It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains

Having more fun with Hallowe’en cards, this one features the other image from the Trick or Eat! set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

My inspiration for the colours and design of the background is from the inspiration photo at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I had a whole lot of fun getting inky with the background, which I think created the perfect backdrop for my zombie girl.

The stamp I’ve used is a now retired rubber one and is back from September 2014; it’s been in my collection for some time and finally got inked up this Hallowe’en.  As it’s over 12 months old and my project is fitting for a challenge theme of Boo! I’m entering my card in the current challenge at Retro Rubber.

Now there may be some who believe in zombies but for me they are definitely fantasy beings and, after a very poor showing fighting zombies at Knott’s Scary Farm a couple of years back, I’m very thankful they do belong only in the realms of fantasy.  With my zombie image I am entering my card in the current “did I make you up?” challenge at City Crafter.
