The Corrosive Challenge #122 - Slippery When Wet


Close-Up Detail of Image

No, it's not a Bon Jovi CD, it's a new Corrosive Challenge! This week it's all about water! From there, how you interpret that is up to you! I decided to go the mermaid route. Using a fabulous image from this month's sponsor, Stamp Insanity, called Sirene I created a center step card! Isn't she gorgeous? I colored her with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and added glitter to the bauble she is holding and glossy accent to her tail. This was my first time making a center step card, but after watching a quick tutorial and one failed base attempt, I think I got the hang of it. I really liked the end result and have a feeling I'll be producing more at some point. I used plenty of elements relating to water and the ocean. From my wave patterned paper, to my punches, to the pearls - I think I really achieved a "wet" looking card! If you want some more inspiration for challenge #122, be sure to check out the rest of the creations by the design team here.

I have plenty of crafting to do today, but if weather permits I'd love to get the small man outside. First things first, though.... COFFEE! lol

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll leave a comment if you like what you see! I love getting them and each one is truly appreciated! Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!
