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

Happy April 1st to you all!
Before I share today's project I've got news about my new blog, Velvet Paw Creations.  Nope this isn't an April Fools prank heheheh, I'm busy doing a complete re-design of my website and my blogs and my new blog now has my Velvet Paw URL and will feature the projects I create for the design teams I'm on.  I'm going to do a slow transition so my projects will be shared in both locations for now.  I hope you will all pop on over to my Velvet Paw Creations blog and start following me there now too.  Don't leave this blog though coz I've got a big unveiling and a launch to soon announce and LeighSBDesigns will be the blog for my grand new adventure!  I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Now for today's project share!  It's time 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 and don't forget to pop on over to my new blog and start following me there now too!
Happy Stamping and have a great weekend!
