Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #4

Wow...two posts in one day!  I'll keep this short and to the point.

Think wedding (or divorce - eek), bridezillas, grooms with cold feet, etc., or it could just be the creepy cool color scheme from the movie - ANYTHING inspired by The Corpse Bride will do.

Here is my take on the challenge.  I used my ching-chou kuik's Rising Flame rubber stamp, purchased from Sweet Pea Stamps, and gothed her out a bit.  I tried to use colors in keeping with Tim Burton's style.  I used lace in keeping with the wedding theme and used the Viva Las Vegas Stamps' sentiment "I'm miserable without you.  It's like having you here." The sentiment is pretty self-explanatory.  I'm not entirely pleased with the DP paper I used for this.  I chose it for its color scheme, but I don't think it was the best choice for the theme.  The coloring is a bit streaky as my markers have all run dry.  Other than that, it's a fun card.  I think the sentiment totally makes it.

In case you didn't know, The Burtonesque Dolls have weekly challenges.  It's a blast playing along with them and you should check them out if you haven't already.

Thanks for Looking.
