Zombie Alice with a Bow in her Hair - a Delicious Doodles DT project!

Happy April 1st and Welcome to my new blog's home at Velvet Paw Creations.com!
This is where I will now be sharing my design team creations and all my previous posts from LeighSBDesigns.blogspot have been moved over to here too!  LeighSBDesigns is being redesigned in readiness for the launch of my grand new adventure!  I can't wait to tell you all about it so stay tuned!

Today I'm sharing my inspiration project for our new challenge over at Delicious Doodles Challenges and April's theme is Ribbons and Flowers.  I could not resist using this GORE-gous ghoul, Angry Zombie Alice, who looks so lovely with a bow in her hair don't you think!  I paired Zombie Alice up with another DD digi, the Rose Corner, which I used twice to create the frame for Alice.

I designed the layout in Photoshop CS6 and printed out onto Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I coloured everything with Copic markers and used drops of rubbing alcohol on the roses and leaves to blur and bleed the colours together to further enhance the grunge vibe I wanted for this piece and then worked some more on the leaves and roses with Copics.  I distressed the edges of the cardstock with Tim's paper distresser tool and used Derwent brown pastel pencil blended with a Dove Blender pen on the background.  I used Dylusions white paint pen on the dots and applied Viva le Pearl Magic White Transparent on top for a touch of dimension and shimmer.  I also applied clear Wink of Stella to her glorious red nails.  I made a bow for her hair and adhered it over the bow that's part of the design with a glue dot and finished off by adding small blue self-adhesive jewels to the flourishes and larger ones on all four corners.  I then matted the panel onto slate "dirty" blue cardstock which I tore to further add to the grunge feel of the piece before adhering everything to a folded card I made from a sheet of black cardstock.  I love the finished piece and that I achieved exactly the look and feel I was going for.

Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!
Happy Stamping and have a great weekend!
I currently design for Joggles.com, The East Wind and Delicious Doodles
