As always, the weekend brings us my Haunted Design House submission. This week we're working from a Butchered Blueprint.
I have to admit, this is my first time doing a blueprint and I set to work creating. Surprisingly, it came together fairly quickly and wow, it was frightening and not in a good way. Hubby looked at it and went 'huh'. So, for future reference, when the person who loves you most in the world can't think of a single thing to say about your art, perhaps it's time to sleep on it.
And I did - and below is what I came up with.
I rubber stamped my broken doll (unmounted blue rubber) with Memento and colored it with pencils - ugh, brown and blue is the atrocious color combo on the jacket. I mounted him on a bit of doily that I had thrown away because it didn't go through the die machine correctly. Some felt, embroidery floss and a few more buttons and I was set.
The final step was the stick pin in the heart. Sad little thing.
As a bonus for sticking with me this long - here's a close up of the best part of my first attempt - I made the 'blood drop' on the pin with embossing powder. So cool!
Thanks for stopping by!
