Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS399) asks us to spook out the gallery w/ a Halloween card. I think these Zombie images are pretty darn spooky! And fitting..since they film The Walking Dead in my area. So far, I’m just not seeing a way out for those non-zombie folks. But it does remind me of a joke I read…”if the zombie apocalypse ever happens, I’m going to Costco..they have concrete walls, years of supplies & you have to have a membership card to get in”. Yep..that’s where I’m heading!
I picture  these zombies as kind of greenish gray so that’s how I colored this Zombie Gal. Since the background is also a shadowy gray, I wanted some color so I added the orange to her shirt & the spooky moon (which was stamped separately & fussy cut). The bg was sponged in using the pumice ink & a cloud stencil I made using a piece of acetate (from a piece of packaging) & a pair of scallop scissors. I made it out of the plastic because I wanted it to hold up & also so I could wipe it off. Since it was made years ago, so far, so good! I used the same ink to stamp the grass. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

This is for Saturday’s Inspiration Challenge (IC564) on Splitcoast. I didn’t have time to get it finished & uploaded yesterday, so I’m a little late. Audrie also asked us to do something “different” than we usually do. Though this is the second time this week I’ve used these creepy zombies, it’s not my usual style to make cards that are definitely on the creepy side.  ghoultimes-portrait-09735
I stamped all the zombies, colored them, then fussy cut them. I had this little white window type frame left over from something & liked how they fit in it, so I stamped the greeting, added a sage green layer (it kind of matches their skin, don’t you think?) & a larger black layer. The black layer has a barbed wire fence embossed across it & the bottom edge was punched w/ a drippy goo punch.  I think this family was probably a lot more attractive before the “ghoul times”, lol.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT602) wants us to use Feet in recognition the reference to Hobbit feet in Tolkien’s The Hobbit. One of the first things I noticed on this zombie image was the feet on the left zombie. The second thing I noticed was the other zombie has no feet..actually no lower body, lol.  And since it’s nearing Halloween & the filming for the TV series The Walking Dead is filmed in my area, I thought this card would be fitting.
The zombies were stamped on gray card stock (using my Misti) & colored w/ Prismacolor pencils. I stamped them again to bring back the details I tend to lose when using Prismas, then masked them & stamped the graveyard border behind them & the greeting below. Again, I used Prismas to add the shadows & a white gel pen to add the highlights on the headstones. Prismas were also used to add the moon & clouds & go over the panel edge.

Here’s a look at the inside.
