Some time ago Zoe from Make It Crafty invited me to take part in Just For Fun part of the challenges at Make It Crafty Blog. I am smitten by the gorgeous background digis in her shop and since it's just once a month I happily said YES!! lol
This month the theme is Vintage or Distressed and there's also a lovely sketch to follow. The last part I totally forgot but somehow my card came together very close to the sketch all on it's own. :D
As you can see I took the FOR FUN part quite literally and went happily mad.
This time the image is purely a Copic job. No other mediums added.
I thought that this poor zombie (he's a freebie, btw, so snap him up) was more pathetic than scary, hence the idea for the sentiment.
I merged the zombie with the forlorn Aussie Outback background and added a sentiment in Photoshop. Then I had mad fun colouring it all up and lost the track of markers I used about 15 minutes in - I suspect I used every single brown I own and LOTS of other shades. It was a blissfully messy project.
I used plenty of different distressing techniques here - sanding, sponging, rouging up the edges with scissors, crimping the paper, metallic rubons...
The papers are from DCWV and I added dew drops, some pins and jute string as finishing touches.
So come on, play along - for the fun of it! And a prize ... of course, lol.
