That's the name of this great image from Tellen's Designs. There I was - making some of those "C" cards for others. This image popped into my head as an ideal candidate for the Lil' Lurid and Lovesick challenge over on Haunted Design House this week.
Not much to it really... A young beautiful girl swooning over an ogre who doesn't care.....

The sentiments stamped down the sides are from the Lil' Grumpies set available from Smeared Ink.
It was all coloured in promarkers with some watered down distress inks and some metalic paints to add that slimy look to the ogre. This was backed onto some red coredinations that I distressed ... a lot..The little hearts have been sitting in a little box in the bottom of my drawer for what seems like an age. Stuck them on using microdots then added a shiny brad from stash.
Then onto deep green card base.


  1. Love your inking, Helen - it's gorgeous and love the story - beautiful girl in love with the ogre! I love your imagination with the love story and the hearts make it all so real, doesn't it? Very clever! LOL@ the stamped sayings - very, very cute! ;-)

  2. Now there is a love that is truly desrving of the name loveSICK :P Fabulous card Helen, thanks so much for joining in with our Lil Lurid and Lovesick challenge at HDH, and good luck! :D

  3. This reminds me of that Star Wars scene. Fabulous coloring.
