Zombie Boys…Dressed as Rudolph?

I never thought I would make a card with 2 zombie boys…dressed as Rudolph! But, I’ve done it! Today is release day for the new Simply Betty Stamps collection, Zombie Teen Christmas. For this card, I took separate images of Caleb and Levi and put them on to one card. On the SBS Blog, you will see that you can purchase a merged image of the two boys, as opposed to using them separately. Here’s my card.

I have to say, I had such fun coloring these two boys! Especially Caleb. He looks so miffed about wearing his costume. I used colored pencils for both boys, with Distress Inks around the edges.

Here’s a close up of Caleb. I really enjoyed shading this image. I took a lot of time, so that I could get it just right.

Here’s Levi, who looks quite surprised to find that fluffy tail on his bottom. Even his worm is looking at the costume in wonder!

The sentiment is also from Simply Betty Stamps, from a different zombie collection. My dew drops are colored with alcohol inks, to mimic Rudolph’s nose.

What did you think of this, er, unusual Christmas collection? Wasn’t it fun? Please be sure to visit the SBS Blog to see even more Zombie Teen fun using these boys. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring 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!
