corrosive challenge this weeks and 3previous weeks

The challenge this week over at CORROSIVE ( link in my side bar..... still cant put them in my text!) is LOVE....
I toyed with the idea of doing a lovey-dovey atc but thats not really me so i came up with this... love really does hurt and if youre not with the person you love , for what ever reason, it hurts as much as any physical pain.... oh dear listen to me.... anyway its all stamped and masked, coloured with inks and of cause a smude of black around the edges.... although i used pink and brown.... not a combination i use often.
Please go and check out the other DT's work and join in with us this week..... you dont have to do hearts and flowers, you might be like me a think of love differently.
Below are the items i made for the challenges but never had time to post on my blog.... i'd like to thank Janet for bearing with me .... so please scroll down to see the last 3 weeks creations.
This was for 'fancy folds'..... i'm no card maker but i made this spring card and added flowers!
Ok so its a skull but its done in blue... and only a little black ink on the edges.

This owl is a digi image from our sponsors that week and i wracked my brains for something different to do with a digi image.... anyhow i traced it on to thin metal... actually recycled from a roast-veg container and embossed it... i added some red glaze on the hearts and was asked in the comments how was it done.... so now you all know.... its just traced!

This atc was made for the 'distressing' week.... yep it was a distressing week! It's stamped and coloured with ink, then i burnt the edges... careful that i didnt let my girls see me do it.... i can just image them... oh god what a thought!... then i mounted it on to roughed up black card.
Thanks for taking time to visit me.... and i do hope you join in with this weeks challenge.
