Zombie Birthday Card


This is one of the cards I made for Shannon's birthday which was Monday, I was lucky enough to win some images from The Stamping Boutique and this is one of the one I picked it's called Zombie girl with tea. 
I cut a card blank in half and then stuck the image panel overhanging the top to create this shaped card. The striped paper is from MME Miss Caroline All Dolled Up pad and I used my martha stewart zig zag punch on the bottom edge. I used some purple bakers twine wrapped around the card with a tiny black bow charm tied onto it.

I have coloured her with promarkers added a tiny amount of black glitter glue to the flower on the cup and glossy accents to the skulls. I have decoupaged the zombie and the skulls to make them pop from the background.

Here's a close up of her face so you can see her eyes I used crackle accents on them to give them a zombie look.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch & Stash Challenge - Sketch ( new image used)
Celebrate the Occasion - Birthday Shaped Card
Raise The Bar - Use Twine
Crafts 4 Eternity - Digital
