Making a Zombie Birthday Card with Touch 5 Markers

Two of my close friends have their birthdays in August.  They are kind of frisky, and will get a kick out of these cards.
The old lady with the bootie is from AI Art impressions and the zombies are from Art Gone Wild.  I decided to color the zombies and use the sentiment from the AI set for both cards.  I used wobbles to make the lady’s face wobble and the other wobble I used on the cut out of the lady zombie.

I colored the zombies with Touch 5 markers and Rich wrote the numbers on the screen. I used gray tones to color the zombies.  I like to use the lightest color first for the whole image, then go over the highlights with a  darker tone, then go back over everything with the lightest tone again.
I used a peg stamp small crab to stamp on the rubber duckie.  You can find them at http://www.pegstamps.com, and Lindsay the frugal crafter almost always has a discount code for them on her latest peg stamp video.
I had a stamp from Seaside Stampin Inc  that had some sand on it and I inked the stamp where the sand was, and used baked brown sugar ink to stamp it with.    I’m sorry I was out of frame for the sand and part of the zombie coloring.
I used the 1″ chip brush to color in the background with Cool Caribbean ink.  I used Summer Sun to stamp a sun from the peg stamps and stamped it in the corner.  I used another chip brush to color in the sandy area with more crumb cake stampin’ up ink.
I cut one of the lady zombies and used a black Sharpie to outline the lady so there is no white showing.  I tried to cut one of the wobbles down so it would work under her head, but it doesn’t really wobble in the end.  I had to add foam tape behind the rest of the lady zombie, so she didn’t tear at her neck.
I found nail art jewelry at the Dollar Tree and used it as embellishments on both cards.
