The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #6

Hello! (see me frantically waving?!)  This week's challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls is sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps.  You are to make a card/project inspired by SWEENY TODD using decorative scissors or paper distressing tools (e.g. Tim Holtz craft scratcher or distressing tool).

*******This just in!  Prize alert - LOL...  Well, that is the good part.  The winner of this weeks competition has the chance to win two (2!) Simply Betty Stamps.  You will receive Miller and Betty so go get your creep on and enter this weeks Sweeney Todd inspired fun!*******
Poor poor Ms. Lovett.  She was sooooooo in love with Mr. Sweeny Todd but it would end up being the death of her.  OH MY GAWD have you seen this movie?!!  Grossed the beejezus out of me but I was telling the other dolls I'm a pansy when it comes to gore.  I'm sure it wasn't as bad as .... ok, well it was kinda yucky!  LOL!!

This week's stamp is called "Rio" and I colored her with Copics.  I have distressed almost all of my edges with the Heidi Swapp distressing tool and added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  I used Martha Stewart's goo punch for dripping blood and colored the ends of each droplet with red Stickles and then added Glaze over top for a really nice effect.  (see more deets below)

I'm entering my card in:
Charisma Cardz Challenge - flowers
Create4fun Challenge - white, black and 1 more color (had to use green for her eyes tho)
