Corrosive Challenge #191 - All Work and No Play

Hello again!  Hard to believe we are already well into January, and things are back to normal after the holidays.

Since the New Year often involves getting back to work, our new challenge is to use an image depicting a job or career.  I am always thrilled to work with our sponsor for this challenge, sexy, cute, and sassy Kenny K!

Stamps from Kenny K are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations!  The winner of the challenge will receive a prize of 3 digi stamps! 

I chose to work with Hot Fuzz (I love that name, lol).  And she is definitely a hot one!
She is colored with Copics, and glossy accents added to her lips, glasses and the brim of her hat (the gloss doesn't show in the photos really, I need to work on my photographing me thinks.)  The sentiment is computer generated and courtesy of a google search for "funny police sayings".

Sketch was #284 at Sketch Saturday

Papers and flowers are from stash, key is vintage metal by Colorbok, rhinestone flourish is Recollections.
Looking forward to seeing all the entries at The Corrosive Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.

Corrosive Challenge # 190 - New Beginnings

Happy New Year!  Man, the holidays fly by, I swear you blink and they are over.  The fam and I had a great Christmas and New Years Eve, but it's always a little relief to get back to normal.  That means a new challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog .  We are always pleased to welcome back A Day For Daisies as our sponsor.  

A Day For Daisies (also known as ADFD) provides themed categories of over 1000 digital illustrations, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. Be sure to check out what is available in the shop, and head over to the blog for some awesome inspiration!  ADFD has also opened a new clear polymer shop featuring "most loved" images sold as sets.  Check out their lovely selection HERE!
In honor of the new year, our theme for the challenge is "New Beginnings" - wedding, graduation, new baby, Baptism, spring, you get the idea.

I chose Morning Dew Fairy to work with, she is so sweet.  I was thinking along the lines of a "new day" for my card.

She is colored with Copics, with Stickles added to her wings, and glossy accents added to the dew drops.  Combination of Recollections and Wild Orchid flowers/butterflies/pearls.  I made a stick pin using supplies from Walmart!  They have an ever growing Paper Crafting section that comes in very handy for last minute or spur of the moment needs.

A closer view:

It's actually really funny when I got done with my card, I started having a Deja Vu moment, then I looked back at another ADFD card I had made...
Look familiar?  LOL.  Leave it to me to choose the same paper, color scheme, and embellies for the most part!  Someone, break me out of my comfort zone, ASAP!  Maybe I'll give it to my mom again, and they can be companion pieces, haha.

Hope to see lots of fantastic "new" entries!
