Dead of winter/Snow Poe

Yay! It's the first Smeared and Smudged member hop of the year. The theme is Dead of Winter, to start I was struggling for ideas and then I was listening to the world war Z audio book and it was the part where they talk about the zombies being frozen into the ground with just their upper body still moving. I knew then exactly what I was going to make.  Many of you already know how much I love to alter books, this was one that was starting to fall apart so rather than throw it away I turned it into something fun. The stamp I used is Half Zombie from the build a graveyard set, I also used one of the digital papers from Smeared Ink's Icy Paper set.





I am entering this into the following challenges:

It's also the start of week 2 in the Snow Poe challenge over at Quoth the Raven I have made a card this week, I started by embossing the card front, then I used a stencil to add some brown ink. The STamp I've used is the rubber Poe from the Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven set.
