Time for another Corrosive Challenge? Yes, it is! And even though it's not quite a new month, it's close enough! We have a new sponsor for today's challenge and for the entire month of October! Let's make some noise for Sassy Studio Designs! Are you making noise? Good! SSD has a fabulous prize of 4 images for our monthly winner! Want to know a little more about Sassy Studio Designs and the woman behind it? So glad you asked!
Here's a little about the fabulous digi company in owner/artist Lindsay Dyer's own words:
"Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh and fun company. We have been designing and selling for 3 years now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping. I was a young adult woman at the time. I was engaged, had no kids - I wanted fun, sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and (then soon to be) hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my DH kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past years. I still try to be Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun, and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy! ~Lindsay"
Now onto the business of the new challenge.... As many of you know, Halloween is my favorite holiday! So how could I resist "Something Wicked This Way Comes"!? The theme this fortnight is to create a Halloween card featuring a villain or a monster. Sassy Studio Designs has quite a few images to fit the bill (check out the recent Little Honeys Villain collection)! I selected an image from that collection myself! This is Cruella Honey. My son has recently fixated on the 101 Dalmatians movie so I am quite familiar with Cruella's evil ways! As a matter of fact, the small man is going to be a dalmatian puppy for Halloween this year, and I'll be dresses as, you guessed it, Cruella De Vil! I got my "fur coat" (a thrift store score at $15!), my red gloves, and a cigarette holder on Friday! I'm so excited, and we still have a month to go! Anyway, my card....
I colored Cruella using Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. I have really been trying to work on my hair coloring, doing some experimenting with some different techniques. I'm not sure I like this one, but I tried. My papers are Black Dots from Recollections by Michaels and My Mind's Eye - Haunted. I followed the current Deconstructed Sketch (#71) for my layout. The sentiment is computer generated.
Stop by The Corrosive Challenge blog to see some inspiration from the rest of the team! Hope you'll play along with your favorite monster or villain too! Enjoy your Sunday! (I think I will be attempting to get the Halloween decorations up before doing some crafting.)
Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E23, R20, W4, W6, W8, W10) and Prismcolor Art Markers (79, 150, 151, 152, 169).
