You should always keep a sewing kit handy!



Here's a piece I did this afternoon. The image is Zombie Lola by Simply Betty Stamps and the patterned paper is from the Memories of Atlantis set by Crafty Chaos Designs.
These are the challenges I made it for:
Get Sketchy - sketch #84
Simply Betty Challenges - zombie invasion
Southern Girls - green and blue
Charisma Cardz - jokes and laughter
The Burtonesque Dolls - stitch contrasting bits of bp together to form your background
Make It Colourful - give your image black hair. This is my second attempt, as the shading on the firsy one was all done by the stamp artist, not by me. So, this is my first real attempt at shading black hair myself. I couldn't get it to look as brilliantly shiny as others seem to do, but I have at least used lots of shading to (hopefully) denote movement. It's an improvement, right? Right???

That's awesome! Love that senti, it's perfect for the Zombies. Lol! Love the coloring and your paper choice is fab. Thanx for joining us at Simply Betty Challenges.

Roaring laughing at the sentiment!!
Anyways, the black hair doesn't always need to look shiny at all, it all depends on light conditions and lets just say you have captured your zombie on overcast day - brilliantly, by the way!
Thank you so much for playing with us at MIC this week - hoping to see you back soon!

i think your zombie's hair is brilliantly perfect as it wouldn't be shiny as she most likely wouldn't be out in the middle of the day anyway! you added lots of nice shading so it has a lot of movement. thanks for joining us at make it colourful this week!
