Bring the Heat Blog Hop -- Post #2

See the post below for all the Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop information!

Here's my second card for the hop! Two posts in one day. Wow. Shock-a-roo!

Devilish Daphne (VB-121-M) lives on page 6 of Third Coast's Halloween'07 Supplement. She was stamped and colored with Copic markers, masked with Winsor & Newton masking fluid, airbrushed Y13 over the entire image panel, then airbrushed a few different Y and YR markers through the Flames stencil by The Crafter's Workshop. When I was done airbrushing the flames, I added some Black Soot Distress flames to add that sooty look. I peeled off the mask and added Spica glitter pen accents to her pitchfork, horns, and shoes. Glaze pen was added to her shoes and pitchfork to add dimension and shine. I drew a line in so it would like as if she were walking a tightrope over the flames of Hades.

The Thermometers (FA-517-J), from page 17 of the Spring '12 catalog were stamped with Onyx VersaFine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They were colored with Copic markers. Red Spica glitter pen was added to the mercury tube. and then Glaze pen was added to make 'em dimensional and shiny.

The background of the card was airbrushed using the same colors as above, though I cheated and started with some yellow cardstock.

The sentiment was computer generated.
