Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #14 - A Victorian Burton Babe


This week at The Burtonesque Dolls we are asking you to showcase one of the female characters from a Burton Movie. We are being sponsored this week by Simply Betty Stamps and the new range of Victorian Beauties. These fabulous images aren't being released until Friday, August 6th when the SBS and TBD DT's are coming together for a blog hop - we can't wait! In the meantime you get to have a sneak peek at these beauties with this challenge.

I've used the gorgeous Darcy here. I thought she reminded me a lot of Sweeney Todd's fair daughter Johanna who is brought up by Todd's arch enemy. She yearns for freedom which I've symbolised with the gate and key!

The gate was cut using my craft robo while the black cat is a laser die cut from Scrapmatts. The mesh ribbon and gold key charm are from Tickled Pink Stamps. I also used 2 new toys that I got for my birthday - my Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder and my MFT Die-Namics rolled flower die. The DP is from the Kaisercraft Le Chateau paper pad - I've been using this one a lot lately - I LOVE browns with blues!

Don't forget to pop over the The Dollhouse and check out what the rest of the dolls have come up with to inspire you.
