rose is made using Lauren Meader's Rambling Rose Cut File -check it out HERE. I've used my Craft Robo to cut out the flower layers - though I didn't use the large scallop looking piece but 2 of the largest flower pieces instead. I also just scrunched the petals rather that making the rose more formal like Lauren's. The sentiment was computer generated.

Now off you go to check out the rest of the AMAZING inspiration from the rest of the Dolls HERE. I look forward to seeing YOUR take on this fun challenge!

And congratulations #37 Carolyn -  you are my blog hop winner for the 3 Spesch Designer Digital Stamps - please email me at rdpam@hotmail.com to claim your prize. Thanx to everyone who commented, it made my day.
