Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge

We have a brand new Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge for you!! We hope you will come join in on the fun!!

Here’s how the new challenge is going to work.  We’re taking our two of our  popular challenges, the sketch challenge and photo inspiration challenge and combining them.  (PLEASE NOTE that just for fun, in future challenges we may change this up.)  We’ll give you the choice to follow the sketch provided,  you can use the photo,  color palette, or any combination for endless opportunities in your creative process.   Just decide what part of the challenge inspires you and create whatever you’d like.  Card, home decor, scrapbook layout, WHATEVER.  It’s totally up to you.   Please remember that you DON’T HAVE to use Peachy Keen Stamps to play along with our challenge, but we love it when you do!
Here are the challenge photos for you to draw inspiration from, with challenge details to follow.
First up is the sketch.  Feel free to rotate it, flip it, or change it up however you’d like just as long s the basic elements of the sketch are still part of your creation.

Here is what I came up with based on the sketch and using most of the colors.

I just love these super cute zombies that Kathy has created and thought that I wanted to create a zombie card with this super cute sentiment.

I first stamped and paper pieced the super cute little zombies from PKS-Faceless Zombie Kids 2 by Jessica Weible. For the little zombie girl I used the new PKS-Zombie Face Assortment. I also used Copic markers are a few parts of each one.

I then stamped on the sentiment from PKS-Halloween Sentiments and Label onto the grave stone from PKS-Ye Old Boneyard. I added white gel pen stitching and white dots to it as well.
I stamped on just the drippy goo from the PKS-Happy Halloween Background stamp onto the green card stock with Memento Black Ink.
I added black grass that I cut out using my Cuttlebug and the MCT: Stitched Grass Die.
I embellished the corners with Recollection's Halloween Enamel Dots.
