I see double: The Burtonesque Dolls challenge

Pink, as many of my long-time readers know, is my favorite color. Followed closely by every other color, especially black (the queen mother of all colors is black, which couples oh so beautifully with a lovely Hello Kitty pink).

Anyhow, this means that I go out of my way to find ways to slip pink in here and there where it may or may not belong. And however odd or impossible this might sound, it also means I can easily see the darkness in a pink and pastel scene.

So today my entry for the Burtonesque Dolls' challenge I See Double is a homage to Mr. Burton's Edward Scissorhands: Specifically the god-awful suburban neighborhood where our friend Ed finds love and acceptance and shallowness and judgement.

We've got a lovely lady, Mary Jane from Simply Betty Stamps, in blonde and brunette with appropriately-matched outfits and backgrounds.

The card is a three-page piece with our blonde on the front and the brunette folded inside; each "flap" features stock from Die Cuts With A View Whimsical and Far East designer paper, Stampin' Up wheel stamp finished with bronze embossing powder and K&Company die cut snowflakes dug out of my Christmas bucket.

Oh yes, there's also a drop of glossy accents on the eyes of Mary Jane to ensure her eyes shine with joy!

After you finish squinting your eyes and tilting your head in an attempt to see how my project here represents Edward Scissorhands make your way over to Burtonesque Dolls to create your very own Double art!

Don't feel badly if the squinting and tilting doesn't help you see my vision. What exists in my mind continues despite the evidence ... as with everything else in my life ...
