6 more days to enter my BLOG CANDY!!!
So this week during my weekly blog wanderings I found a challenge blog called The Burtonesque Dolls! I can tell you right now I will SO be a regular around there! This weeks challenge was inspired by Sweeney Todd, a movie that was so compelling, maybe it was the colors and scenery, or two of my favorites actors of all time.The challenge was to create a Sweeney inspired card using decorative scissors or distressing techniques. My favorite scene happens to be when Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett are at the beach because I adored her bathing suit and the popping colors in the scene. So I started working on this card and got to play with some of my favorite goodies! The stamp is from Tiddlyinks, my paper was Core'dinations (which are awesome to distress) and American Crafts, I used my MS drippy goo punch and Tim Holtz Film ribbon.Here's a close up of my bathing beauty. The sentiment read U R A life saver, get it?!?!? You are a lifesaver! HAHA my hubby didn't get it :(And my favorite embellishment. The flowers are two white primas with black skulls. So I coloredthem with my copics and added some red glimmermist. Then I cut several strips of TH film ribbon using my razorback decorative scissors and layered them around the flowers then just to help it stand out I placed a white circle in the back.I absolutely loved working on this card, and it took a lot of time so I could get it just right! Hope you like my take on Sweeney Todd!
