Smeared Ink / Simply Betty Blog Hop - Zombie style

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Smeared Ink & Simply Betty DT's Zombilicious Blog Hop

What brought this on? A mutual love for Zombies, of course! Well, that plus Simply Betty is sponsoring 2 of the Smeared and Smudged monthly Challenges. If you enter these challenges you have a chance to win Simply Betty Zombie digis! Not only that but you will get a free digi image from Smeared Ink just for participating! How awesome is that?!

In addition to sponsoring the Smeared and Smudged challenges this month, Betty was generous enough to allow the Smeared Ink DT to work with some of her zombies. Hop around and leave some love then be sure to swing by the Smeared and Smudged forum to join in the challenges!

(totally plagiarized from Lady B - thanks sweetie!)

The digi I chose to work with was the Everyday Zombie Teen Lola. Thank you again, Betty!!!! Lola in all her many styles is my favorite, probably because she reminds me of my teenager dd Beccah; naive, kind, carefree & blonde. Well, I couldn't just have Lola on the card - she needs to be the center of attention yanno? So I have Simply Betty's Valentine Emo Teen Miller (he's a cutie too) totally in love with Lola. Love is blind, after all.

The images were colored with my new Derwent Inktense Pencils & Prismacolor Pencils. I also used one of Smeared Ink's digis, "gear Heart" from the Hearts set, colored them, then added some Brass & Rock Candy Stickles from Ranger. I then stamped "Do you feel lucky Punk?" senti from Smeared Ink's "Chicks Dig Guns" rubber stamp set in Staz On Black. Added a couple of embellishments from my stash, mounted everything on the skully sheet of DCWV paper from the Rock Star stack, then onto a base of cardstock. Hope you like it.

I really urge you to stop by & join the Smeared & Smudged Forum:
a. it's free
b. the artists there are awesome, welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable
c. lots of fun challenges & monthly freebies for participating
d. did I mention it's free?

Here's the list of participants in the hop. If you can leave them some love, and head over to the Smeared & Smudged Forum to join in all the fun! Now get to hoppin'!
