Zombie Ava

TGIF!!  So happy it is the weekend!  This week has not been the greatest for me and I'm just ready to take a few days of doing nothing but chilling with my hubby.

I decided to make one more Halloween card before the holiday passes...I love Halloween so much and the ideas seem to be taking over the areas of my mind that need to be thinking about Christmas.  So I gave in one last time and made a simple Halloween card.

We started watching The Walking Dead a few days ago.  Not sure if it was a good idea yet or not...I sort of feel like a wimp...I had nightmares all night about zombies after watching the first episode...and this is our second go at getting into the show.  The first time we tried was right after the first season started...yeah...we got about 10 minutes in to the hospital scene and I flipped...so we turned it off.

But I'm trying again!  And I like it so far...just creeps me out a bit, that's all...
So with zombies on the brain, I made a zombie card :)
I have read several posts from other crafty bloggers about turning normal characters into zombies, and I really wanted to try it out.  As you know, I'm addicted to the Saturated Canary images, can't get enough of them.  I decided to use a non-zombie image of Krista's and turn it into one.  I think it came out pretty good!  This is Ava...zombified :)  Again, I messed up on coloring the first print-off of her so I had to try again...I didn't want to color her skin green..I wanted it more grey but the first time coloring her, it was way way too grey...so I toned it down a bit the second time through :)
The large spiderweb background is a Memory Box die cut that I bought a while ago and never used!  I loved it when I purchased it, but I think I loved it so much I didn't want to put it to use :)
I found the sentiment quote during a google search for just general Halloween phrases a while ago and thought it was perfect for this card, so I typed it up and printed it out.

All the edges are distressed with my scissors to give the whole card a roughed up feel.  Love it!

And it fits with lots of challenges this week :)
