Wow, is it Sunday already? And is it February already? Yes, on both counts! February brings with it a holiday, or two. The groundhog saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter. Oh joy. And the Super Bowl is on today. Is that considered a holiday? Yup, I bet to some it is. Not that I care much for football, even if the local team is playing in the big game. I have a toddler so will most likely be immersed in a Disney movie at kick off time. And that suits me just fine. Then there is that other holiday. No, not Presidents' Day! lol That dreaded Hallmark hearts and flower day! There is nothing worse than being single on Valentine's Day! Or worse, being with the wrong someone! A better scenario is spending it with Edward Cullen, but I fear he may have plans already. Where am I going with this lament, you ask? Why, to tell you about the new Corrosive Challenge - "Love Bites", of course! We were feeling a little kooky over there this fortnight and decided that we needed to acknowledge the other side of love, too! Unrequited love? Love lost? Love/hate? Tall, dark, and um, gruesome? It's all good for this challenge!
Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Tiddly Inks, and they have offered up a $10 gift voucher to their store for our February winner! Owner/artist Christy was kind enough to supply the design team members each with an image of their choice. I already had a few images. Then got my freebie plus some. And still I went back a couple of nights ago for more! lol For my creation I chose to use one I picked up the other day... She's called "Heartbroken Happy". She says so many things to me... She's dumped him, and she says "Bite me"! He's dumped her, and she says "Bite me"! Either way, love certainly does bite. And after a fight with my son's father yesterday, this was exactly what I needed. And cheaper than therapy too! (Although the retail therapy session in the afternoon was NOT! lol)
She is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares. The paper is from the K&Company Love is a Circus pad. All embellishments are from my stash, and I used two neglected crafting tools on this card - my corner rounder and my paper piercer. The sketch is courtesy of Card Patterns (#151).
Be sure to head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see the awesome ideas the rest of the DT ladies had! Their projects are all amazing! And I know this one may be a challenge for some of you, but isn't that what we're here for? We hope you'll play along and can't wait to see your interpretations!
