Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The theme for this challenge is
You may interpret the challenge theme anyway you choose.  For those attempting to use actual flame of some sort please use common sense and have a basin of water nearby as well a fire-extinguisher.  We don't want any injuries or burnt down homes in the making of your burnt offering projects.

Examples of Burnt Offerings include, but are not limited to, the following:
Burn the edging of your cardstock or a portion of your project.
Use a soot stamping technique.
Use a wood burning tool in some fashion on your project.
Use your heat gun to scorch areas of your project. 

Also acceptable, especially for the accident prone folks, are the following:
Use a faux Burnt technique.
Add faux flames to your project.
I'm sure there are other things, but I'll let you folks decide what to do.

*Please read and follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog to qualify for a prize.

Posted below is some inspiration from the first part of the Smeared Ink DT.
  You may click on the individual pictures for a larger view and you can visit any of the designers by clicking on the names above the project pictures. 
 We will post a challenge reminder next week with examples from 
the remainder of the Smeared Ink DT. 

I highly suggest visiting the designers' blogs as you can learn tips and tricks on how each lady made her project. 
Leaving a bit of love is always appreciated too.






The Prize:

A $5.00 gift voucher to Smeared Ink.

  3. Great design team samples...I would probably end up setting my house on fire so I settled for a digitally "burned and charred" project. Thanks for the unique/unusual challenges!

  4. Great challenge idea! And awesome DT samples.:)
