Zombie Time

Challenges are great if you feel like making something and don't have anything specific in mind. I've been thinking of playing along with CASology this week ever since I saw the current cue card. 

Zombies and Halloween... a perfect match. Seems more logical to me than Christmas moose, at least. (See earlier posts...) I was sure I had a great zombie digi, but it must be lost in the bowels of my computer. Then I remembered I had stamped a couple of zombies one day when I was on a playdate with Emily. I managed to wreck the first one trying to watercolour it, so used my backup all-green one. 

Love that big sentiment! But I decided to modify it to make it more zombie-specific. I coloured the outline letters of FEET with my new (!) black Wink of Stella marker, and coated EAT, the X and BRAINS! with my clear one. I went old-school and cut the right-hand side of the sentiment panel with a pair of deco scissors. I debated adding some splatters with a dark red mist (really, blood spatter is the best use of any red mists, must stop buying them) but went with this distressed patterned paper instead. I think I've kept it pretty CAS (clean and simple); I just hope it's not too PAB (plain and boring). 
And now I have way more Halloween cards than I need; but they're so much fun to make! 

Supplies: white & black cardstock, Echo Park The Apothecary Emporium patterned paper, My Favourite Things Trick or Treat stamps, My Favourite Things jellybean green & orange fizz inks, black & clear Wink of Stella markers, black Sharpie, aged mahogany distress marker, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

HAHAHA! I thought I was the only one who says "in the bowels of my computer"! #fistbump

And I've been waiting to see this sentiment for weeks! Thank you for scratching that itch.

Also, stealing "PAB (plain and boring)". I recently made one of those.
