Family Portrait?

>> Monday, September 19, 2016

Happy Monday Everyone. A few weeks ago I was at a friend's house making cards. She had a ton of dies that belong to her sister in law and I die cut quite a few things, including this ornate frame. I don't know about you, but it reminds me of the types of frames that would be used on family portraits in the mansions in old Vincent Price and Alfred Hitchcock movies. So I had to use it as a frame for a family portrait of the new zombies here at DRS Designs.

I started by stamping and masking the zombie crawler, then stamped and masked the guy zombie and last I stamped the zombie girl.  They were all colored with Copics.  I cut the "portrait" down to size and glued it into the black frame. The orange panel was embossed with a CB EF. I added the black strip for some variation. The half pearls were peach colored, so I used a Copic marker to color them orange. The Jack O lantern was created using an old paper punch. Not even sure who made it!

Here's a look at the inside.

Since there was no room on the front, I put the greeting on the inside and added some accent bats. This card goes with this week's color challenge too. You can see details here. We'd love to have you join in the fun.

Thanks for stopping by today,

This is so cute Shelia!! I LOVE that family portrait frame too and the zombies in it! Love the diagonal strip of black and the pearls turned orange (I keep forgetting about coloring them with Copics!!)
What a fun Halloween card!

Sheila, this has an air of elegance about it with that pretty frame - if you can say that about a zombie card - lol! Super fun card with the whole zombie crew! Hugz
