Love Hurts Heart Hanger - Bloody Valentine Hop

Day One - Smeared & Smudged Bloody Valentine Hop

This wooden heart is about 6 inches across. I painted it red and then sanded and inked the edges to distress it a bit. The image is called "holding heart" from the Smeared Ink Bloody Valentine set. I colored the image with pencils and blended. I used nail polish on the blood drips and glossy accents on the lighter part of the heart. It is attached to the design paper with foam dots for dimension.

This creation is amazing Wendy. Gosh, I wish I had a better word - striking! The image of the hands is SO well colored...and to use nail polish is brilliant. I love that you put it on wood - something different. How great to be able to hang this piece of art on the Bloody day of Love! oh, p.s. thanks with your help with the link. Hugzz, Samara xox

I am going in order and I am so glad to finally have someone else who didn't make a paper craft. Don't get me wrong, I love making cards, but I see mixed media and solid structures for this hop.
I love anything dripping out of hands. I did water one time. New inspiration oh ya
