I'm not saying I believe in voodoo, and I'm not saying I don't.
I will say that I get a kick out of the idea. I have a Valentine Swatch watch that came with a voodoo doll. It's one of my favorite possessions. It came complete with pins, but I have as yet to stick it. I like to keep my loved in line with just the mere threat of its existence.
As soon as I saw this stamp I had to have it. She's a little madcap creature isn't she? I like that about her. I thought she needed to be distressed and I think I should have done some more but I have this fear of overdoing it and ruining all the work that I put into the coloring. I stamped it and colored it about a week or so ago with the plan to make a Valentine card for my hubster (yes, I am a bit twisted, but he's known that for ages). When I saw this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #16 - Be a Little Ripper it was time to use it. I just needed to figure out what way I was going to rip it. I picked the layout from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #39. Well, Priscilla, you wondered what it would be, so here it is, howl do you like it? I kept the heart shape, after all, it's a Valentine and just ripped away around the image and then ripped the mat. I like ripping and tearing and smudging, it's such fun. I know a lot of people are afraid to rip, if you're one of them just let go and tear that paper up. You'll be glad you tried it. Next I sponged with Ranger's Distress Ink Tea Dye and Scattered Straw. I used both inks on all the papers. For the embellies I used two Jolee stickers and covered a SU chipboard heart with Glitzy Glitter.
This week's Allsort's Challenge #38 is Get Distressed with Button/s and a Bow. I already had the ribbon and distressing, all I needed to do for this challenge was to make it a buttony bow and who doesn't like a buttony bow? I dug threw my stash and found some Making Memories buttons, I picked this one because the pattern on it resembled the pattern on the dp. I tied it onto the button with some SU twine.
