The Corrosive Challenge #192 - Feel the Love


Remember when phones had cords?!?!  What?  Am I dating myself?  lol  I do recall those days and there was nothing like sprawling across your bed (a water bed in my case; hey, it was the 80s!) and talking to your friends for hours!  Ah, the good ol' days!  No texting or IMs or Facebook or Instagram or Snapchat.  Just a lot of giggling and gossip through those phone lines!  In honor of this, I made a Valentine's Day card for my best friend for the newest Corrosive Challenge.  Our theme for challenge #192 is "Feel the Love" - make a Valentine's Day themed project.  But it doesn't have to celebrate romantic love necessarily.  There are all kinds of love.

We're sponsored this fortnight by one of our favorite companies: Sassy Studio Designs!  Not only were we allowed to select a fabulous image to work with but there is a prize of 4 digis up for grabs for our winner!


This is Sweet Talk Sassy, and she is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares.  I had this sentiment stamp from 7gypsies (Hampton Arts) that I picked up on clearance at Michaels last year and have been dying to use!  I thought it fit perfectly so I stamped it on the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics!  Papers are Basic Grey - True Love.  The Kiss Kiss fabric tag is also from that line.  I added punched hearts (Martha Stewart), flowers, and enamel dots.  As an afterthought I added the punched heart borders on either side (also Martha Stewart) and I really like the visual interest it adds.      

 


Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E79, N0, N4, N6, BG10, BG72, R32, R35, R81, R85, R89, RV34).

Oh do I remember those days with cords. I was lucky though, my best friend lived next door so we could still talk when we were grounded from the phones. Love the sentiment. Great card as usual my friend.
