VIDEO: Drop Shadow Frame Tutorial

For non-crafty types, there might not be seasonal fatigue, but for me - Christmas/winter crafting is the longest "season" and so I am always ready for something completely different in December. So last month, I broke the holiday streak with a zombie. I'm sure you're not surprised. 

I'm bringing you a card inspired by my friend and brother from another mother - Daniel West. Daniel and I share an undying love for all things spooky, and most especially - ZOMBIES. We were so gleeful when the Graveyard HeroScape debuted, we could hardly stand it. So I'm taking this very sweet and not even a little creepy card by Daniel and using it as my inspiration for today's card!

First, I cut two pieces of cardstock with the Jungle Frame Fancy Die - one in black and one in green, like Daniel did on his card. Then I ink blended the background with Key Lime Fizz Reactive ink, adding Grape Juice ink around the edges to add some shadow and spookiness. Then I used the Cloudy Sky Scene dies to cut a piece of Duralar to use as a stencil, and I lightly brushed Orchid ink in the center of the ink blended panel.

To stamp the zombie and cobblestones, I put them in my MISTI and inked them up in Soft Granite, but stamped them off once on a scrap to make the ink paler. I did the same with the sentiment from the Graveyard Heroscape. The lighter ink enhances the perspective of the darkest objects being the closest ones to the viewer. Which is a good thing, since the thing that's farther away is a zombie!

Many thanks to my FIEND, Daniel for the endless inspiration he generously shares.  Enjoy the video - click HERE if you don't see the player below.
