May Monster Madness

The party is here!

For my contribution to the proceedings, not only have I been sharpening my fangs,
and rummaging through the cellar in search of that fine vintage blood wine,
but I've also been creating a little something...

 It started with a glass ball, which is actually
a 3.5" vase for holding small-stemmed flowers.

 I poured a little garden soil into it, and spread that across the base.

 Next I added (with great difficulty) a clump of live moss, and
pressed this firmly into the soil, before sprinkling it with water.

I then moved onto the next step...

 This little lady was pretty 'armless' when I found her...

 But now, with the help of acrylic paint and
permanent markers, she's a brain-devouring Zombie.

 I popped her into her new home.  She seemed to
like it, but there was still something missing.

 A friend...

 Did I say friend?

I meant corpse.  Her death was a tragic one, and
now she lies bleeding, with her own heart in her hands.

 Yes, the perfect addition.  I think Zombie likes her.
I also added a couple of ammolite stones, to brighten the place up a bit.

 And tied a ribbon to the top, so it can be hung anywhere.

 I hope you like the Zombie Jungle.

There are other designs available in My Etsy Shop.

I can't wait to see everyone else's contributions to the party!

Many thanks to all the party hosts...
