Peppermint Brooke

This young zombie could seriously use a peppermint!  Have you ever smelled zombie breath?  Well, I haven't either but I can just imagine how stinky it would be!  So today Simply Betty Stamps is introducing Peppermint Brooke, the newest image in the Sketchy Zombie Christmas collection.  I decided that I wanted my cute little zombie to look like a freshly made zombie so I colored her with my Copics in a normal skin tone and then I went in and added W2 and W5 to kind of "putrify" her a little.  I must say that looking at the card in person is a little too different than looking at her on the computer.  On my screen she really doesn't look nearly as putrified as she does in person and that disappoints me.  I was really going for a freshly dead look!    

The papers I used were Neenah for the image, Bazzill for my base and accents and My Mind's Eye "be Merry" for the prints. I accented with some pink ribbon from my stash and a few pink dew drops.   At any rate, the card came out as cute as a card can look with a putrified zombie.  I actually kind of like the contrast between cute peppermint-y colors and a zombie with decaying flesh.  Not something you see every day, now is it!?  I do hope you enjoy Peppermint Brooke, I sure had a good time making her into a card!  Come back tomorrow as there will be yet another zombie on the loose! 
Thanks for stopping by!
