Surprise! Simply Betty has a houseful of birthdays this month, so she wanted to release a new par-tay line of images! Que Sweet Gothic World Kids :)
Betty has commissioned a new artist for this release... you can find out more by going to the Simply Betty Challenge blog. Until then, here is the whole line:
Judy, Sally, Wednesday, Tilly, Alex, and Scott
Cute, right? But, if you will notice the touch o' Gothiness... skully party hat, batty balloon, skully barrettes, faces with attitude... my kinda cute.
I decided to work with Wednesday & Alex... for obvious reasons :) There are so many snarky sentiments that I will be able to pair with these two, no?!
I tried to make the top of her dress/sleeves & a bit of her tulle skirt look sheer... did it work? I probably should have darkened them up just a wee bit more. And I do NOT like how her hair turned out. Practice practice practice... ugh.
For Wednesday, I tried a darker skin tone than I normally use... kinda Latina-ish, maybe? I need more practice with it because the blush is DEFINITELY off. The sentiment is PERFECT for this card... just sayin' :) It's one by The Angel Company called Great Greetings.
Next up, Alex:
The look on his face cracks me up. :) Not really in the party mode, me thinks. How do you like the sentiment? It should be read with very little gusto... and perhaps a tinge of annoyance. :)
And isn't it nice that he is color coordinated with his giftie? :)
I decided to go through my embellishments and try to use some oldies but goodies. I have a tough time with guy cards... no ribbon or foof... so these Karen Foster brads & the Scor-Bug did the trick.
Well, that's it for today. I've been so tired lately, so these aren't the most fantabulous of cards, but I don't hide much from you guys :) Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's wonderful work over at the SBC blog!!
