Wishful Thinking!

Holy moly, two posts in just a couple weeks.  I might just be getting some of my mojo back!  It's officially SPRING in New of course, it's SNOWING...again.
To take my mind off this miserable winter, I thought I would have a go at the Challenge going on over at Saturated Canary (drawn by the wonderfully talented Krista Smith), using 1 of 2 (or both) images available here.
I decided to use the super hip Beach Ink image.  As a "collector" of tattoos myself, I just love this tatted up beach babe.  She is colored with Copics, papers are DCWV Tahiti Beach Stack, flowers and embellies from stash and Michaels.  I totally cased the card posted on the Facebook Page by Zara Petkova because it is AMAZING.
Some winners will be chosen by vote, so if you feel so inclined, pop on over here, pick your faves and give them a vote.  Thanks to Krista for the awesome inspiration, and here's hoping it might actually FEEL like spring soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

Corrosive Challenge # 220 - Our Animal Friends

Hello there!  I know I've been quiet for some time now.  Between work, my sons activities, hubby back to work full time, and obligatory crafting, I just wasn't able to keep up with all the challenges and blogging with my Corrosive Challenge team, but I am grateful that Regan let me stay on board behind the scenes, and I love when I do have a chance to participate.

We have a brand new sponsor for this one, the super cute, and very unique PpinkydollsWhen I saw the images available for this challenge, I just had to make time to play along.  I totally have a thing for owls, so I couldn't resist the adorable Moon Girl and Owl.  Her Etsy shop can be found HERE and you can also find some awesome inspiration at the PPinkydolls Facebook Page.

Our theme for this one is to include an animal on your project.  There are a lot of animal lovers on the team!  The lucky winner will receive a prize of 3 digis!
This cutie is colored with Copics, I love the effect that happens with the shading that's already part of the images.  Papers and embellies all from stash (I really could use a crafty shopping spree).  I was back and forth whether this needed "more" but then I decided it was just fine with just a few things added.

And here's a closeup, for the heck of it.
It was so much fun to play along with this one, and I hope to see lots of entries over at the Corrosive Challenge!  

Thanks for stopping by.
