The Corrosive Challenge #216 - Winter Blues


Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  It's time for an new Corrosive Challenge!  Are you ready?  We are sponsored by a company I personally love working with - A Day For Daisies!  There are sweet, whimsical, classic, elegant, and vintage images for every occasion in Tammy's shop and they are a joy to color!


Our theme for this challenge is inspired by the cold winter we're in the middle of here- it's "Winter Blues".  You have two options with this one: create a winter themed project or one that features blue.  It doesn't have to be monochromatic but the blue should feature prominently in your project.

Tammy is offering the generous prize of a $12 gift certificate to her shop and also was sweet enough to offer images to the team to work with.  I selected Robin in Winter.  I needed an anniversary card for my parents this month so I thought a winter themed one would be just right to celebrate their January wedding.  I colored the image with Copics and added some Aleene's Glitter Snow.  The image is cut and matted with Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and I sponged a little Baja Breeze ink (Stampin' Up) for the "sky".  My layout is courtesy of Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (#41).  Papers are DCWV - Winter Basics stack.  I added a cluster of flowers, navy blue organdy ribbon, and a few punched snowflakes which came from the Martha Stewart border punch I used.

Copics used: E04, E07, E31, E35, E53, E57, E59
