Burtonesque Challenge #5

The challenge this week at the http://theburtonesquedolls.blogspot.com/ is a sleepy hollow inspired scene.  I couldn't for the life of me think of a card to make other than halloween so I decided to do a little wall hanging scene.  I didn't have much time to do it as I left it until tonight to try and after I got the housework done when the kids were in bed I only had an hour or so to cart all of my craft stuff out of the garage etc etc.

Anyway I painted the girl on the scene using the dress from the promo pics for inspiration.  Not the greatest thing I have ever done but my hands are all inky and I am really really tired and didn't have the energy to make the scenery a bit better, would have loved to put a crow and some pumpkins.  I might add them later but the challenge finishes tomorrow so......

I always feel guilty when I have to throw out cardboard boxes so I used this to paint on, crazy hmm. Anyway I am off to the land of nod, my three year old has her nusery production tomorrow and I want to be able to enjoy it without yawning through tiredness.  zzzzzzzzzz
