day 3 of S&S Bloody Valentine hop

Everyone still here? Anyone wanting to join in the hop that hasn't arrived from Alison's blog - The blog roll can be found up top. Some awesome artwork has been shown in this "Alternative/Different Valentine's hop" that only Smeared and Smudged do as far as I'm aware.

My day 3 project went horribly wrong. I forgot to transpose my image, doooohhhhhhhh. I ended up having to scrape it all off my canvas and start again. Hence this is as far as I have got.

As I have to go to work today there'll be no time to complete :( It's an 8" canvas and the main image is from Smeared Ink. The spatters are from another SI stamp using fired brick DI and all the drips are from another stamp (no name)

Sooooo another quickie to fill the gap
Not bloody at all really, but I did use the same "deep inside my heart" digi. Just goes to show the versitility of some stamps. It's what you put with it that makes the complete picture.
A fatbook page
This time in blues and purples. The image is from the "French Fairies" set from Smeared Ink.
I superimposed and flipped the image onto the "deep inside my heart" image. The fairy was coloured with promarkers. the leaves have been heat embossed in plum and some glamour dust added to the wings. The little tear drop gems were red before colouring again with a promarker.
The writing in blue gel pel to complete. Mounted on textured purple cs from stash.
Now it's about time you headed of to Jane's blog and see what she has made to inspire us all.
