Simply Betty and Smeared & Smudged Zombie Blog Hop!

There is a very special blog hop today! Simply Betty is one of our fabulous sponsors over at Smeared & Smudged this month. And Betty was kind enough to offer the DT a zombie digi for each of us. And the best way to show off her awesome digis, and out talent, is with one fabulous hop! We’ve even got some of Simply Betty’s rad DT with us today! So let’s get this party started, huh?


I chose to work with Zombie Christian. Did you see my Summer Zombie Christian card from the other day? You can view it in this post HERE. I think Christian is awesome, and I hafta say…I had a BLAST making this card! I paired his image with the Build a Zombie alphabet from Smeared Ink.



I wasn’t sure how I wanted to color him…this is actually the second version. The first had bolder colors, and I just wasn’t feelin’ it at the time. So I went with a more muted palate and I think it worked out great!



I used my watercolor markers for Christian and the “Leg.” isn’t this a hilarious image?



I came up with the “I told you to break a leg” sentiment, because I could just picture him trying out for something not quite X Games status…he’s just an amateur, ya know… and he…well…he goofed up and snapped his head off! I don’t think Tony Hawk will be scouting this guy! ;)



And of course I just had to use my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch. Twice. Can’t get enough of that punch! So whatdaya think? You likey?


Below is the complete list of hoppers. Please be sure to stop by and give them all some love! Then be sure to go over to Smeared & Smudged to take part in our challenges there. You know you wanna win some digis from Simply Betty! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!
