The Corrosive Challenge #195 - Go Green


Welcome to another addition of The Corrosive Challenge!  It's time to welcome a new sponsor and kick off a new challenge!  This fortnight we are pleased to introduce The Stamping Chef!  I am super excited to have a chance to work with these "smexy" images!  Tamara's art is cheeky and fun!  But don't just take my word for it...  Check out her shop HERE and see for yourself!  We were each generously offered an image of our choice to work with and if you play along you'll have a chance to win 3 images of your very own!


Our challenge has 3 options!  Mix and match as you please.  Choose one, two, or all three!

1) Use the photo color inspiration (see below)
2) Create a St. Patrick's Day project
3) Include something recycled on your creation


I selected Trixie Deville for my project.  I loved the 50s starlet air about her!  She is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I used the green from the photo inspiration as well as something recycled (soda can tabs) for my creation.  My layout is courtesy of Tuesday Morning Sketches (#240) and they had a twist this week: 3B's.  My three would be border punch, bottle cap, and blossoms (flowers).  But it's also a birthday card in case the last one's a stretch!  lol  My papers are My Mind's Eye - Everyday Tango.  I added some seam binding and flat back adhesive pearls from my stash as well as a sentiment from Stampin' Up.  The border punch is Martha Stewart and the die cut behind Trixie is My Favorite Things - Insert It: InstaFrame Die-namics.




I do have a couple of St. Patrick's Day cards to make today and a bit of baking to do.  Everyone is Irish on March 17th and since it's Kayne's "half" birthday I always try to make it fun.  I sent treats to day care for all the little leprechauns last week.  Take a peek...


Their very own rainbows and pot o' gold!  What did we ever do before Pinterest?  lol  I hope you'll head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see the team "Go Green"!  Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend! 

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E31, E79, R81, R85, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, N4, N6, N8).
