The Corrosive Challenge #161 - Know When To Fold 'Em


It's been quite the month!  Posting every day has really tested my creative limits.  I have enjoyed it, but with only 3 days left in October, I'm looking forward to a little break from the crafting madness.  I hope to squeeze in some Halloween baking this week too, but we have Hurricane Sandy a.k.a. "Frankenstorm" headed our way just in time to muck up my favorite holiday!  That makes two years in a row that Mother Nature has surprised us with a wicked storm on October 29th (last year it was snow)!

Enough of my weather woes, though...  Today I'm here to tell you about a new Corrosive Challenge!  This is the last one for the month and for our fabulous sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs.  They have generously offered 4 digis of choice to our monthly winner!  I have used two SSD images in my project today. The theme this fortnight is "Know When To Fold 'Em".  In other words, fancy folds!  If it has more than one fold, it qualifies!  I opted to make a center step card.  This is only my second one ever, but I have to say that I love this style of card!  My images (including the Egyptian throne from Delicious Doodles) were colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  I fussy cut Sassy Mummy and Bonnie of the Nile (Cleopatra Sassy) and sponged around the edges of the throne image panel.  Papers are Deja Views - Global Treks.  I added a punched border from Martha Stewart, flowers, bling, and a Tim Holtz word band as my sentiment.



 I hope you'll head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of my team has come up with for this challenge.  Maybe you'll be inspired to play along!  Me, I am off to a Halloween party at a local farm with the small man.  We are meeting some friends for a bit of toddler friendly spook-tacular fun (as long as the weather holds out for us until then).  Then it will be home for more crafting and blogging as I try to complete the next challenge for the Simply B(etty) Stamps 13 Days of Halloween challenge.

It's always nice to see you here and I appreciate all the comments I receive!  They always make me smile!  Have a fabulous day and stay safe if you are in the path of the storm!  See you soon...

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, W4, W6, W8, W10, 100, E23, E31, R24, R29, R43) and Prismacolor Art Markers (149, 196, 209).

OMG, this is WAY cool! You have to teach me how to do this. So fabulous using the Egyptian Sassy's and the throne in the middle. Love the color pallette and the sentiment. I wish my hair was shiny like theirs, lol! Awesome job, my Queen :-)
