Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #7

I drew this little girl from the Corspe Bride, coloured her with copics and promarkers and you can't see but glittered her up with the orange peel stickles and added some pewter liquid pearls for her buttons on her dress.  She is for the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #7 Creepy Birthday to You.

I wrote have a bone-afide good time and used tattered rose over it (I know looks pretty bad but I am still trying to get used to distressing.  The bone behind the girl was a glitter sheet that I sprayed with the slate glimmer mist and I added a little bonafide tag to the side.  The flowers are prima (I think, they came in a  lovely jar) and a wild orchid flower in the middle.

A bow tied at the bottom and a cat charm.  Shockingly bad entry, but alas again my little ones have picked up another viral infection my poor 5 year old is covered from head to toe in a rash and he couldn't swallow.  He didn't eat anything from friday afternoon until late this morning.


Anyway now that the excuses are over about how poor my cardmaking skills are hehe I am being attacked by my one year old who is needing some attention.
