Here’s One I’m Making – Zombie Loves You

So it’s Saturday night, The Walking Dead is back on TV after its mid season break and as it was Valentines this week so I thought I would pull out my favourite Visible Image zombie stamp and share Mr BMB’s valentine’s card for this year.

I am trying to get back into craft challenge blogs as a way of keeping up my crafting and this week I am drawing inspiration from:

As one of the challenges was not to use pattern paper, I started off by stamping my main image, letting it dry and then covering the image with masking fluid. I first saw Sheena Douglass use this on hochanda and I have been in love with it since then.

0213-wobble_valentine-01It take about 5 minutes to dry, after which I covered the image with a stencil and dabbed through ink. I wanted an Urban feel, so went for a brick wall. The beauty of masking fluid is that you can stencil right up to the image.

0213-wobble_valentine-02Or in my case – stencil all over it before rubbing off the fluid. It sets to a rubber like texture and peels off just like PVA glue on the back of your hand… but without the hairs!

0213-wobble_valentine-03I coloured the image in with Spectrum Noir markers, giving the zombie grey hair (to match Mr BMB). I stamped the sentiment from the same set of stamps and added some hearts.
