Splodgy mess

All Dressed Up new releases for February have you seen them?  Wendy's outdone herself again!

For this bit of inspiration I got to play with Love You, it started out as a card but I loved it so much when I'd finished it I decided to frame it and make it into a picture.

So here's what I've done and used.  Lots of layers and very mess ones too :D

Papers are all from Lili of the Valley, I've also used some black and two different shades of red card stock.  There's also some chipboard shapes in here.

Here's a bit of a close up.

The red splotches are acrylic paint that I've splattered onto the card.  I've also used some white gesso and dabbed that around.

Here's the image coloured with Copics.  I've kept a black white and red theme throughout.

This is a close up of the flower section.  There were all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

And here's the finished product.  It just fits nicely into a 8" by 8" square frame :D
Oh and the only other embellishment I used not mentioned was a white clay heart.

All that's left to say is don't forget you've only a day or so left to enter the Hearts Facebook challenge AND we've an Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up image on the blog.

Que bonitos colores has puesto en la tarjeta. El digi quedó muy bien, el negro no es facil de manejar cuando estas iluminando y a ti te quedó muy bien.

Gracias por participar con nosotras en CORROSIVE CHALLENGE BLOG

That beautiful colors you have put on the card. The Digi was very well, black is not easy to handle when these illuminating and to you it was very well.
