Hot as Hell

Hiya folks!

I wish it was hot as hell up here in chilly Scotland. Spring seems to have run away again and isn't set to improve much this week according to the weather man yesterday. Damn that arctic air!

Well, we can always pop across to Haunted Design House for a weekly fill of HOT creations for the Macabre Monday challenges! This week our theme is:

"Hot as Hell in Here"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that represents flames or something that requires heat; burning, scorching, wet embossing.
Or just go the literal route and take us on a tour of Hell.

So I dug up some firey background images on google search and used them on my creation, along with some red organza ribbon and red pearls.

 The text is computer generated and printed out along with the strip of dp.

The image is a new one I managed to whip up over the weekend, named appropriately enough
'Fire Woman' 
(are you singing that Cult song now? lol).
She will be in the Delicious Doodles Shop on Wednesday along with another image I finished up last week.

This is a sketched style image with shading already done, as I didn't have time to do a line drawing with all the tidying up that needs doing on those. I coloured her red to print out twice for my layering, then added some yellow and orange with the youngest daughters felt tips. I don't have any of those fancy markers that I see around in blogland!! My first layer is in a red border, and the second layer is fussy cut and raised on foam pads.

We have a couple of newbies in the dungeons this week (waves hi!)
Hope you guys have fun with the minions here in Hell (mwahahaha!!)
And I hope you can join us too folks!

Some challenges -

Crafty Emma - Anything Goes
Rogue Redhead - Warm Tones for a Male (hope this counts)
Daring Cardmakers - Fussy Cutting
Forever Night - Anything Goes

You don't need any fancy markers you rock your cards using anything you get your hands on which is much more impressive. Love your new image you sure can come up with the goodies hehe. Gorgeous card xx

Gorgeous hun and save your pennies (unless you really don't have anything better to buy), the pens are fab, but tbh with your skill you can use so many other mediums and achieve a fab result that I'd not bother.
