You're A Great Friend, but...

Hi All!  I've got a little something different for you today- not my normal bright and cheerful card, lol.  I've long been a fan of Cheri's digi stamp sentiments over at Graphicat Designs...they are off key, funny and sometimes a little bit naughty- exactly how my sense of humor works!  I've had this particular sentiment for a while but wasn't quite sure how I was going to use it.  So when I saw the challenge over at Saturated Canary was for Black, White and One Other Color my mind instantly went to Krista's zombie stamps of her kids and this card was born :)   I colored this image called Zombie Niamh with my Copics using mostly my Toner and Warm Grey's and some greens.  I was a little uncertain if I could pull the coloring off the way I wanted but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I'm not really good at doing dark or morbid cards, and my sentiment lent itself to something more on the lighthearted side, so I used a black and green color pallet but chose patterned paper from MME that wasn't to dark and still used the things I love like bling and flowers to balance it all out.  It was fun to step out side my comfort zone a little and I'm so glad I got to use this sentiment finally because it literally makes me giggle every time I read it :)  Mostly I'm just hoping that my coloring and card do Krista's image justice because I know how much she loves zombies so I want to do her proud!  As usual, thanks so much for stopping by to visit- I hope you like it!
