Corrosive Challenge # 151 - Feeling Punchy

No, we don't want you to put on your boxing gloves!  This week's Corrosive Challenge is is to use 2 or more punches and/or dies on your creation.  Our new sponsor this month is Mayzy Art who is a newer designer, but gaining quickly in popularity.  Her images are super fun, and cute, and she is always adding new ones to her Etsy store, you should definitely check it out.  She very generously let the DT choose an image, it was hard to choose, but I decided to go with Digi Dancers Disco for my card.  I am a bit of a disco diva at heart, I have always loved disco music.  I think it gets a bad rap for some reason, but I really think it pioneered the way for modern day dance and electronic music.  I had a recipient in mind for this one as well, my old roommate from college whom I still stay in touch with.  We used to go to a regular disco night party at one of the local bars, and many nights I would dress for the occasion in my finest polyester.  Ahhh, memories!  LOL.
For the challenge, I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals, Standard Circles, and a McGill Pine Branch Punch.  My disco dancer is colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped up with foam squares.  This was my first attempt at coloring African American skin tones, this was going to be my practice image, but I thought it came out pretty good on the first try so I just went with it.  I love her afro, I wish I could have funky big hair like that, but I have super straight fine hair.  I found the disco ball image from a Google search, and added some stickles to them.  Sketch was Card Patterns - # 166 that I just flipped to be vertical instead.

Papers:  DCWV Premium Stacks - "Downtown Loft" stack and "Tahiti Beach" stack.
Embellies:  Recollections and WOC Flowers, Michaels ribbon

I had so much fun with this one, come get punchy and play along with us at The Corrosive Challenge for your chance to win some images from Mayzy.
