Smeared and Smudged Member Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Smeared and Smudged member blog hop!  Our theme this month was to use metal in a project.  Easy, right?  Well, the metal couldn't be in the form of brads or eyelets.  I had such grand plans for this!  Unfortunately, I flaked and forgot about the hop until a night or two ago (blushes with embarrassment) and have worked late the past two days.  I must say I cheated a bit on this one, which is not common for me, but I ran out of time and wanted to at least post something (holds head down in shame).

Here is my offering:

I used an awesome zombie image drawn by artist James Garza.  He was kind enough to allow me to color yet another one of his wonderful creations.  Technically, I cheated twice.  I just realized I entered a project with line art and not a stamp, but heck...if I can resize it and received it in digital format can't it count as a digi stamp?  I know, I am pushing my limits.  Perhaps I won't flake next month.  I just REALLY wanted to color up this zombie as I LOVE it so!!!  I will be entering this in HDH's Macabre Monday as well.  Their challege this week is Zombie Apocalypse.  The zombie girl  is colored with copic markers and distress ink.  I couldn't figure out where to add metal on this without wrecking my project so I decided to make an altered  frame.  Now...remember how I flaked on the project until a day or two ago?  Don't ask me how I thought I'd finish my frame in time for the hop!  Being the digital age, I busted out photoshop and found a cool pic of a saw blade online.  I messed with it a bit so I could created a frame.  Sorry that I cheated, but time was not on my side this month.  I still dig the end result and hope that you do too!

Cheers!
