To be honest, it took me a little while to think this one through. Where was I going to go with this one?! My very first thought? A tiger jumping through a hoop of fire! I quickly erased that image from my mind, however, as I do not own such a stamp nor do I imagine I will ever spend my precious craft allowance on one! So…moving on…I thought about s’mores, camping and the like, but the thought of digging through my stash of neglected stamps to find that specific theme didn’t settle well with me. Then, what do you know?! It hit me! Chemistry class! Bunsen burners! Mysterious mixtures! I had just the set in my stash from Paper Trey Ink too!
|Stamps: Paper Trey Ink, AMuse (flame image)|
Those Bunsen burners were hot, let me tell you! The mixtures we created were gorgeous in color sometimes, but they also put me on edge a bit, especially after seeing a classmate or two produce mini explosions that led to a disgruntled instructor!
I actually inked the colorful mixture image in both Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo (SU!), but it doesn’t show up as well in the photo as it does in real life. I added Crystal Effects over the top of it to give it a little shine. I added the tiny gemstones for good measure and rounded one corner for a little added interest.
I hope you’ll join us for the FLAME challenge this week! I can’t wait to see what our participants come up with for this one! It’s funny how one word can take on so many different meanings to so many people! Love it!
Just be sure and link up your creation/s on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!
Take some time to visit the blogs of the rest of the design team and this week’s guest designer! They’d love to hear from you!
