Simply Betty Stamps - Sweet Gothic World Kids Release!

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!!

What do you think?
