Zombie Memory Dex Card Tutorial

Hello Tombow fans, Serena from @SerenaBeeCreative here! This week, the Tombow Design Team is creating projects inspired by emojis. I chose my favorites: the black heart and the zombie emojis! Today, we will be creating a zombie memory dex card. Let’s get started!

To begin, I selected this zombie digital stamp set from Vera Lane Studio. I decided to color it with the Irojiten Colored Pencils. They are perfect for layering and blending colors together.

The color combos I used are:

  • Skin: Verbena, Lupine, Cascade, Lilac and Horizon Blue
  • Hair: Orchid Pink, Cameo Pink and Lilac
  • Dress: Taupe, Ivory Black and Ecru for the scallops.

TIP: If you get some color over the lines, simply remove it with the MONO Zero Eraser!

I like to use a circular motion when I’m coloring and when I layer on various colors. It helps to create an effortless blend.

Here’s a glimpse at how the colors I used for her skin look all blended together!

Once you have your zombie image all colored up, the next step is fussy cutting. I love using the MONO Twin Permanent Marker to line the edges when I fussy cut. This helps clean up your edges and allows the colors to really stand out!

For the base of this memory dex card, I used a decorative circle die and my manual die cutting machine. I used one of my Black Hearts Pattern Papers from my shop Papercakes.

I made sure to leave the bottom edge straight on my memory dex card so I could use the memory dex punch to create the holes.

Now, it’s time to put it all together using the MONO Dots Adhesive.

Once I adhered the zombie to the memory dex card, I added a chipboard sticker and some iridescent gem stickers to further decorate the card.

For an extra little something, I added glitter glue in “Stardust” to really make her shine!
