Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #10 - Burton Boys

This week's challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls is all about the boys - the Burton Boys! We are very lucky to have Stamp It Crazy sponsoring us this week. With their fabulous Gothic and Halloween stamps they are a match made in Heaven (or maybe that other place!!!) with The Burtonesque Dolls. When I saw the stamp we got to play with I immediately thought printed T-shirt and leather jacket - don't ask me why I have NO IDEA how my brain works - LOL - but what honest to goodness Burton Boy wouldn't have a leather jacket and ghoulish T-shirt!?!?!

I have a vague memory of seeing a card in blogland with a leather jacket that I thought I could use for inspiration - but try as I might I just couldn't find it - serves me right for not saving it when I found it the first time! Alas that meant I had to come up with my own version! It's a little hard to photograph but I hope you get the idea. I used a strip of crimped CS for the neckline of the T-shirt, my embossing folder and clear embossing powder for the "leather" and one of my Martha Stewart punches for the "zippers". Some silver pen "stitching" and silver brads for studs and it all came together. I do wonder if I should have put a few chest hairs peeking over the top of the T though - LOL. 

I used my SU markers in red, burgundy and black to colour the stamp - I wanted to add a little depth to this guy - isn't he too handsome -  in a skeleton kind of way - LOL

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DTs inspiration for you HERE.
