Have you ever had a boyfriend carve your initials in a tree???
I think that has gone away much like a lot of things.
I remember walking through the woods as a child
and once in a while stumbling across
a tree that had been carved with the young loves initials.
I would wonder if that was sort of a right of passage.
To sort of hold the bond together.
I'm sure like a lot of young love it didn't last.....
after all it wasn't written in "stone".
This is what inspired my card.
It's a challenge at Haunted Design House.
I'm not sure if it the young loves blood
or the tree itself from the mutilation that
took place upon it.
I used a kraft cardstock card base and then used some brown color core-dinations cs and ran it thru the embossing machine with the wood grain folder.
Sanded it with a sanding block to achieve the bark look.
I cut out the heart and the wording with an
exacto knife to create the carved look.
I hand cut the 'blood drips' with red cs and
applied crystal effects to make it appear wet.
I love how it turned out.
Make like a tree and leaf ....
so you can also enter the challenge.
Until later, 'bud'dies.........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!
