"Fire" and "Ice" Elemental Cards for Smudgy Antics!

Howzit Friends!
Happy Monday to you, I hope you all had a great weekend :0)
It's now week 2 of Smudgy Antics current challenge "Fire and Ice" and I'm sharing two cards I made using Smeared Ink's October exclusive Rubber Club set called Elementals.

 "Fire" was stamped onto watercolour paper with Fired Brick Distress Ink and the colouring created by applying water to the inked image.  I blended Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Ink to give the burnt look and took it one step further by actually burning the top edge of the image after I fussy cut it out.  I also added Diamond Stickles glitter glue to give the image a 'hot' glimmer of light.  The background paper is also from Smeared Ink, they now carry an awesome range of digi papers, this one is from the Vintage Grunge set! 
 "Ice" was created in the same way but this time I used Distress Ink Peacock Feathers for the stamping and watercolour effect and applied Shaded Lilac to the edges of the fussy cut out image.  I used Icicle Stickles glitter glue to give the image the frosty glimmer and for the "Ice" element I applied Distress Crackle Clear Rocky Candy paint to everywhere except her face and shoulder.  The background paper is from Smeared Ink's Honour the Dead set!

 Both background papers were distressed with Tim's Paper Distresser tool before being adhered to black card which was then also distressed.  I embellished both with colour coordinating ribbons, paper flowers, brads and bling.  I hope I've inspired you to create some Fire and Ice projects of your own and look forward to seeing your creations over at Smudgy Antics!
Before you go I just want to remind you about DominoART's challenges too!  The current one is Any Game Goes with Any Theme!  If you've been wanting to try your hand at some altered game art then this is the perfect challenge to get your feet wet so dig out your bag of miscellaneous game pieces and come and play with us!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Wow!! Just love what you did on each card. So appreciate the work and time on each of these. Great burnt edges on the fire card. Love the bits of sparkle and that new SI digi paper is awesome on each. Wonderful idea for the crackle on her hair for the ice. Such inspiration, x2!
