Corrosive Challenge # 202 - Color Me Happy

Good morning everyone!  After a long day hosting a yard sale, I had a few finishing touches for my project for a new Corrosive Challenge. Yard sales are always interesting...there's the early birds, the drive-bys, the bargain hunters, and those who are just out and about for the day.  We ended up making a few bucks, and getting rid of some stuff, so all in all a success!

This time around, we have a new challenge and not one but TWO amazing sponsors!  Which means we will also have TWO winners!

  Prize - 3 digis

Prize - $10 gift voucher

Our theme is "Color Me Happy" - use your favorite coloring medium:  Copics, pencils, Prisma you name it!  

I only recently discovered Aurora Wings stamps, and they are just GORGEOUS!  I chose to work with Girl with Poppies isn't she just lovely?

She is colored with Copics, with some black glitter and a yellow bead added to the poppies.  Brads and flowers are Recollections, charm is Studio g, and the corner stickers are Momenta.  papers are both from  DCWV "The Wild Splendor" stack.

I really do adore this artist, and look forward to working with more of her images soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to enter the new challenge for a chance at a prize from one of our amazing sponsors.

Hey Dog

Despite my lack of blogging, I actually have been making some other cards in between Corrosive Challenges.  My cousin and co-worker celebrated his birthday last week, and loves to make a big deal of his special day, so I had to make him a special card.  We have a running joke at the office, where he does a spot-on impression of Any Samberg doing an impression of Mark Wahlberg talking to animals - if you haven't seen the skit, you have to watch it That was my inspiration. 

Once I had the idea I knew that Kenny K's Col. Macallan was perfect.  I love this angry little Bulldog!  LOL.

He is colored with Copics, with some glossy accents added to the clock, goggles, eyes and nose.  All of the papers and embellies are from stash, and the sentiment was computer generated.

Had some good luck that this will fit perfectly for the new challenge over at Kenny K's Krafty Krew   "Anything Goes" with a twist "Brown".  I haven't entered a challenge in FOREVER so this was a great opportunity.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day weekend, and we'll see you soon for another fabulous Corrosive Challenge!

Challenge # 201 Crop It or Cut It

Welcome back!  Thanks so much to all those that stopped by for The Corrosive Challenge's 200th Celebration!  I am behind the ball a little with my post, as I was away over the weekend for my friend from College's wedding.  We were roomies for a long time, and had SO much fun together.  I am so thrilled for her.
Time for a new challenge already.  I was so delighted that once again we are working with Lacy Sunshine!  Heather Valentin is the talented artist behind these cuties!  You can read all about her HERE!  Lacy Sunshine just premiered its very own online digital magazine on June 1st!  You can purchase your yearly or quarterly subscriptions HERE!  

A prize of 3 digis is up for grabs!  The theme for the challenge is "Crop It or Cut It".  This means you must crop and/or cut your image in some way.  Break out the scissors and the die cuts and let's see your fanciest of fussy cutting!

I was able to choose a digi, I have a serious thing for mermaids, so I went with Shelly Sunkissed Mermaid .  Love her!  She is colored with Copics, with some Stickles added to her tail, and some little adhesive pearls as well.  She is fussy cut and popped up with foam squares.  Most materials are from stash.  The floral papers are from Recollections "Today Tomorrow Forever" Pad (again!  LOL), I think the wave one was Bo Bunny.

Hope to see lots of creative cutting and cropping for our new challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
