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.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC600) offered 5 different color combos. I chose the first combo…smoky slate, coastal cabana & bermuda bay. Since I don’t have the actual colors, I came as close as I could using ink & Copics.

I stamped the dove, added just a little gray shading to it, masked it, then sponged on the color for the bg. I used a few Copics to deepen the color & fill in any blank spots. Cut a few layers, die cut half of the greeting & added some gray snowflakes under the layers. seasons-dove-xcu-09821
