SOS: The walking dead...

Use a zombie!

It's that time of year... the Shopping Our Stash team wants to see the walking dead-- ZOMBIES-- on your creations!

Here's my tag:

Supplies and notes:
  • Strathmore watercolor paper coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste through a Tim Holtz stencil and sprayed with Dylusions sprays as a background... made months ago...
  • I sanded down the card with my Dremel... FUN.
  • Tree stamp by (uh-oh-- gotta look later...) and star stamp cut from a larger star stamp from Dylusions
  • Various Stickles used (colors I have hardly ever used-- purple, yellow...) and black Viva Paper Pearls
  • The wood zombie was from JoAnns this year, right as they were putting Halloween stuff out.  I bought a bunch of Halloween wood-cuts and have only used this one... so yeah for me using part of a stash that will likely live for a while... Anyway, I painted the zombie with Distress Paints
  • The sentiment was written with a Micron pen on a scrap of cheap watercolor paper that was just on my desk
  • Black pom-pom trim from my stash
  • Colorful yarn from Andrea Ockey-Parr... thanks!
10/21/17: Oh my heck... I meant to add to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and just noticed as I was cruising the Saturday challenges that I DIDN'T!  So HERE!!!!
