Busy Beauties Blog Hop with The Burtonesque Dolls

If you've stopped by to see my Mo Manning Blog Hop Cards please scroll down to the next post!


Busy Beauties are releasing some marvelously macabre new images today and have asked The Burtonesque Dolls to celebrate! Their new images are inspired by the Tim Burton classic, "THE CORPSE BRIDE", and BBB illustrator Thomas Goins has really outdone himself with these amazing images! These fabulous images are right up the Dolls' alley, so we were invited along for the hop *and* are super excited to announce that Busy Beauties will be sponsoring our challenge next week too!

Check out all the hop stops for today beacause there are prizes so fab, it's freaky! Be sure to hop along and leave lots of comment love, because there are TWO Secret Beauties or Dolls along this Burtonesque inspired hop… and TWO winners will be selected from their blog comments to receive 5 (yep, FIVE) Busy Beauties images of his/her choice! So whether you are in the mood to be beauty-ful or get funky, we've got you covered.

 If you're following the hop you should have dropped in here from Rachel's blog
 
For my card I've used this fabulous marionette puppet image by Busy Beauties and a wonderful sketch by the very talented Catherine. The marionette is from a previous release but suits the new images fabulously. I did squish the sketch up a bit but all the elements are there - LOL. The DP was from some I bought a long time ago. I used my craft robo to cut the black framework on the side of my image and my nesties on the striped layer. I've cut out and toled the marionette for extra dimension - the picture on the left shows this better. I've used my black spica pen on the black details on the puppet - I just wish it showed up in photos!
The next stop on your blog hop is Barbara's blog. I hope you enjoy hopping around the world with the slightly twisted teams from Busy Beauties and The Burtonesque Dolls.
