Halloween 3/5

This Oddball Art image of a child Zombie is probably the ooogiest image I have done all season!  Perfect for a young person who is really into blood and guts and the Zombie Apocalypse.
The image was colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  The front of the base card was cut off and a double sided Designer Paper was adhered to the front flap.  The sentiment, which comes with the image, was punched and mounted on a 2nd larger punched shape.  A small hole was punched in the top and then I used a small quilters tool to insert a plastic 'hanger' [similar to how retailers attach a price tag to a piece of clothing.]  This allows the sentiment to swing freely on the front of the card.

The inside utilizes the black strip from which I punched the mat. This created a 'window' for the "hello..." sentiment and a mat behind the message panel.  LoVe when I can use my scraps like this!! 

So - here is the behind the scene story about this card...
Oddball Art offered a free image to anyone who would color and send a card to a 9 yo boy who had health problems.  I'm thinking  - ok 9 yo, a boy - he will love oooogie.  So I ordered this image and got it ready to send and got to thinking about his health problem... he has brain cancer and PROBABLY would be facing brain surgery!  OMGawd!  What was I thinking!  Just LOOK at that image - soooo inappropriate!  So I switched out another card and quick emailed the Oddball people and told them of my poor taste in choices - heavy sigh.  The kid got a card, I caught the problem in time AND I got a free image.  It was a very good day afterall.                                   

Create wildly and color with abandon!
