So, how good are you with a butterfly net?  Right now I've got a horde of love sick Grumpies running amok on my LeighSBDesigns blog during the finale of Smeared Ink's Bloody Valentine blog hop and I'd appreciate your help in rounding them all up!  But first let's take a closer look at Love Hurts Grumpie so you know what kind of beastie you're looking for and there's another one hiding out at Smudgy Antics too so see if you can catch him as well ;0)

Love Hurts Lil Grumpie
I used super-sized white dominoes to create my balloon toting horde which feature Smeared Ink's Love Lil Grumpies rubber stamp set.  The balloons I drew myself and the text on each one is also from the Love set!

I used Jet Black StazOn Ink to stamp the images onto the dominoes and heat set before colouring the images with various Sharpie markers using my signature Sharpie Domino Queen technique.  I edged and coloured the sides of each domino with a black Sharpie marker.  The balloons were drawn on Neenah Solar White cardstock and the text was stamped on each balloon with Tuxedo Black Memento ink before I coloured them with Copic markers.  The balloon string is black craft wire adhered to the backs of each domino and balloon and randomly bent and twirled for a fun and quirky look.  I took photos of the altered dominoes first before applying Judikins Diamond Glaze to protect the stamped surface because it's tricky to get a good photo without the glare on the glaze.

Have a great weekend!
