Brains, Brains, Candy Canes!

Hello, hello! I have a new Teen Christmas Zombie to share with you from Simply Betty Stamps. Say hello to Peppermint Brooke!

I colored her with my watercolor markers...a lot of them! I layered the heck out of her. Plus I used 2 of my 4 Copics. ;) Her skin took me a while, becuase I was trying to get her decaying flesh just right. I used E40, plus a muted mossy green, and a tan.

I used some Distress Inks around the edge of the image. I sponged on Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Peeled Paint. Nice and icky looking!

I used a couple of random scraps a button, some fibers and a ticket to finish off the card. Plus my sentiment, which I made using a Just Rite alphabet stamp. Tomorrow I will have another Christmas Teen Zombie to share with you, as well as a new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. Be sure to hop over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see what the rest of the DT has made. By the way, thank you so much for all of the kind words you left for Rhiannon the other day. She was beyond thrilled! She kept asking me to go on the computer to see what else people said about her card. Thank you very much for making her day! Nave an inspiring day!

Neat card, Alison. Love the use of coupon! Cool idea!
I love the way this turned out and both sentiments are great! The distressing is great and I love her yellow eyes! :D

Cute image, colored really well.

It is a bit disconcerting to read that you were "tryhing to get her decaying flesh just right."

Something seriously creepy about that.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
