The Corrosive Challenge #140 - Ring in the NEW Year

Welcome to the first Corrosive Challenge of the year!!! The holidays are over, the new year is here, and everyone is rested and ready to go! Not to mention we have fresh blood on the design team! Six new members to welcome! I hope you'll head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see who these lucky ladies are and say "hello" to them! They are all excited to be here, and I'm thrilled that we have such a lovely and talented group assembled!

A new month means a new sponsor, and I couldn't be happier to introduce KennyKdownloads as our January sponsor!!! Sassy, sexy, cool is what they are, and it's a pleasure to work with these fun images! Their generous prize is 5 digital images of choice for our January winner!

So on to our challenge.... In order to celebrate the coming of 2012 we have a "Ring in the NEW Year" challenge for you! All you have to do to play along is use something new on your project. It could be an image, embellishment, die, paper - whatever you've got that is brand new and never before used! Please tell us in your blog post what the item(s) are that qualify for the challenge.

My card features one of the image's from Kenny K's Steampunk collection. She is called Capt Locke, and I just think she is one of the sexiest things ever! She was a lot of fun - and work! - to color! It took me about an hour! I looked up at the clock and couldn't believe how much time had gone by because I was so engrossed in my task! She is one of my new items as is the Tim Holtz word key. I've used a few other embellishments from good ol' Tim as well (the metal corner, brads, and adage ticket). Papers are from a DCWV stack called Tradewinds. This my first time using them even though I bought them over the Summer, I think. All other items are from my stash, such as the doily and Prima flower. A couple of Martha Stewart punches finish it all off. Isn't the heart with the keyhole just darling? I thought it was the perfect addition!

Here is a close up of my colored image:

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E04, R20, E25, E27, E34, YG95, B32, B34, B37) and Prismacolor Art Markers (149, 210)

I'll be entering a few other challenges with this card. As you know, my resolution was to submit my card to at least 3 challenges. I'd like to enter the following:

- Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenges: New Beginnings
- Chocolate, Coffee & Cards: #3 - Sketch
- Crafty Ann's Challenge: #56 - Let's Think Hot (I think she qualifies! Heehee!)
- Card Makin' Mamas: Happy NEW Year
- Delicious Doodles Challenge: All Things New

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend! I may have to do some more crafting. Or I may end up on the couch! lol I have movies to watch and a book I'm itching to finish! I guess first things first: COFFEE! Have a fabulous day!

She's a hottie Regan. Beautifully colored and such gorgeous colors and papers. So funny, I was thinking, I've got to get that key paper. Embarrassingly, I think I have that stack, lol. Better dig it out. The rose, doily and key are so beautiful too. Great card.
