Beating Hearts ATC Challenge At Smudgy Antics



The theme at Smudgy Antics this fortnight is
 an ATC (Artist Trading Card size 3.5 x 2.5 inches) 
 challenge with a theme of
Beating Hearts
Visitors of a nervous or delicate disposition need not proceed further to read the details!
 
 I have used a digital image, ghoulie witch, from
and also rubber stamps with a heart and words from a set from

I resized the ghoulie witch in Craft Artist Professional 2,  coloured it with Promarker pens, cut 
it out then attached it to the ATC with a little spring.
( I had bought several of these little gizmos ages ago but after using one or two I lost them but last night when I was looking for little metal hearts I found one! woo! hoo! I hope I find the rest soon. :)

I used a white base ATC and stamped the words "Broken" and "Heart" and attached the ghoulie with the spring. I decided it was a heart stomper ghoul, leaving no heart unbroken. I stamped a heart with wings removed the wings (no one was harmed during this) and attached the heart with foam for dimension. I coloured little silver toned metal hearts red and added these. All the hearts are being stomped on and that is not red boots the ghoul is wearing!! mwah ha ha ha!!
Around the perimeter is written the words 
that the heart stomper recites while it undertakes its
bloody task:
"You will stop beating and break
For I am the heart stomper"
Because of the spring gizmo you can have a moving ghoul!

 I am not having much luck with a good pic and think I may have dropped my trusty sureshot one too many times! I am going to try again and will need to post whatever happens owing to time constraints.
 All The Best

  3. This is a fabulously fun ATC Vee. I'm not sure about "stomping" but I think my heart would be stopping if I saw your ghoulie. It's a brilliant idea to put him on a spring x
