Celebrating A Little Nightmare Before Halloween!

Hello All!! So hopefully you have been visiting me and the other Burtonesque Dolls to see the new releases from Simply Betty Stamps.  If you haven’t been, what have you been doing instead?! What’s more important than this!? Goodness!! hehe

Today I would like to help welcome to the stamping world Ellanore!!!

Now she doesn’t usually dress up like Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, but this occasion was special! Along with the release of these stamps, we needed to do a challenge today.  The challenge was to take Ellanore and dress her up like one of Burtons leading ladies.  I chose Sally, cause well, Sally is great!!

I used this really great, super skinny ball point pen and drew in the stitches and patterns all over her.  I also used the pen to draw the Jack in the background. 

I colored her in with colored pencils.  I never use colored pencils, but I think that they worked out pretty well for this project!!

Who’s your favorite Burton leading lady? Maybe next time you have a project you need to make, you can Burton-ize it too!

Make sure to check out http://theburtonesquedolls.blogspot.com/ to see all the other Dolls projects, and make sure you go and buy these stamps at Simply Betty Stamps on Friday!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day today and happy crafting!
