The Walking Dead

Today is something a bit different and sees my second entry into the Poisoned Peas monthly challenge, this time the theme is 'The Walking Dead'.

I started off by choosing my first ever digi image which came from the Rick St Dennis Etsy shop, I'm sure she's not to everyone's taste but I just love her.  I printed the image, cut her out and coloured her with a mixture of Tim Holtz distress inks applied with my water brush and Letraset promarkers before adding Ranger glossy accents to the sash, headdress and bracelet.  For the background I ran the Tim Holtz die cut tag through my Sizzix big shot inside the Tim Holtz bricked texture fade.  Next I coloured the tag using Tim Holtz distress inks and Dylusions inks spray.  I stamped the Tim Holtz cityscape at the bottom of the tag and then added my handwritten sentiment on the wall in Sakura white gelly pen before adding a black ribbon and attaching the image using foam pads.
Thanks for looking!

  1. Glad you found a good way to use the digi image. Cutting them out makes them more versatile, she looks like she's had a good night out!

  2. This is very dramatic Tracey. I used to love the Michael Jackson video with the Zombies and this reminded of me of that.

    Great colours that stand out against the beickwork.
