Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #11 - Ed Wood in B&W

This week at The Burtonesque Dolls we are being sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps and we are asking you to go B&W - as in Tim Burton's classic "Ed Wood" - the movie which is the mostly true story of the legendary director of awful movies and his strange group of friends and actors. Kellie from TPS is offering the winner a fabulous prize too - 20s Evie and 30s Lylah could be winging their way to your house in all their rubber glory!

As you can see I went with whole movie theme with Lylah acting out the part of one of the director's friends or stars. I found some fabulous Bo Bunny DP in my stash that had lots of photography terms in so I framed them within a film strip. I also mounted Lylah on a backing paper that has a thin film strip running down the side. Although not strictly B&W I have tried to keep to the theme - a challenge is designed to inspire so I'm hoping a little rule breaking will be forgiven.

Now I just know the rest of the fabulous dolls will have some amazing inspiration for you - so pop over to the Dollhouse and check them out - and remember you have a chance of winning some Lil Lolita rubber by entering!
