Smudgy Antics Challenge - Broken Heart

How great has 31 Days Of Halloween been?  I have been having a blast commenting and ogling all the great projects!  If you have not been there yet, start HERE!

I have created this little wall hang for the Smudgy Antic's blog which has a challenge going on right now called Broken Heart.  "This fortnight we want you ladies and gents to create a project depicting a broken heart or being broken hearted."  Poor girl has been broken hearted all her life and it has followed her to the afterlife.  She is forever caged.

Sadden Deets
I have used a digital stamp from Lacy Sunshine, Lady Heather's Curiosities Collection, called Eloise. 
Aqua Painter and inks to color.
I fussy cut her out then layered her onto another print out of her.  This was so I could cut off parts to help give a little 3D effect with her cage w/ broken heart.
I cropped the original pic and focused on the cage.  Printed out and fussy cut so that the it was just the cage itself.
Silver Sparkle, Cherry Cobble, and Dazzling Details (like Stickles) on heart, eyes, and cage.
Stamp in background is from Glorious Grunge by Stampin' Up!
Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, White Organza Ribbon, and Silver 1/8" Ribbon for bow.

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