Bloody Valentine Blog Hop - Day One!

Today is the first day out of 3 of the Smeared & Smudged Forum's Bloody Valentine Blog Hop brought to you by the wonderful artists at Smeared Ink. You should have arrived here from Emjay's blog. If not, start at the beginning of the list to your right so you don't miss any of the awesomely quirky, not your usual Valentines.




My project is a card using two images from Smeared Ink's new Valentine digi set which were printed on watercolor paper, colored with Derwent Inktense pencils, Promarker flesh colors, and finessed with Prismacolor colored pencils. I punched Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo punch from red cardstock, inked with Distress Ink in Black, Fired Brick and Walnut stain, then used clear UTEE over that. The mini hearts were punched from Tacky tape & covered with tiny beads in red. All was mounted on a scrap of skull paper over black alligator skin paper & then attached to a dark pink piece of Bazill CS. I also added some heart clips from Making Memories.

Thanks for looking & hopping with us!!!!
Happy V-Day

  3. Bloody great card;) I'm loving how you colored the hands and heart and the 3D effect you've created and that dripping border of blood...perfect!

    P.S. I was unable to participate in the blog hop so Trisha would be the next person to direct visitors to.
