Hello again! It’s time for a Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop! The theme is “Bring the Heat.” “This is totally up to interpretation….some ideas would be using heat embossing, hot glue or fire. Or even using imagery of fire, heat, or even something SEXY! Step outside your comfort zones – the HOTTER the better!!! It can be a canvas, a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item, an art journal page, etc. Use your imaginations. Also, don’t forget the S&S rule that is has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine).”
I teamed up with my Bombshell Stamps Babes, and used several sets for my “hot” creation.
I started off using Harley Bikes, knowing that I wanted to use the flame from the Hula Girl set on the tank of the bike. I stamped the bike, then the flame- in 2 colors, and I embossed the flame so that it would really show…especially after I colored the rest of the tank in.
Then I went for a stamp I hadn’t used before…the devil from the Cherry Bomb set. I stamped him in clear, several times, and then embossed him in clear as well, to get a raised watermark effect.
After that, I pulled out some Distress Inks and went to town with inking my edges, to give it a bit of that burnt paper look to it. I was going to actually burn the edges, but I decided to go with the safer, inkier route.
But it still needed something, so I used the banner from the Homeward Bound set. Thinkin’ the person riding his bike, may just be riding into Hell. So it’s time for you to continue hopping! Here is the complete blog roll, so that you don’t get lost.

Gorgeous work, Alison! I'm loving your handmade DP with the embossed devil. It adds the perfect feel to your card. Your coloring of the bike is AMAZING and the homeward bound adds just the right amount of accent to the main image. I can see you using the bike stamp in a future scrapbook page with you and your hubbs 🙂
