Winter's Here

Good Morning and happy Tuesday. I'm back with my second piece for the Country View Crafts 'Opposites' challenge, and I've chosen Fire and Ice.

As I was making this the new season of Game of Thrones hadn't started, so there will be no spoilers from me.

 I started with a piece of 12 x 12 paper with a brick wall effect to reming me of the ice wall - I don't know why really 'cos that came down at the end of last season.

 I covered it in white gesso to tone it down a bit, then got to work on my fire with a couple of stencils and some DecoArt Media Acrylics. 

 Then I added some snow with Snowtex, and some crackle with an Andy Skinner stamp. 

 Lots of lovely snow!

 For the ice I used the Tim Holtz Drips die and just about everything else I could lay my hands on. There's Frantage, snow balls, micro beads, you name it, it's probably on there.

 So now we have fire and ice, we just need...

This firery one is a Sheena stamp, flying in to save the day.
The words are from a Tim Holtz strip die

 And the ice dragon is by Pink Ink. I've cut into the stencilled flames to give him somewhere to rest.

And there we are! By the time you are reading this it will all be over, and life can go back to normal in our house. I live with 2 fans who will be very sad to see the show end.
There's still time to join in with our challenge, so please show us your opposites for the chance to win a £20.00 voucher to spend in the store.
I'm joining in with the Use Stencils challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday, and also Stitches over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday
Have a happy week, and thanks very much for looking x

  7. Oh boy Sue this is so dramatic with it's fire and ice detail. It's like a story in it self although your Dragons are a lot cuter. Any GOT fans would love this..! I know I do.
