Smudgy Antics Challenge - Red Hot

For the Challenge sponsored by Smeared Ink this week, the theme was Red Hot. I chose to do a tag in honor of Valentine's Day, with a hot blooded twist.


I took a shipping tag, colored it with Fired Brick & Rusty Hinge Distress Inks along the edge, then cut a piece of DCWV's "Street Lace" paper slightly smaller. The image is from Smeared Ink's new My Bloody Valentine digi set & I just love the nails digging into the heart . I colored the hand & heart with Derwent Inktense pencils, then used Ranger's Glossy Accents on the heart & blood. I punched 2 hearts of different sizes from foil, as well as 2 from Tacky Tape. I embossed the foil hearts, and added red micro beads & glitter to the tape hearts. I also added some drippy blood punched using Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo punch at the bottom, and a piece of wordy ribbon at the top.

Thanks for looking.
