Welcome to the July #2 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!
If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday July 9 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on July 10 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Sunflower Rake! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

I love this pretty little Goldfinch! After stamping & coloring him (you can tell he’s a he, because the females are a dull olive green), I masked him then used a torn mask to cover the lower part of the layer & sponged on Distress inks on the top part. Just for fun, I splattered water across it then attached the die cut curved section w/ the Mini Scroll Heart cut out of it. I added back some of the parts you usually discard & sponged the part you usually save & added it to the inside (below). The greeting is two images combined on a little label shape.



Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

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.

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.
