The Corrosive Challenge #143 - Another Dimension
Welcome to Another Dimension! Traveling through time and space not on your agenda this weekend? Well, no worries - there's no worm hole needed for the new Corrosive Challenge - just some foam squares or dots! We want to see projects that have lift and have been taken to new heights! As long as something somewhere on your creation "pops" you're in!
As anyone who has followed my blog for any time knows, I love to fussy cut and pop my images up so this really wasn't too much of a challenge for me. Therefore I decided to deviate slightly from the usual.... I double popped! I printed two of these gorgeous Lycaonia images from Delicious Doodles, cutting one whole image out and then just the wolves from the second. I layered the wolves on top of the main image with foam squares and then popped the whole thing up again with more foam squares when I mounted it to the card. Here is a close up of the dimensional effect:
And here is a close-up of the colored image:
I used my Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers on the image. The sketch is the current one from The Sweet Stop (SSS146). I had to alter it a bit and placed a pearl flourish where the text is supposed to be, but hopefully it's still acceptable. I even participated in the "spin" part of the challenge which was to use die cuts or punches. There are several different Nesties used as well as a Martha Stewart border punch. Papers are Winterland from Fancy Pants Designs. All embellishments are from my stash, including more of those amazing Wild Orchid Crafts flowers! This is a special card as it was for my mom for her birthday! She loves wolves so I thought it was perfect.
Inspired and want to play along? Head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the fabulous design team has created to inspire you and then link up your take on the challenge! You have two weeks to join in, and there is a wonderful prize from sponsor Tiddly Inks up for grabs (as well as a chance to be guest designer for April)!
I hope everyone is having a terrific weekend! Mine has been a busy one! Dinner with my best friend on Friday night (sushi/Chinese). Dinner with my family Saturday in honor of my mom's birthday (Italian). And tomorrow I have a Stampin' Up demo to go to! My bank account already took a hit when I placed my own catalog show order last week... And I know I am about to do more damage! lol I can't help it - I love their card stock and coordinating embellishments! Whatever you are up to today, I hope it is enjoyable! I will be sneaking in a little crafting time when I can as I have a very busy week with design team projects so make sure you check back to see what shenanigans I've been up to now...
