New Zombie Images available soon from SSS

Well We have some different images coming soon at the Scrapbook Stamp Society. The Zombies have arrived in Style!
When I was offered this Digi, I was told to think outside the box. Which is Literally what I did, though it doesnt look like it from this shot, does it.
I needed some things to build my design around, and I dont have a huge collection of Zombie stuff in my stash so I had to turn to Goths for what I needed, Sorry Jems Designs!
When I think of zombies, they're green, or grey, and generally unhealthy looking, and always looking to surprise the unwary, which is where the photo below came in.
Strangely it must be a very weird football team she is a cheer leader for. Can you imagine a game of American football with teams of Zombies? There would be bits flying off all over the place!!
So I borrowed an Idea I saw round Christmas Time on Create and Craft with Wendy from Kanban. and created a folding box for the front of my card, using some Blood red pearlised paper. I am going to try to figure out how to do small video tutorials this week I promise, lol.
I used several sheets from Jems Designs Gothic Beauties CD, as I needed Coffins, and cemetery stuff lol, and used one of the backing papers and a tag, and a Gatefold design piece.
I printed the Coffin on photopaper adding my own wording, the Gatefold piece I replicated, and printed out twice on my Laser printer, and the backing sheet was printed using an Ink jet printer. So you have super shiny, quite shiny and Matt. I took a strip of Self adhesive Craft Lace Border, and coloured it with Tim Holtz's Black Soot Distress ink, direct from the pad. I used 3 white flowers from a collection by the Glitter Girls, and again coloured them with Black Soot, mixed with some water, then Dried with my Heat gun.
Zimberly Zombie is from a new Line By Heather Valentin, over at SSS, released today, and I coloured her with Promarkers, Tea Green, Warm Grey 1, Cool Grey 4, Red, Soft Peach, Caramel, Buttercup, and Cornflower. Then I trimmed carefully around her and mounted her on some Fluorescent green card, which was trimmed to shape.
I mounted the box on the front of the card, and then placed the gatefold sections over the flaps, I cut a small slit in one side for the ribbon to affix to, and the mounted the coffin to the middle of the folded box, fixing another piece of ribbon behind the coffin, to form a closure. I took some2 strips of 220micron Acetate and scored it at centimeter intervals, the folded it to form concertina springs, and fixed then to the back of Zimberly, before fixing it to the centre of the folding box.
She is quite hard to squeeze back in her box to hide her, but she  does jump out of the Coffin Quite nicely, lol.
I think she is a giggle, and I dont "do" Zombies lol,

Love to know what you think, xxx
