Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #16 - Vincent


This week at The Burtonesque Dolls we have been asked to create a card based on Tim Burton's 1982 poem and short film Vincent. The premise of the story is that young Vincent Malloy dreams of being just like Vincent Price and loses himself in macabre daydreams. I decided to use Creeper Crew Jack from The Greeting Farm to portray the imaginative Vincent. I found the background pattern on the internet and thought is was twisted enough to suit my card - LOL. A quote I also found on the internet became my sentiment - and seemed appropriate as Vincent Malloy struggles with the reality of others!

If you're needing some more inspiration don't forget to check out The Doll's amazing creations at TBD blog HERE.
