Shake Shake Shake Senora

Note: This is my second post for today. Please scroll down or click for this week's Tiddly Inks challenge card.

Woo hoo!!! It's nearly time for the debut of The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge blog, so we're celebrating with a Blog Hop!!! And, of course, we must do it Burton style, so our theme is Beetlejuice!!! As Beetlejuice would say, IT'S SHOW TIME!!!

The fun starts on The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge blog, so be sure to start there and follow The Burtonesque Dolls trail, collecting clues along the way so that you can enter to win some amazing Blog Candy!!! And I do believe some of the Design Team members are also offering some Blog Candy, including me!!!

Leave a comment on my post and you'll be entered to win a $10 Gift Certificate to The Greeting Farm!!! Perhaps you will use some of the money to buy the digi image I used for my card... Wild Sprout Dressy Ebony, who many refer to as Alice from Twilight. I had my son use Photoshop to remove the flower from her hair before coloring her up to be... guess who... Lydia, the goth girl in Beetlejuice who could see the ghosts. Remember, she was played by Winona Ryder? In case you forgot, here's a memorable scene from the move:



Unfortunately, I'm not artistic enough to color her uniform properly, but I do think Miss Ebony bears a resemblance to Lydia... if you squint!{LOL}

The clue you need from my blog is: While alone and insane encased in his tomb

Now on you go to Margie's blog for the next clue! Good luck!!! And enjoy!!!

P.S. I just realized that my card qualifies for the current challenge at Copic Creations, which is Black Hair. And what do you know, The Greeting Farm is sponsoring! Fingers crossed!!!

How stinkin' cute!!!!! What a great take on the challenge. Love your Lydia, all in black. Isn't she one of the best characters to have fun with? I think I'm going to have to get a bunch of those character images. Never thought to dissect them in photoshop... what a great way to change 'em up! I swear, I could make cards for this movie all year long!
