Hello Dolly... take two

I couldn't resist doing another card for the HDH030 Hello Dolly challenge :)  Especially since a blogging buddy of mine, Melisa, sent me a couple of stamped images... with a little nudge to Goth them out a bit ;)  This one is for you, Melisa!!

I also wanted to participate in Copic Creations challenge No. 24.  I just started following this challenge blog... they have some great tips!  I chose to do Skin Tones and a Brunette Hair technique... and maybe this qualifies for the Feathering technique, too?!

Stamps:  boy w/ wagon (B-line Designs), dolly (Kraftin' Kimmie), Aged Ornaments (TAC), skull (Bombshell), unknown sentiment

Ink:  Moulin Rouge, Charcoal, & Noir Palettes, Memento Tuxedo

Other:  Copic markers

The boy image did NOT have the rusty knife in his hands originally (of course)... I drew that little twisted element myself  ;)

Don't worry, Copic Creations people... I'm working on a not-so-twisted entry, too!



So, Melisa... did it live up to your expectations? :)

This is officially one of my fave cards of yours! I LOVE all the different (and amazing!) techniques you used here! And they all blend so well together, it looks like it's all supposed to be this way! AMAZING!

Holy CRAP!!!!!! Barb you are a true artist!!! I LOVE this. You have no idea how you have made me smile today, just looking at this. I just got off the phone with the BFF to tell her about it, she loves goulish stuff too. Truely wonderful my friend!

Girlfriend you exceeded my expectations!! You know I have been to Kraftin' Kimmie's before and I don't remember any dolls like this! I need to check back with them. But knowing you, this is not what they really looked like when you bought them. What do you think the owners of B-Line would think about this one, teehee!
