Macabre Monday #35: Walking Dead Divas

YES!!!!!!!! FINALLY! I get to play along with Macabre Monday again! The weeks have been flying by, and Barb has had some awesome challenges… and I SO wanted to play along… Alas, my time escaped me. The ideas were there, but the clock tick tocked too quickly for me… But not this time!!!

Here’s Barb’s challenge:

Ok, my little pretties... your challenge this week:

Walking Dead Divas

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using images/sentiments of o-so-girly zombies!!  Blingy, pink, flowery (or not)... let's see those ladies of the day & night...

uh... I meant that in a totally non-hooker type of way ;)

Cool! Got it! Here’s what I created…

How cool is this chick??? She’s from Stamp It Crazy, and I love her. She reminds me a lot of my sisters and I… her hair, her clothes, ok… not her skin so much, but get the idea. Here’s a closeup:

I used colored pencils and some various Sakura markers to color this diva in. The “Princess” is made from a (gasp!) Martha Stewart alpha set, and I effin’ love it! Goes purrrfectly with her Goopy punch that I delight in using. The tiaras are from Gel-A-Tins.

I hope you can see it… I used the same Glitter marker in the jewels of the crown as I did in my little Zombie Princess’ eyes. Click on any of the images to make it bigger.

I feel so happy now… I hated not playing along with Haunted Design House… I really need to carve out some more time…but I have yet to figure out how! Now go! Go and concoct a gruesome design too! Have a fang-tastic day!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
