My card for Aurora Wings Showcase Blog, new image released: Zombie Puppy

Hello dear readers!

Today I'm gonna show you my inspirational card for Mitzi Sato Wiuff's new digi - release at Aurora Wings Showcaseblog!

This time, it's going a little bit creepy..... Beware of the Zombie Puppy!!!

Isn't he cute? :-D

This image inspired me for doing my very first Halloween card - I never did one before!
(Even though I like Halloween, but it isn't celebrated here in Germany so much - and less then ever here in our little village :-D )

But I think, it turned out ok - what do you think...? ;-)

I colored the puppy with a mix of Spectrum Noir Markers and Copic Ciao's:

Spectrum Noir Markers:
LV1, LV2, LV3, IG2, GG1, GG3, GG4, CG1, CG2, CG4

Copic Ciao Markers:
YR3, YR00, Y38, YR68, R22, R27, RV29, R59, G05, YG67

I also used some white gel pen for the highlights on the eyes and some areas of the fur and the bones.

The backgroundpapers where free digipapers (I didn't have any Halloween stuff here in my stash, so I had to extemporize a little bit ;-) )

The black tree is hand drawn and also hand cut, I added some cotton to make it look like fog oder spiderwebs between the branches (so my cosmetics pads became a new appointment as I don't use them for cosmetics... don't use that very often :-D :-D )

With some red pigment ink I stamped a trail of blood on the background (Stamps: Joy!Crafts).

Die cut: Memory Box.

I applied some grey pigment ink to it, and made a little mirror out of the cutted out oval and some aluminum foil.

Stamp: Mias Stempelküche.

I distressed the edges and added some Memento Rhubarb Stalk Ink to give them a bloody look.

The grass - die cut at the background is from Joy!Crafts, I made it out from grey paper and added a little bit Memento Tuxedo Black.

Maybe there was ONE little thing I had in my stash for Halloween theme - this little plastic spider seemed to be perfect for this card :-D

If you now also want to play along with this cutie, you can find it here at the Aurora Wings Etsy Shop, or here at Aurora Wings Ditital Stamp Shop!

Thanks for stopping by :-))

  3. hI Karola, in answer to your question re how do I have time to craft so much, well my friend, I am on a lot of DT and have my work months ahead of schedule and as I spend hours on end with my frail dad in the nursing home, I take my images, markers and what ever else I need and craft there while he sleeps. Then I feed him but at the moment he is so ill he is not eating or taking fluids...yesterday I was there for 7 hours and made 5 cards. I would prefer to have a life but at the moment he is my life and my hubby helps as well with him but my dad is slipping away and I am so sad. Tonight I am home as have a touch of the flu so I did not go see him today but he is not well at all and I am really sad.
    I spend hours awake as I worry about him so crafting is a therapy for me....xxxThe Journey is the Start

  4. Such gorgeous coloring, Karola! The colors you chose almost makes the puppy look like he could glow in the dark! Fabulous work! Each and every detail is just perfection. xxD
