Hello, my friends. I have a gorgeous birthday card to share with you today. I made it for my friend, Sarah. She loves all things Tim Burton, so I thought I would give one of ElenaZinskiArt's characters a bit of the Burton treatment. It's over on the PaperArtsy blog tonight for their Topic #10 (Dark to Light/Contrast)
As long as you keep the brush moving, you can dry brush them together quite nicely. A little Drying Retarder mixed with the paint will help.
Then a little alteration. As she was, Elena's character was a little too cute for the Tim Burton look. So I stamped the flower from the last release (ZA08) then stamped again on some post it tape so that I could mask it off while I stamped the girl over the top.
A little painting with some Claret and London Bus and her spotty leggings turned into over-the-knee stripy socks.
Just needed to add the sentiment, a die cut (embossed with black ink and clear embossing powder) and the perfect birthday card, for Sarah, is done.
Love and peace,
