MY DARK VALENTINE - DAY 4


Hello Peeps,
Well - that schmaltzy time has passed for another year.  YaY :-)
 I am delighted to be playing in this great Hop hosted by LEIGH and giving my darker side of Valentine's Day a bit of a shake up LoL
We have a fabulous 5 days of darker schtuff to see and I hope that some of you will come and play along with us :-D


For today's piece I have made a sort of shadow box from cardboard. I painted it with texture paste first and then used some sprayed paint and tulle, with a lovely sort of feathered cord stuff.... looks a bit like teeny tinsel. I was aiming for a sort of "rust" effect but it didn't quite come off right  :-D  Then I splattered it all with 'fake' blood. The winged hearts are stamps from SMEARED INK (no longer trading) with an image from LEIGH SB DESIGNS - Ode to Poe in the centre. I used just the face from Leigh's awesome Freebie - POE LOVE.
The silk orchid is from my local Greek 1 euro shop.




I also have these to show you. I made them previously and have used IKEsART images " Love is Blind " and " Muse 1 ".

 Love is Blind " using scraps from the bits box and border punches, flowers and googly eyes. The image was coloured digitally. She was then matted and layered onto white card which I splattered with fake blood and border punched.


Muse 1 " Tag using embossed card, jute, die cut hearts, lace and button from my local store. The image was coloured with Promarkers. The Font used is called 'Blood'.



I am working on showing 2 pieces for our final day tomorrow.

Challenges I am entering:

Gorgeous Poe piece. Has a patina that looks like it may have been forgotten in an attic for awhile. Love your embellies and stamps and I dare say that orchid is a bit "provocative." Gorgeous past makes, as well. Especially love the sentiment on the last. May have to file that away for future use, if I may. xxD
