Burnt offerings

This fortnight at Smudgy Antics we want you to set things alight (insert mad crazy woman with flame thrower)!!!!! 
Ok so maybe not quite so dramatic we don't really want you set fire to things and if you do decide to play with fire then be safe and preferable do it outside with a bucket of water on standby. We want you to show us your take on the theme burnt offerings. 

For my piece I have played around with an ATC sized canvas. To start with I used a blow torch to burn a hole in the center of the canvas (at this point I wasn't actually sure what I was going to make more just enjoying setting fire to things LOL) . I then rubbed over the canvas with some copper acrylic paint leaving the bit right next to the hole so the burnt edges could still be seen. It was at this point I decided to have the raven peeking out from the hole. I stamped the raven onto a piece of scrap white paper and put it to one side. I then used one of the background stamps from the Quoth the Raven rubber set to stamp all over the canvas. I stuck the raven to the back so he could be seen through the hole. I covered the canvas in some black flower trim I have got and then attached 2 dice as the feet. At this point I decided it needed something else so I stamped out the skull from the same rubber set and used a flame to add colour to it, unfortunately I got a bit close and set fire to it...however I decided that I quite liked it so used it anyway.

The stamps I used can be found in the smeared ink rubber club here

Amazing canvas! Besides the burned hole, that trim looks like charred edges. Love the burnt skully too. Got one hell of a kick out of your post as well. Fabulous all around. xxD
