#86 Spooky!

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - Spooky
Sponsor & prize this week - Joanna Sheen who has kindly offered a £10 gift voucher

Well, as you can see I have put my own slant on our spooky theme, creating not a Halloween card, but a birthday one! LOL.  It didn't stop Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' running through my head the whole time I was making it though! LOL.

The slightly confused looking zombie is from Make it Crafty & both he & the background have been coloured with Promarkers. Do you reckon he looks 'spooky' enough. LOL. The haunted house background I gave him is, if I labelled it correctly, is from Stampers Best but it came with 'Happy Halloween' written below the image so I had to remove this so it could be a birthday card & so it wouldn't be obscured with my zombie. This too was coloured with Promarkers until it was little more than a silhouette.

I distressed my background paper at the edges before inking with Tim Holtz Distress Ink & then added some white acrylic paint. I added paint to his 'bandages' behind the images mat too. The sentiment I created myself on the PC using a suitably spooky font, putting it onto a scroll - and apologies if now you too start singing 'Thriller' for the rest of the day! LOL.
