The Stamping Chef Facebook Challenge

Did you know that The Stamping Chef has a Facebook group?  If you love Tamara's images you should totally join. They've recently resurrected their FB challenge, and I *had* to play. It took a couple of tries, because it's a tricky recipe!

Your project should include:
cotton balls

The Zombified image, sure, but the other two ingredients? SOS card from Tuesday was my first attempt. This time I did it! The gauze is there, I promise:

Supplies: Zombified digi from The Stamping Chef; Spectrum Noir markers; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; black and grey card stock; purple rhinestones from Dollarama; cotton ball and gauze

I coloured the image first, and then thought to have her bursting out of the card. As I sliced an "x" in the middle of each piece of cardstock I said to hubby - well, this is either going to be spectacular or a hot mess! I used a distressing tool on each exposed edge of the cardstock, rolled & glued the black pieces, and then the grey. 

After peeling back the cardstock to make the window, I taped the gauze down on three sides, leaving the bottom open so I could tuck the zombie in. She's adhered using different heights of foam tape to enhance the looming feel. Then I pulled apart the cotton pad to look misty and used double sided tape to stick it underneath the other elements so the tape wouldn't show. 

There's a touch of glitter pen on her hair, and on her eyes, and my Walking Dead-loving fourteen year old said she's hot for a zombie. Win!

Check out the Stamping Chef FB group, and of course their challenge & shop as well - I'm entering this in Challenge #52 as well :)

This is one awesome card! Perfect the way she's coming out of the card. Must be reassuring to know your card (or at least the zombie) is hot, and not a hot mess! :D

Well, it's spectacular! That's so creative to have her look like she's coming out of the card! The gauze......I would have never thought to use it that way! Fabulous...Walking Dead and all! (Um...don't know if I ever considered a zombie as being hot though! LOL!)

This is a real winner with the way you creatively have her exploding from the card front! Great coloring too! Creepy fun!!
