Put me in a Burton movie: The Burtonesque Dolls challenge
The theme for this piece is the Put me in a Burton movie challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls. And the stamp, Edward, is one of Lily Chilvers' newest releases at Octopode!
He's standing in what I hope is an Burtony Alice in Wonderland scene complete with a ginormous mushroom found at The Graphics Fairy.
The background turned out so beautifully with awesome texture and shine that I can't wait to try it again in a range of colors: It's a chunk of orange core'dinations embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder put through a Vagabond.
The embossed stock was then sanded and inked with spiced marmalade distress ink. Finally, the entire surface was heat embossed with clear sparkle powder.
I'm betting this is going to be a stellar technique for the winter holidays!
Let's not worry about that yet, though, since we're only now sneaking up on the 27th of June and the deadline for The Burtonesque Dolls' current challenge.
