Freaky Freebie July Smeared & Smudged and Haunted Design House 171 Challenges

Join the Smeared and Smudged Forum and get a FREE digi!  This month features a Smeared Ink digital image of a sweet gal named Nurse Jenny

See what happens when one of my favorite sites, Haunted Design House, offers a HDH171 Challenge - FREAKER'S FREE FOR ALL.  They get another entry from me!  Okay, this is the last entry for this "dark, Gothic, or Halloween" challenge.
When I first saw her, I loved her huge eyes.  Initially this project was for another Smeared and Smudged challenge, but as we all know the project sometimes takes on a life of its own.  A 1978 song by Robert Palmer came into my head as I was finishing up this page. So I titled my entry after the song "Bad Case Of Loving You".

Nurse Jenny was really needing this crazy tangled heart for herself.   Nurse Jenny is a sweet young candy striper who tends to get a bit obsessive with men ("Doctor, Doctor give me the news...").  In this case she fell in love with a doctor, who does not even know she exists ("...I've got a bad case of loving you...").  As time goes by, Nurse Jenny's dark side must take drastic action...which is not so good for the doctor.  But, in the end, she did get him... and his heart.


All materials and accessories are Stampin' Up!, except for notebook paper, black sharpie, Gesso (white), and straw/hay materials (found at thrift shop).

Scalloped heart was cut from a framelit and Big Shot on Very Vanilla card stock.  I used Crystal Effects to help hold down the straw/hay material. 
I spritzed heart with mixed combos of reinkers, alcohol, and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. 
Gesso was poured over.  I tried to let dry but went ahead and added more spritzes, glitter, and drops of Real Red reinker to heart.

She was colored in with markers and a Blender Pen.
Silver Details on her eyes.
Fussy cut and set inside heart.

Words written with Black Sharpie pen on notebook paper.  Base of 8 1/2" x 11" is Early Espresso card stock.  Stamped blood spatters with stamp from set Gorgeous Grunge in Real Red ink.  Some Washi tape to help give that young girl impression.
