A Queen and her rotting court

I made another ATC for the current challenge at WW ATC challenge
We're sponsored by my uber talented, Sister Minion, 
Teri of Delicious Doodles.

I immediately thought of this DD image called, Malice,
when I heard the theme was Tarot Symbols

She is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!

I colored her effortlessly, with Copics. And what I mean by effortlessly,
is that Teri's images have nice, thick lines, that make coloring much
simpler. Not to mention she provides the shading as well. Nice.
Too bad she didn't provide the writing too. I stamped each letter 
myself with various rubber alpha stamps. 
A little wonky, but it does the trick.

There is still time to enter over at Wicked Wednesday.
I see new Delicious Doodles images in your future.....

I'd also like to share a couple of masculine themed 
cards I made recently using images from Rick St. Dennis.

First up, is the rotting head image, "Going, Going, Gone".

I love this image, but after coloring it up with Copics, I was 
stumped as to how to use this image on a card. 
Rick to the rescue! 
It's amazing how one witty sentiment can bring everything together. 


The finished card using a MS iron fence punch, some MS paper 
tape, a Pink Paisley banner border, and some tapestry dp from 
unknown origins. An overall, masculine feel. 
I'm always at a loss for masculine cards.

Next I'd like to share my version of the current 
RSD Airless Chambers freebie, "Singing Zombie".

It was all I could do to not color him in my "go to" zombie colors.
I usually always color my zombies in YGs. Don't know why, 
other than they're my favorite color family, 
and zombies are my favorite monsters.

I used all Warm Grays for his flesh and a bit of RV25, 23, and 21
for the exposed bloody bits. I wanted the tongue to show up, and be somewhat realistic, so I colored it purple. I also chose my 
paper first, which is something I seldom do, but it helped 
tremendously when coloring the background. 

I found the musical note image on the web, half toned it, and 
added the Happy Birthday sentiment in Gimp.

Remember, the free Zombie image is still available here,
and you have until the 24th of May to enter the challenge 
using said zombie image.
More RSD images are up for grabs to the three winners
so why not play along? You'll find the place to add your entry 
along the top of the blog, marked May 2013 Freebie Contest.
