Make It Crafty - Sketch

Morning/afternoon/evening to you...depending on where in the world you are! :) The lovely Zoe and 'Make it Crafty' are based in Australia, so are at the other end of the day to me...but apart from posting times, it really doesn't make any difference at all :)
We have a fabulous sketch for you this time...and if you add a bit of vintage/distressing that would be even better!! Having had a hectic week with a poorly Dad, my brain cell (singular!) seems to be under strain...and I neglected to read the vintage bit until adding the final charm!! Eeeek!! So, with scissors in hand the edges got a bit of distressing...but I'll also class my Zombie as 'vintage' 'cause he looks as if he's been around for a while!!! Lol
I have merged the Crooked Picket Fence image with the Halloween Zombie (quick...he's a freebie at the moment!! ) image, in Word. I then made a mask for them and using my new 'colour duster' brushes, made the background. I also used a 1 1/4 circle punch to mask the corner to make a moon, then used my new Mica powders to fill it in.
You have until the 9th November to enter ...and the winner will get 2 brand new RUBBER Santa stamps!!!!!
Have a fab day x
