Just a Lonely Zombie

It has been over a month since I created anything, mainly because I was going through radiation for the breast cancer I had. Now that it is over and my everyday isn't being interrupted by having to go to radiation I feel I have the time and the frame of mind to be creative again!

So for my 1st project since being done with radiation I created this card for Halloween. I know, your thinking Halloween in May? Yes, I'm always thinking ahead to the next Halloween. While browsing through some of the blogs I follow I came across Airless Chambers which is another Rick St. Dennis (who has amazing digital stamps) blog. They were offering a FREE Singing Zombie digital stamp, plus a challenge to use that digital stamp in the currant challenge. I jumped on it and started on my creation.

I first started looking at some images of The Walking Dead zombies to determine how I wanted to color my zombie. Then since this is suppose to be a singing zombie I decided to search the Internet for songs about zombies and came across a couple I liked. I decided to use "The Zombie Song" as my muse. Then I just started pulling out things from my stash to finalize my card.

I used these items to create my card:
  • Singing Zombie FREE digital stamp
  • sponged white, brown and green ink on the zombie
  • Sharpie markers - hair, eyes, mouth, exposed body parts and background
  • red pen - blood shot part of the eyes
  • Glossy Accents - eyes, mouth and exposed body parts
  • Design Studio - weld ZOMBIE
  • Alphalicious Cricut cartridge - font
  • Brain from Creepy Glowbugg which I attached it to a skewer (painted silver) to look like a microphone
  • misc. ribbon
  • Studio 112 adhesive gems

On the inside I used these items:
  • computer generated sentiment
  • Martha Stewart Goo edge punch

I am entering this card in the following challenges and linky party:
