Hot As Hell!

Haunted Design House theme this week 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;
burningscorching, wet embossing.
Or just go the literal route and take us on a tour of Hell.
I went with the "Hells' Angel" view. Well - I am an Angel by marriage and one of my nicknames is Hell. So what else could I do?

The images on the front of this "bookmark card" are from Jem's Designs, Gothic CD. The skellie rider has been decoupaged up and bits have been high-lighted with glossy accents. The "flower" is just gathered ribbon stuck to a card base with more ribbon to neaten. The image is more decoupaging and then UTEE dipped.
A little skellie charm added.

The flame BP borrowed from google images. Matted onto old gold then the black card base. The TH edge punch cut in red and orange/yellow core card. I thought this gave more of a flaming look. The Harley Davidson Eagle was rescued from the front of son's old wallet before being thrown.

Where's the stamping? you might ask. That's on the inside.
This is a birthday card to the b/f  fiance of a dear friend. It's going to be a bit late in the giving though as we've not seen them in a few weeks.

Smeared Ink's Celebration Grumpie. Stamped in white on the black card base and in "waterfall" big and juicy on the other side, next to the detachable bookmark

So now it's your turn to show us what you got.
Get those sparks flying and link up so your flaming artwork can come and be admired.

A challenge or two that I am entering this into
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Decoupage
