Zombie b-day card
This new Zombie bunny image from Meljen's Designs is absolutely hilarious. It just cracks me up every time I look at him. Because the Meljen's DT and Challenge blog has the theme of birthday cards this week. I decided to use him as a birthday bunny zombie. He's so flabbergasted at the card-getter's age that he's gone into shock :)
I coloured this image with my Prismacolor pencils using OMS to blend. The white dots on his patch are made with acrylic paint and a stylus. His pop out eyeballs are flat back pearls and his tongue sticking out got a little dose of Stickles just for fun.
The background paper is from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper stack. The original piece had blue at the bottom but I needed the piece to be shorter so I cut it off. Then I took a blue pencil crayon and coloured in some of the rings to put that blue back into the card. When in doubt, improvise :) The sentiment was computer-generated and coloured with Micron pen and pink pencil crayon. Three flat back pearls repeated the pearls in his eyes and pulled the pink to the top of the card.
Zombie made me smile. I hope the person who receives him finds this card equally amusing. Of course, it won't be you because you and I are so darn young :) I am entering this card in this week's Meljen's challenge.
Thanks for dropping by.
Life is good; so is art.
