S&S Bloody Valentine Book - Page Two "Obsession"

Hello Friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Smeared and Smudged "Bloody Valentine" Blog Hop!  Here's Page 2 of my 3 page book featuring stamps from Smeared Ink.  The inspiration for today's page is the poem "The Bride of Corinth" by Goethe 1797.  FYI, I managed to get better photos of yesterday's Page 1 if you'd like to go back for another look see ;0)

I pretty much used all the same supplies I listed yesterday for Page 1 so now I'd like to tell you a bit about how I made them.  All the pages started out with an ATC sized piece of white cardstock but then I treated each one slightly differently.  The Page 1 ATC was done in the same way I described for the "Beating Hearts" ATC cover I shared on Sunday but today's ATC didn't get the blood splats added.  The image from Smeared Ink's "As Death" rubber set was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink and the devil girl was treated with a coat of Fired Brick Distress Marker before applying Inkssentials Matte Accents to make her stand out.  The text was handwritten with a white gel pen.  I used my Perfect Layers tools to cut all the black and red mats.  I stamped the word 'Obsession" in White Cloud VersaMagic ink along the bottom edge of the ATC and around the edges of the smaller black mat.  The edges of all the ATCs were then treated with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I stamped the Winged Heart from Smeared Ink's  Heart Wings rubber set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a scrap piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured it with Copics R39, R46 and Fired Brick Distress Marker.  I fussy cut out the image and coated the entire piece with Judikins Diamond Glaze then adhered it to the page with a dab of Silicone dimensional glue.

Thanks for visiting and leaving all your wonderful comments!  See you tomorrow for Page 3 and the finished book ;0)  Now continue on your creepy hop if you dare! 
Blog Roll is there on the right!
