The First One!!!

Ok folks... it is here! This is my first-ever design project for The Burtonesque Dolls!

Wow! What a fun design project it was too! This week's challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls is to create an original project following Cheri's AWESOME sketch (click on the link for deets)! Yah, this one was a fun one. I took this opportunity to play around with the different stitch options available on my sewing machine... boy, did I really open her up!!! hahahahahaha!

You can't really see because of the stitching, but I found the perfect Tim Holtz paper with the words "Cat" and "Girl", spicing it all up with the key and lock and I couldn't help but devote this one to Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland. I felt the "period" image (Tickled Pink Stamps, 20's Evie) was the PERFECT image for this and I LOVED trying to age everything with the monochromatic Copic coloring. Yah, this one is definitely a favorite and it's only my first one! And why not? Alice In Wonderland is my ALL-TIME favorite!!! Could it BE more perfect??? LOL!


And finally, words to live by! This really is one of the best lines ever! :)

Check out what the rest of the design team turned out and check out this week's challenge HERE... go on... give this sketch a try! It's so great!!! While you're over there, send em some love.... thems my "new" girlz!!!

That line, though... it's spoken by The White Queen in Through the Looking Glass... was it in the movie? I haven't had a chance to see it yet.
