Tragic Love at Simply Steampunk Challenges

It's time for our monthly challenge over at the Simply Steampunk Challenges blog...

Tragic Love is the theme. 

I'm sharing Hades & Persephone 3 by the ever talented artist Abigail Larson. Her images are sold in digi format over at Simply Betty Stamps

The heart easel card is by Bird's Cards and the Steampunk Heart is a file I created and offered in a previous post for free. Both were cut using my Silver Bullet Professional. Flowers and accessories are from my stash.

Copics used: 

So grab a steampunk image and play along...if you choose a Simply Betty digi, that will be even better...but not required. Use blood splatters, torn hearts, sad love images.  Show us your interpretation of a Tragic love, not a happy one this time around...remember Hades and Persephone, Romeo and Juliet, all the stories that weren't that happy!

 Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed and creative day!

Until later,
