Dante's hot in here


As you may have noticed on my woyww pic, I have been playing with alcohol inks, I was looking through the blogs and wound up at the haunteddesignhouse this site appeals to my darker side, I love all things gothic, horror and a little bit not the norm in the crafting world. Their challenge was 'Hot as hell in here' this made me smile and I thought it would be a good way to test the inks out, after seeing Neil walkers tags from ranger u, I loved the depth and vividness. So after a little playing this is what i came up with.I like the way the inks have come out, but I did struggle with the composition.

To fit in with the challenge I needed to do something that included flames or used fire/heat.  Hopefully the inks look flame like, I have heat embossed the mount card with copper powder and Dante is in reference to Dante's Inferno.   The Divine Comedy's.

I hope the links work, I have my comp back now, It was very, very sick, it had at least 10 different viruses,  It now has medi care with Norton so fingers crossed no more probs.
