They're everywhere! Or maybe not. ;)
But they are on my card today. :D
This card is another example of serendipity at work. You see, I had a bit of a disaster last week - my Putty Promarker, which I use for all my skin-tone colouring, died a sudden death. I was bemoaning its loss on Facebook and a crafty friend of mine suggested, somewhat jokingly, that I would have to do green skin until the replacement I'd ordered arrived, and I joked back agreeing that I would just have to colour everything as zombies.
And then I saw the new challenge theme at the Dilly Beans challenge blog was "Green"! So, of course, I couldn't resist! :lol: And I am blaming this entirely on Mel. :D
I used this Rosie Framed digi stamp and coloured her with lovely, healthy, green zombie skin. :)
I kept the card fairly clean and simple with lots of white space, adding just a strip of patterned paper, a length of ribbon, and a few flowers and leaves:
And I finished things off with a stamped greeting (a Stampin' Up! stamp):
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
