Coffee of the Day - Highland Grog (tastes like pecan praline or butter pecan - yum!!!)
We have a new challenge starting up over at Oddball Art Stamps - create a Spring or Easter themed project. well everyone on the DT had the option of going cute or zombie. go ahead - guess my choice? it wasn't too hard was it? nope, didn't think so. zombie will win over cute any day, especially with Lizzy's fabulous images!!! just wait until you see my card...... I LOVE IT!!! actually so did Dave. he laughed and laughed!
I combined several of Lizzy's images - Zombie Big Eye Girl & Bunny and the matching Zombie Easter Basket. every bunny needs a basket, right? the basket was printed twice, with the 2nd one popped up on foam tape. the eyeballs were covered with crystal effects to give them an even shinier, slimier appearance! the sentiment is one I came up with on my own and then printed out on the computer.
papers are from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection, flower is Prima, ribbon is May Arts, flourish piece is from a Cheery Lynn die, main image was cut with a die from MFT, while senti was cut with a Spellbinders die. buttons, sequins, and faux stitching complete the card. oh yes, our little bunny has a fluffy stickles tail!
to help add to the 'zombie' feel, I first painted the image as usual, then gave the figures & basket a light wash with grey ink to help 'muddy' them a bit. rather than add more healthy tones to her skin, I used greys & tans to highlight. kinda hard for the undead to have pink undertones to their skin! grins!
