Warning: Objects Are Smaller Than They Appear!


Wow, funny challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls this week... MARS ATTACKS! Create an original project inspired by the Tim Burton film Mars Attacks featuring the color green.  I have to be honest here; as much as I love Tim Burton films, I haven't ever seen this one.  I based my project SOLELY on the name.  I think that's what I'll do this weekend... rent a movie.  I know there's a free rental coupon for Blockbuster floating around this house somewhere.  LOL!

So anyway, the image I used is "Soho" from Kenny K and I thought it was cute and PERFECT for this challenge.  What I DIDN'T figure on is that the 3 inch size was going to be a challenge to color all by itself!  SHEESH!!!  If it wasn't for the fact that I had this card in mind to send off to someone, I would have enlarged it a bit to make it easier to color, but I wanted it to be an A2 size to stick in the mail.  This one was TOUGH!!!  I don't think I've ever used my pens quite so.... uh..... vertically (?) before!  HAHAHAHAHAHA! 

So lets see what YOU come up with!!!  Head over to The Burtonesque Dolls and play along with us!

***Copics Used:  E000, E00, E21, E35, E59, G21, G24, G85, N0, N9, R29, Y21 and W3
