Sleepy Hollow Layout

I found a neat blog that has some challenges and great stuff on it, so I wanted to enter the challenge for this week. The blog is The Burtonesque Dolls and you can visit it here:

The current challenge they have is to make a card/project inspired by your favorite Tim Burton film. I decided to do an 8x8 layout on Sleepy Hollow. (It was hard to choose, because I love a lot of his movies, but I think this one ranks up there as my top) I used the movie poster as inspiration to go by when making this layout. I used the George and Basic shapes cricut cart to cut the 8x8 square and the circle for the moon. The moon was cut with iradescent white paper and then inked with the Tin Holtz Black Soot. The Happy Hauntings cart was used for the tree and the headless horseman. For the tree, I cut this onto a black glitter paper, then I embossed it with the Forest Vines cuttlebug folder and then cut the edges off to fit it onto the page as I wanted. For the horseman, I cut him without the pumpkin in hand and instead welded an ax from the Paper Dolls Dress Up cart into his hand on the Gypsy. I used a lot of inking on this page with the Tim Holtz distress inks Black Soot and Antique Linen and then I also used some Martha Stewart white ink for a fog effect. In addition to the ink, I added some white chalk over the ink and the horseman at the bottom. I really like how it turned out.
