Be Zombified!

Hello, and Happy Sunday!  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  We're edging ever closer to Halloween. I'm not a huge Halloween fan, but I do like the cute, kids in costumes, let's go trick-or-treating side of the holiday.  Today, I have a tutorial on how to color zombie skin.  Follow along below, if you're interested!

This image, from Lacy Sunshine, is Be Zombified! from the Rory Be Happy Coloring Book, available at Amazon.com.



Zombie skin.  I've never seen a zombie.  I don't watch any zombie shows (not even The Walking Dead), so really, who's to say what a zombie looks like.  This gives the artist pure artistic license, so have it, right?!?

My interpretation of a zombie, that also has to remain cute, because she is, after all, a Lacy Sunshine digi, is this:

Skin: Copic markers colors V000, V01, G000, G00, BV000

Eyes: BG000, B12, B14
lips: R21, R22

Hair: E50, Y21, YR24

Wrappings: E30, E33, E35

Clothing: V12, V15, V17
YR00, Yr02, YR07, E15, E18



There's an anything goes challenge happening on the Lacy Sunshine blog, so come join the fun!  I have 2 Facebook groups for you to check out, too.  There's the Lacy Sunshine Color N Craft Community and the Coloring Without Boundaries Facebook Group.   Both are wonderful, supportive communities to show your work, get inspired, and hear of sales and news.

Snowflakes of Love

Today its my turn to show you this beautiful Snowflakes of Love Angelkisses.
 For me, angels always have sof toned dresses, and because she's blowing snowflakes, it has to be winter though, its blue all the way.

Coloured with copics.

Cardstock from Craft Sensations.

I added some dies, Snowflakesdies from Tim Holz, Nestabilities, The music die from Joy and a borderpunch from Martha Stewart. The glittering blue paper comes from stock, no idea where I bought it, would very much to buy some more..
