The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #5 - Sleepy Hollow

Here I am...posting twice in a day!!! I could not resist this one!! The Burtonesque Dolls are having a challenge right now using TI stamps!!! Some of my FAVORITES!!!! I think I own every single one of their Goth Cutie line. I simply cannot help myself!!

However, I decided to use Autumn Bugg as I've had her printed waiting for just the right time to use her and here it is!!
My card base is PTI's Enchanted Evening which paired SO nicely with TI's Moon Digi Designer paper. The moon is also a TI image. I colored Autumn with my Copics and sparkly Sakura pens.

I used a scrap of the TI moon DP and paper pieced Autumn's skirt for added dimension. I rounded all of the top left and bottom right corners of the card.
I matted Autumn with simple black cardstock as I really wanted a crisp look. I worked on the moon to make it glow a little eerily and then to warm it up a tad, I took my Versamark pen and colored a few of the swirls, coated them with copper embossing powder and heat set it.
I then trimmed it out, distressed the edges and added it to my card using 3-D foam squares.
My last touch was to add a Hambly rub-on owl in the bottom left hand corner. I was thinking ribbon or twine but I just didn't want to fuss it up too much. So I put him there as he would be out on our dark night.

I hope you've enjoyed and have been inspired to join The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge!

XOXO-
