Smudgy Antics and Bloody Valentine blog hop

Before I start with todays post I just want to say that I was totally blown away by the entries in the last challenge. Well done to everyone that took the time to enter and congrats to the winner.

This fortnights challenge at smudgy antics is to make an ATC with the theme beating hearts. I've not made all that many ATC's before so I do find it a little out of my comfort zone but this is what I came up with. 

I used kraft card to make my ATC then heated up some red embossing powder with some utee and let it drip into splodges on the card. When it was dry I sprayed over it all with some glimmer mists from my stash. 
The senti I have hand wrote and stuck on. The heart is from the quoth the raven set  (which is this months rubber stamp set, if you are still thinking about getting this one I'd highly recommend it) and was hand stamped and coloured with promarkers then covered with utee. 

This is also my day one piece for the Bloody Valentine blog hop if you haven't started at the top of the list please do and work your way down, I promise you won't be dissapointed by the talent in this hope.

Under the sea

I felt the need to get messy today and all the other projects I am working on are in different stages and all drying so I started something new, I wanted something that I could start and finish in one sitting. I decided on this mixed media banner. I have used various ephemera that I had which matched the under the sea theme and then I stamped up one of the stamps from Smeared Ink's Abyss rubber set. She has been coloured in with spectrum noir markers. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: - Animal Instincts (lots of fishes)
