Burtonesque Challenge

The challenge #8 this week over at the Burtonesque Dolls blog was to make a toe tag with Beetle Juice the movie as inspiration. I took this to the literal sense using the picture below of Lyida as my inspiration.
I had just gotten my fun Simply Betty stamps in the mail and of course wanted to use them. So I stamped Rio out and colored her up.
I added a little bit of diamond Stickles to the skulls on her headband and choker necklace. I also added some silver Smooch paint to the edges of her dress.
I used so gray Core'dination card stock which I crumpled and sanded and then ran through the cuttlebug with the script folder and sanded some more. I tried to give this a headstone feel but I don't really like the look of the Black Epoxy words that say Beetle Juice.
I added some red and black ribbon to the top of the headstone and I have my toe tag.
