So what in the heck is Day of the Dead?? Well I looked it up and it is a two-day event celebrated mostly in Mexico and Central America on November 1st and 2nd, where it incorporates All Saints' Day and the tradition of honoring your relatives that have passed on. COOL! So celebrating death and honoring our past... doesn't that mean ZOMBIES?! Here are the TWO cards I created both using Vera Lane Studios "Quirky Zombie Couple" images!
I created my own Zombie Skin formula with my Copic markers to get just that correct shade of greeny/yellow that I imagine rotting skin has... and I am sharing with all of you Here: Use YG93 and YG61 for the shadows, YG91 for the overall skin tone and blend everying with a light coating of YG21 to add that sickly yellow/green hue...
But seriously... a Zombie couple with a Zombie Cat... how cool is THAT?!
