Heart of gloom

Hello everyone!  So how was your day?  Mine was spent partly in meetings... but  during my lunch hour I made an awesome discovery.  I was checking out the blogs that I follow and came across the blog of Jenn Borjesson totally love her stuff and started following her after I discovered the Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge.  She had done a fabulous little creation using a digi from Creepie cute stamps!!!  WOW I fell in love.  So of course I bought a couple.

I was super happy when I got home to have them.  So I used one to make a little ATC since I really wanted to play in some challenges and this image was just perfect for what I had in mind.
I put a playing card beside it because I think when there's just one you don't  really get the idea of the size...  To make this I used all scraps of paper.  I used my large(well the smallest) deckled rectangles.  I used an embossing folder from Tim Holtz to which I added some black soot distress ink.  I then used my Tattered Angel mist in Cherry Tomato.  Love the look that it gave to the paper, you don't  see it much here but it shimmers! I added a little heart charm and a brad with a black gem on it.

Here's a closer look at the ATC I used a wonderful sentiment from Create with tlc.  I thought it was perfect for this, I have used it before but just love it.  This is the 1st time that I color hair in reds ;))) so much fun.
And a closer look still at the digi

It was soooo much fun to do!!!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Creepie cute challenge - My creepy valentine 
  2. Wicked wednesday atc - Valentine/Love
  3. Smudgy antics - Beating heart atc (well not sure how much it's beating after having a pin in it... but isn't it fab?!? )
Thank you so much Jenn for making me discover those new digis ;))))  Just my cup of tea.
