The Corrosive Challenge #146 - Heavy Metal




April Fool's!!! It's April 1st which is the day notorious for tricks and pranks, but all you'll find here is a new Corrosive Challenge and a fabulous new sponsor! Oh, and perhaps a visit to the Easter Bunny this afternoon since Easter is next weekend, and we haven't gotten around to that yet.

The Corrosive Challenge would like to welcome Dilly Beans Stamps as our sponsor for the month. They have offered up 3 images of choice for our winner. (Artist Megan was also kind enough to provide each member of the design team with an image to work with for which we are very appreciative!) This fortnight the challenge is "Heavy Metal". No headbanging required. Simply use something made out of metal on your project.

My card has two metal embellishments - the ornate frame and the corner, both from Tim Holtz. Here is a close up of the frame.



This awesome image is called 382-Abby Framed from Dilly Beans. She is colored with Copics, and I couldn't resist adding a little bling! The crown is a Martha Stewart punch, topped with tiny rhinestones. Flowers are from my stash as is the remaining bling. Papers are by Recollections, and I loved them because one side said "Keep Calm and Carry On" while the other read "Freak Out. Panic Now." Bwahaha! I can relate to the latter! I think that's why I chose to pair it with the My Favorite Thing's sentiment from their Twisted Threesome set.

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, R85, W6, W8, W10, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97).



My layout is the current sketch from Mojo Monday (#234). I hope you will stop by the Corrosive Challenge blog to see what incredible creations the design team has put together for this challenge. And I hope you'll be inclined to play along too!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- ATCs & Cards with Attitude: #10-Anything Goes
