TBD Challenge #4: The Corpse Bride

I gave up on the butterflies for the moment, and decided to play along with The Burtonesque Dolls challenge this week!  It's been awhile since I had seen Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride, so Tuesday night I popped in the ol' dvd and snuggled in with the K-9 kiddos.


I forgot that it was a musical... of which I'm not a fan... but I still liked the movie :)  The dark palette with the eerie blue moonlight... love it!  So that set the tone for my card today.

Once again, I grabbed my Haute Couture diva from The Angel Company... LOVE her.  This isn't the first time she's been a creepy bride.  Remember THIS card?! 


I created a fence with my latest border punch (another "LOVE it"!)  I used the Scor-bug to create the pickets and added a bit o' green bling... it is her wedding day after all :)


Stamps:  Haute Couture (retired TAC)
Paper:  Bazzil, white ultrasmooth & black cardstocks
Ink:  Palette Noir
Other:  EK Success edger punches, tulle, Scor-bug, misc. gems
Copics:  0, BV20, BV23, G12


I will say that the photos totally suck... she really does look awesome in person... as does the fence.  I think my camera kept focusing the damn tulle instead of the main parts of the card, so it's all fuzzy.... but you get the jist.  Thanks for a fun challenge TBD!!

I really like your use of the heart punch. Not into hearts myself, so to see it turned upside down, it looks more like spades. Me likey alot. The added bling is really nice too.

Margie said...

I remember this image from before was so very impressed with how much emotion she evoked with just her stance. I am also loving your current run of combo-ing up the border punches. Very inspirational!! Very clever card and not only do I approve but dagnabit I just like it!!! A lot!!!

Got through my first chemo with flying colors! On my way back to normality...well...ya know...
