The Pyramid stamp is a VERY old stamp
I have, not sure who made it and the sentiment
is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.

The Burtonesque Dolls

it's time to recreate a scene from
 The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Corpse Bride
or Beetlejuice. Use any images, from any company.

My immediate impulse was to make a NBC creation,
but I felt that I really should try another movie for a
change so I went with The Corpse Bride.

Damien from Simply Betty Stamps is my Victor and
Ghoulfriend from Tiddly Inks is the Bride.
The moon was made by using a Spellbinder's Nestie Circle.
I made a mask of Damien and the Moon and used Distress
Inks in Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Dusty Concord
for the night sky. The Forever stamp is a $1 Michaels stamp.
It's one of my favorite sentiment stamps.

Looking forward to seeing your creation!

Blue Crush

It's time for another
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge
and this week it's
Blue Crush.
When I think of Blue, I think of the Sea, which then leads
to mermaids. I have a TON of Sweet Pea Stamps mermaid images
so it was really hard to choose but today I decided to use the 
Beautiful Barbie by Joanne Schempp.

I colored her with Copics and kept the rest of the card
pretty simple. Some K & Co. Abrianna background
paper. Reflections flowers and a piece of Ribbon.
Can't wait to see your Creations!

Creepy and Crawly

It's Freaky Friday at Forever Night Challenges 
and today we have a Mini Dark Art Challenge!
Creepy & Crawly 
~ Create a mini art project with something creepy or something crawly or both~

The creepiest crawliest thing I can think of
is Gollum from LOTR. He just creeps me out!
So I had to use him for this challenge.

So beautiful...our precious.
Can't wait to see your CREEPIE creations.

 She is just sooo cute! I just love all the Merkids, they
have such adorable little faces. That AWESOME sentiment is from
Graphicat Designs as a FREEBIE! Thanks Cheri!

I wanted to give him a Prince Eric look, you know the Prince from 
The Little Mermaid. It would be a different story if the Prince
had decided to join the Merfolk. LOL
