Welcome to another Corrosive Challenge! I have been having a rough time crafting lately. First I was sick! Fever, chills, the whole shebang! And last week I somehow managed to acquire a pinched nerve in my neck that is radiating pain down my right arm (and of course I'm right handed). Between that and the horrid weather that has continued to plague us until yesterday, I have spent my spare time on the couch in a funk. My neck/shoulder/arm still hurt and my mojo was off but I soldiered on to make a card because we are introducing a new sponsor this fortnight: Ching-Chou Kuik! Her enchanting images can be found HERE in her etsy shop.
Our theme is "Floral Fantasy". Just use flowers somewhere on your creation (part of the image, on your paper, as an embellishment) and you're in! Ching-Chou was kind enough to allow us each to select an image to work with and I picked Embrace the Ocean. I used to her make a thank you card for someone who recently did something very kind and generous for me!
She is colored in Copics and cut using Classic Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders) then matted on Bead Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I added Liquid Pearl in White Opal to the pearls in her hair. I also used adhesive pearls around the image. Papers are Everyday Enchantment from Stampin' Up. Assorted Martha Stewart punches, flowers, and a sentiment from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps' Vintage Affections - For All You Do stamp set adorn my card. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#295).
Pop over to the challenge blog to see the floral beauty the team has to share with you! I will attempt to have a productive day, even if that just means getting caught up on dishes, laundry, and my TV shows on Hulu.
