The Corrosive Challenge #226 - Pile It On

Hi there!  How is everyone today?  I'm happy it's Sunday, but wishing I didn't have a Summer head cold and lack of sleep bringing me down.  Regardless, I will be getting outside today as it is a perfect one out there!  Maybe a good dose of Vitamin D will do the trick!  Before I don the sunglasses, sunscreen, and bug spray I wanted to stop by with my creation for the latest Corrosive Challenge, though!

This fortnight we are welcoming back sponsor Aurora Wings!  I'm a huge fan of Mitzi's work and I have quite the collection of her digis.  I may have to invest in one or two of her coloring books too.  Doesn't that sounds like fun?!  You can find all her goodies in her Etsy shop HERE.    Go ahead, browse and make a wish list.  Mitzi is generously offering a $15 gift voucher to our winner!!!

Our theme for the next two weeks is one I had A LOT of fun with!  It's "Pile It On"!  That can mean different things to different people and we are leaving it up to your interpretation.  Pile on the embellishments, layers, other challenges, or any combination.  Just be sure to tell us in your post how your project meets our criteria.  I colored Rose Fairy 2 from my collection for this challenge.  Mitzi offered the team images to work with, but I decided it was time to color one of the beauties I already owned.  She is colored with Copics and matted with two layers. 

As you can see, I really did pile it on!  There are a plethora of dies and embellishments on the card!  I was happy to use several of my dies from La-La-Land Crafts (Lattice Doily Border, Lattice Border, Heart Doily) as well as the picket fence Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  I also popped a butterfly from a Martha Stewart punch on there too.  Embellies abound with a sheer runched ribbon, resin frame, flowers, bling, and Tim Holtz goodies (Type Charms, Compass Coins, Game Spinners, Pen Nibs, Corners). I sprinkled a little Aged Rose Fran-tage around the sentiment, which is from a Little Darling Rubber Stamps set - Vintage Affections: Enchanted Wishes.  The papers are Brenda Walton - Madeline (K&Company).

If CAS is your thing, this challenge may give you pause, but it was super fun!  And with such a fabulous prize up for grabs it's worth the effort!  Visit the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team stacked up and just a head's up that our design team call is still going on until the 14th!

Thanks for visiting!  Enjoy your day!
