Sketch Challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls

Woohoo...leave the design to us this week and follow this fun sketch provided to us by the lovely Cheri over at Graphic Cat Creations.

Your challenge this week is to create a stunning project using this sketch with a Burtonesque Flair!

It can be Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland or perhaps some about Edward Scissorhands.  The winner of this challenge will receive Simply Betty Stamps original Emo Kids, Christian and Lola rubber stamps.  Now that is an AWESOME prize!

Here is my project:

I started with the amazing sketch and decided to make it a bit dark.  The only actual color I used was red.  I found this super image of Tim Burton as Edward Scissorhands. I added some texture and shading to the layers.  I colored the candycane with Copic markers, cut it out and attached it to the main image for a pop of color.  I used an EK punch for the bat edges.  Super fun!
You will have until Dec 20th, 11:00pm to get your projects uploaded into the link.  Please check out The Burtonesque Dolls site to see what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by!
