Smeared and Smudged Forum Hop!

Hey All!!  Welcome, welcome to another amazing Smeared and Smudged Forum Hop!  I am always amazed at the delightful array of projects that are on display during these fantastic hops!  You won't want to miss one single stop along the way!

Before we get started, you should be coming here from Steph's blog!!  If you happened upon here "just because", I'm so glad to have you here, but you'll want to start at Terra's blog so you get to see everyone's gorgeous works!! 

My creation today is using the brand new "Heart Wings" digital set available at the Smeared Ink shop.  It's a brilliant set with so many possibilities!!! 

My creation today is a thank you card for a darling friend.  My cool blue base measures at 6 x 4.25".  My second layer is a piece of DP from a matte stack that I gave to my daughter.  It was originally bright pink with flowers on it.  She painted the entitre 12x12 sheet with blue sparkly Colorations watercolor paint and gave it back to me to use in one of my creations.  I used bright purple thread and stitched it down using a zig zag stitch. 
My main layer uses the 'baby hearts' image colored with my Prismacolor and Copic markers.  I trimmed the corners using my SU! ticket punch.  I then coated the edges in purple Colorbox ink and stitched the edges with the same purple thread. 
I used the "Gear Heart" as my popped up image in opposing color wheel colors - purple and orange.  I colored the heart, glittered up the wings and heat embossed the center.  I trimmed it out and popped it up on 3-D foam adhesive.  I used two scrapbook stickers, the circle and heart.  The circle has a bump out on each side welcoming embellishments.  I used two purple, sparkly SU! brads to anchor the circle sticker. 

My sentiment is from PTI - Mega Mixed Messages.  It is stamped in the same purple, Colorbox ink and heat embossed.

I do hope you've enjoyed my creation today and have been inspired to create your own. 
Please keep on hopping to my darling friend Alison's blog to see what deliciousness she has in store for you! 

Crafty Hugs!
