Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #6 - Final Cut...And Shave


This week's challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls is called "Final Cut...And Shave" You need to create a card/project inspired by the movie Sweeney Todd and use decorative scissors or paper distressing tools somewhere on your creation. Our sponsor this week is Simply Betty Stamps with the new range of My Kids Emo World stamps - perfect for Burtonesque and they are INSTORE now - woohooo.

I've used Miller here - and given him a Sweeney Todd hair dye job - LOL.

I used the photo from the DVD as my inspiration for the colour scheme - B&W with slashes of red. The scaredy cat and barber sign were cut using my craft robo. the DP is from My Mind's Eye and I was really lucky to find a shaving cream charm on my travels last week - I was actually looking for a scissor charm but they had sold out! Now I'm not sure who - if anyone - I'll be giving this card to but I must admit it was worth the effort just for the fun I had! It's nice to explore my dark side at times - LOL.

Don't forget to pop over to The Burtonesque Dolls Blog HERE and see what the other Dolls have done to inspire you to explore your dark side!
