Welcome, welcome! It’s Day 2 of 3 for the Smeared & Smudged Bloody Valentine Hop. I personally hate Valentine’s Day. I think it’s a bullshit holiday, so I normally avoid it as much as possible. Now that I have kids, I need to pretend to be “in the spirit,” but, you’ll probably still catch me in green that day. ;)
Even with my distaste for V-Day, I do enjoy making cards for it. Any excuse to make a card, I guess! Here I used a Simply B Stamps image. This is a zombie Betty…which I think was available on the PCP group. I had the perfect sentiment in my head for her….
Isn’t she fab? I love how voluptuous she is! My sentiment (which I created using a Just Rite alpha stamper), reads: “I love you more than zombies love brains” and I added a “xoxo.”
So I colored my zombie with my markers, and then….I chalked over her completely. I know, I know…that scares some of you. To work so hard on coloring, to then basically hide all of the details with chalk??? But the effect was just what I needed! It made her look perfectly grungy.
I used a single spritz of Candy Apply Red Glimmer Mist (stirred, not shaken), and a mess of ink colors for a bit more distressing. I also inked up my lil’ button heart. I do wish I had a stamp of a brain though. That really would have completed this card perfectly… I may have to go on a quest.
And now it’s time for you to hop along t the rest of the Bloody Valentine Bloggers. The complete list is below. Thanks for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!
