Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #3 - Burton Elements


This week The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge has been sponsored by one of my favourite stamp companies - Tickled Pink Stamps! The fact that owner Kellie is a good friend and I'm on her DT doesn't mean I'm biased at all - LOL - and it's GREAT to have fun with 2 of my DTs at the same time!

The challenge this week is to use "Burton Elements" - black flowers and skulls.

I've used the fabulous Ivy from Tickled Pink Stamps and have paired her with some DP I bought from Kristy's Delicious Papercrafting Store - she has a FABULOUS range of paper pads - this one is Bayberry Cottage by Pink Paislee (oops I originally said Queen Bee - thanx for the correction Kristy - LOL). The skull charm and doily are from the TPS store. I made the black flower using my Lauren Meader rose cut file - it's actually made using alternating layers of black and grey - and the grey petals have been sponged with black. I found using just black CS didn't give enough depth to the flower - it just looked a bit like a black ball - LOL.

The other Pink Ladies have been invited to be guests for this challenge so there's bound to be an AMAZING array of fabulous creations with BOTH these fabulous DTs working to inspire you! So don't forget to pop pop on over to The Burtonesque Dolls Blog AND the Tickled Pink Stamps Blog  and check everything out!

Hope you get a chance to join in too!
