So proud of this one, Z for Zombie.

Sometimes a page really comes together and this one did. I love the way it turned out, have a look!
I started with gluing some tulle down with matte gel medium. Then I glued the image down of a haunted house which I downloaded from the Internet. Next step I used Nerchau Structuring Fiber Paste for the ground which I covered with an open weave ribbon. After drying I painted all around the picture with Blonde Moments Suet Blue Lustre paint which has a shimmer and green acryllic paint which I gave a shimmer by adding Perfect Pearls. After drying I made a wash by mixing black acryllic paind with Golden Glaze. I painted all over, waited for a minute and then wiped with a baby wipe.
The gate was stamped with black embossingpowder. It's a Paper Artsy Stamp I bought this summer in France when I was there on holiday. I was lucky enough to find a craft shop that was going to close down and they were selling everything at a 70% discount, so I got this stamp for only € 8,-. I was over the moon with my find LOL! It does give a lot of depth to the page don't you think?
This handsom fellow is de digistamp bij Rick St. Dennis and I coloured him with Copics. I think the quality of the drawing is stunning, and so are his other stamps. After I finished the page I found his clothes were much too brownish so I gave the entire image a layer of cools greys and that did the trick.
At the top of my page I used texture paste and a stencil with branches on both sides. I took some gauze and took it apart. The threads make lovely fake cobwebs when you glue them down with mat gel medium. The cat, the bats and the spiders are satin Halloween decorations which I bought in a bag together with some pumpkins and skulls.

So that was it, I do hope you like my page and I'm off to check out what everyone else has made with the letter Z. Have a great Sunday, hugs Frea
I will enter my card for the Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge.
