Valentine backlash

Ok, I admit it, I've had enough of love and hearts and pink, so I'm delighted to tell you that today's Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House is the perfect excuse to let off a little steam. The challenge is called Love Bites.
We know there are dozens and dozens of challenge blogs out there that are challenging you to create loved-up sweet pink goo, and we want you to give your dark side a chance to bite back! Forbidden love, twisted desires, passionate revenge. Let your inner demon out and bludgeon that smug little cherub to death with his own arrows :P

We're sponsored this week by Strange Skin, and I've used two of their images in my creation, Bride of Frankenstein and Heart Throb. Backing paper is from the new Wild at Heart set from Crafty Chaos Designs.
Did you think I wouldn't be able to fit many challenges with this anti-Valentine creation? Well, think again, because there is, after all, a heart featured :P I'm fully aware that this will NOT be what most of you had in mind when setting the challenges, but it is at least different, right? So, with that said, these are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Paper Minutes - followed the sketch
Lollipop Crafts - your favourite coluring medium, It's digital for me, I can't get over how much more fun crafting has become for me since I started olouring on my pc.
Whoopsi Daisy - free and easy
Crafty Cardmakers - hearts
The Crafty Pad - hearts
Do You Stack Up - ribbon
Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
2 Sisters Challenge - hearts
Crazy 4 Challenges - hearts
The Stamp Man - hearts
Penny's Challenges - hearts
Stampin' Royalty - hearts
For Fun - hearts
Cards and More - hearts
Papertake Weekly - hearts

Phew, now I've got that out of my system I can look forward to half-price chocolate tomorrow :P
