day 11!


hello and welcome back! ok, so yesterday's post didn't come off as creepy as it could have, so i'm kinda of hoping to make up for it today.  i totally ripped off my project from here, but with no plans on selling these or prints of these, i think i'm cool. granted mine does NOT look as good as there's, but i tried. the zombie stamp is from sugarskull7.  i painted a recycled piece of carbroad white and cut it out to look like a plant marker, stamped my image and went over it with aged paper distress ink, which made the ink on the zombie blurr. i drew a small moon and added the words 'full moon' and 'zombies'. since this is going to be outside i laminated each of them (i made a total of 8). they line my walkway.
oh, i found the pots on cleancre at target, which i spray painted black and the hands came from the dollar tree. the great thing is these only cost less then $16 total for all 8! i painted them with a mixture of green, black, a fleshy color, and gray. head on over to the sidebar and get to hopping! enjoy! lisa
