Here’s One I am Making – Zombie Goes Disco Dancing

As Penny Black and More allow you to enter up to three cards in each challenge and as I am using my favourite stamp again, I thought I would enter this card too, as well as in Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes” challenge this week.

0213-martin_leaving_card-03I started by stamping the image, letting it dry and then covering it with masking fluid. I wanted to use one of Sheena Douglass’s 60’s stencils which is delicate, I wanted to try a new technique to secure the stencil in place. I used something I picked up in the States, its called press and seal, its like a slightly adhesive cling film.

0213-martin_leaving_card-04It works, the stencils are secured in place and I could move the cardstock around underneath it until I liked the position! I think I would use it for projects where I just wanted to use a stencil quickly for a small area but for background development I will carry on using spray glue.

0213-martin_leaving_card-05As I had slipped slight with the design when I stamped it and as I wanted to make this zombie to really “pop” I edged the image with light grey.

0213-martin_leaving_card-06I like the effect because it looks like a psychedelic shadow, it makes the image look like it is shimmering a little bit.

0213-wobble_valentine-04Here are the two images with out the finishing bits. It’s amazing how it looks different with just a change of background and hair colour.

0213-martin_leaving_card-01I matted the card on rainbow MirriCard and then onto white cardstock.
