Anti-Valentine Contest

2009_365_013 Black Heart Anti-Valentine
This pin-cushion in my entry in the Dabbled Black Heart Anti-Valentine Contest. Oddly enough, I had already made it, along with 2 other black hearts below, for a Ten Two Studios Design Team challenge to make some quick and easy Valentine-ish projects. But as soon as I saw those Harry Clarke images from the Black & White domino sheet, all my anti-romantic tendencies kick in. Also the Milwaukee ATC group's February theme is "Black & White & Red All Over" so I have been thinking in that color scheme lately.

My husband's comment on seeing these: "Should I be getting you psychiatric help?"

Thank you all for your kind words (I'm glad I'm not the only one with a...um...non-traditional? approach to Valentine's Day)

@Lisa - thanks for turning me on to Harry Clarke!
