Burtonesque Dolls challenge


So this weeks challenge over at the Burtonesque dolls is to make a toe tag inspired by Beetlejuice!

I used Betty from Simply Betty stamps. Seeing as how toe tags are usually on corpse's I coloured her using grey and greens so she looks a bit, under the weather shall we say LOL

the background to the tag I created by swiping some distress ink in Walnut and Dusty Concord over my non-stick mat. I sprayed it with water and pressed the tag into it.

The vine stamp is from Stampin' Up. The little coffin is left over from Halloween and the beads and black ribbon are from an old corsage.



To finish off, here are some more pictures of my babies!! 6 altogether, out of 12 eggs, which isnt that good really! We did have 7 but his legs were disabled so unfortunately ............

Anyhow, enjoy the rest of your Sunday. England are out of the world cup (yay!!) so OH has gone to bed for a lie down after swearing that he will never watch football again - until next time LOL

:o)
