The Corrosive Challenge #141 - I {HEART} You



Hello, blogland! It's Sunday morning here and today is the start of a new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge! It is hard to believe two weeks have gone by already, but it's true! We are creeping towards February and with that in mind we announce our theme for this fortnight - "I {HEART} You"! With Valentine's Day less than a month away, now is the perfect time to include a heart (or two or three) on your creation! Your project doesn't have to be for that Hallmark holiday necessarily. It could celebrate a wedding, an anniversary, a birthday, any occasion where you want to send some love!

Our fabulous sponsor this month is Kenny K! They have offered up a prize of 5 of their digital images to our lucky winner! My image is one of their new Valentine's Day ones. She's called Sexy Cupid and that she is! I've colored her with the usual combination of Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. This card is for a co-worker to give his wife on Valentine's Day, and I experimented with some darker skin tones than I normally use. I definitely think I still need practice with this, but hopefully, she'll like it anyway. lol I fussy cut and Stickled her as well. (Yes, I did just use Stickles as a verb. Deal with it! Haha!) Papers are from a new K&Company pad called Circus Valentine. I love this paper so you'll be seeing it again! The ticket is from a matching border embellishment pack that I picked up on Friday. On that same shopping trip I came across this lovely ruffled organdy trim that was a must have! A few flowers, a couple of punched and embossed hearts, some pearls, and my Dizzy Doily die from My Favorite Things complete the card.

Markers used: Copics(E25, E27, E34R43, W6, W8, W10) and Prismacolor Art Markers (150, 151, 152, 169, 1, 8, 10, 149, 209, 108).

If you want to play along or simply want to check out the rest of the gorgeous design team creations, visit The Corrosive Challenge blog!
