Fire and Ice with Smudgy Antics

Smudgy Antics has a new challenge starting today.


We want to see how you interpret this. The DT have come up with a few ideas, but we want to be inspired by you as well.

I made a simple AJ page using two of the images from the Elemental Goddesses set.
For those lucky people in the Smeared Ink Rubber Club, these stamps should be hitting your doorsteps very soon if they haven't already done so.
Fire and water were the images chosen. Coloured with promarkers before given their separate treatments.
The Fire Goddess was burnt round the edges. An obvious procedure I think. The frozen water goddess was sealed first with Decoart sealer before painting on Rock Candy. When this was dry some weathered wood DI sponged on lightly and another coat of sealer.
The paper used is digital from Smeared Ink's "Slasher" set.  The colour was altered digitally diagonally before printing.
Cut to size 8"x8" to fit in my journal. The "Fire" word is from the same Elementals set the "Ice" is just a set of  alphabet stamps I have.

It looks simple now I look at it again.
