Smudgy Antics Challenge Broken Heart #2

"We have all been there...crying our eyes out because somebody we loved broke our hearts.  If you haven't had a broken heart, I'm sure you helped one of your best friends mend their broken heart or watched your children get their hearts broken. This fortnight we want you ladies and gents to create a project depicting a broken heart or being broken hearted."  

Smudgy Antics Challenge is still open for 1 more day!  Get crafty and get your entry in.   Broken Heart is the challenge.  Click HERE and HERE to see what awesome projects the DT had created.  I was inspired the first time by the DT and the second by an entry done by CARLA

All Good Deets Must Come To An End
Image is from Delicious Doodles.  Printed out on copy paper.  

So hard to see, but the heart is puffed a little bit because I added some old dryer sheets under it to help puff it up.

Heart was colored with Cherry Cobble marker.  Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint over entire heart.

Added Crystal Effects over to make look vein-ie and organ like.
Drips and blood pool also have Crystal Effects.

Black Sharpie to go around heart.

Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate markers for rose.  Pistachio Pudding and Smoky Slate marker for stem and leaves.  White marker for highlights.

I masked heart and stamped Parlor Prints in Crushed Curry and Sanded in Cajun Craze, both Stampin' Up!  (retired).  Matted on Crushed Curry card stock and then on Basic Black card stock card.

Saying is from Loving Thoughts stamp set, Stampin Up! (current) and stamped in Black Staze On.
I used sharpie to re-write Never and cross out Always. 

All materials used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
