Out With The Old

Happy New Year!!  I feel like it's been forever since I posted.  The holidays are always pretty hectic with my family, we have lots of visiting, presents to open, and making merry.  I do love Christmas, but I am always a little relieved when it's all over.  The tree is down, everything is back to normal, time for a new and hopefully good year ahead.

We have some exciting changes over at The Corrosive Challenge for the new year.  You may have noticed we gave the blog a little facelift, and we are going to be announcing some new team members for our January 20th challenge, so be sure to check back.  We also will be featuring a new sponsor for EACH challenge this year, which also means more prizes for those who enter!  Wahoo!  We are retiring our guest designer position, but will be selecting a Top 3. These crafters will get to have their creations featured on the blog in our separate Monday winners' post!

We are extremely pleased that our first sponsor for the New Year is Simply Betty Stamps !  Betty's images are fun, funky, and unique, and are always a blast to work with.  I chose Diver Judy, part of the Sweet Gothic Kids Olympians collection.  The challenge is "Out with the Old", use up something from your stash and tell us what it is.

Everything I used I already had in my stash.  The stickers I had received for my birthday in June, by K and Company - "At the Pool", papers were Bazzill Basics, and DCWV Tahiti Beach stack.  Brads and stick gems I have had in my stash forever.  It's actually rare that I go and buy something specific for a project, I tend to just buy things at random when I catch a sale, so I have a pretty good stash to choose from for the most part.
Judy is colored with Copics, with a little bit of glossy accents added to her goggles.  I almost had a disaster when I ended up with black fingerprints on my image as I was sponging the edges, but I was able to cover over them for the most part, phew!
The winner of this challenge will receive a $15 gift voucher to the Simply Betty Stamps online shop!  Dig through that stash of yours, and join us!  

Hope everyone's 2013 is off to a great start!

This is awesome Jasmine! Love the way you color, especially hair, looks so shiny. Great papers and fun wave accent, too.

LOL, about the finger print, I had a red one on mine and had to recrop it smaller, ack (of course this was at 1030 last night, need to not procrastinate so much).

Beautiful shading with the grays. Your card is beautiful, love the image and your design.

Love her! And I can't tell there was ever a fingerprint anywhere so you did a fantastic salvage job! Perfect papers and the glaze on her goggles is awesome! Plus you know your coloring is top notch- look at that glossy hair!
