Day 17 of 31: My Heart, Your Brain

Hello out there in Bloggy-Land! It's Day 17 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have the companion ATC for that sweetie of a mummy that I posted the other day. This image is from Vera Lane, as was the mummy. She is in fact, part of the same Quirky Zombie and Cat collection. And, most importantly, she's the mummy's girlfriend. See? He was only sad the other day because I hadn't posted his gal yet.

I colored her with my Tombow watercolor markers. My background was done on watercolor paper with a few sprays of color. Then, I stamped Andy Skinner's (for Stampendous) Scratch stamp from the Industrial Cling set. It "junked up" the background perfectly, I think.

The fab sentiment is from the Vera Lane collection as well. I think my little couple will be quite happy together, side by side....don't you think? Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
