Always Be a Zombie

I count it a privilege to get to design samples with Tim Holtz's new stamp releases. It amazes me the creativity from each of the designers and how with the same stamps there are such a variety of styles and ideas. It's a great process to get to be a part of.

I'm sharing one of my samples today that makes me giggle. It was such a fun card to work on and I was able to use all the images for an entire stamp set on it too! LOL!
To make this card, the main stamp set I used was the Zombies CMS350 set. The fence is made by stamping the Planks CMS344 stamp and then cutting it apart and attaching the planks like a fence. The tree branch in the background is from the Mr. Bones CMS345 set.
I stamped and watercolored each zombie image and then cut them out by hand. I ink around the edges with my Distress Markers because that allows me to get into all the little nooks and crannies.
I figured some zombies don't have bodies so this guy is just a zombie head on the ground.
For the sentiment, I stamped two of the hands coming out of the ground and then cut them out. I cut around the finger tips and slid the sentiment under them so the hands are holding the sign.  This zombie has two left hands. LOL!

That's it. This was a fun, silly zombie card just to bring a smile to your face.  Have fun with this stamp set -- there's so much you can do with it.
