Happy Memorial Day weekend! For those of us in the US it is a time to remember the fallen soldiers who have given their lives in defense of our country. It is also the unofficial kickoff to Summer and we celebrate accordingly! I will be heading off to a cookout later today and there is a parade and other festivities tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be beautiful so I anticipate a lot of time outside! But in case you are inside, and maybe sitting in your craft room, I want to tell you about the newest Corrosive Challenge that starts today.
Our awesome sponsor is KennyK (Downloads and Clear Stamps)! Since I run that design team too you already know that I love KennyK's images! Taking into consideration that it's the holiday weekend here we opted for a nice easy theme: "Anything Goes"! If you play along, up for grabs is a prize of either 2 clear stamp sets or 4 digis! Winner's choice!
I colored up one of the newer clear stamps. This cutie is from the Let's Hang set. Coloring is done with Copics and then the image was cut with the Deckled Rectangles Large Nestabilities (Spellbinders). The @birthdaygirl sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set called @SoSocial (which has recently been retired). The circle sentiment is from an Autumn Leaves set aptly named Sentiment Circles by Katie Pertiet. I used my Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things) and Magnolia View Master Doohickey dies as well. Finishing touches were a few flowers, bits of bling flourishes, and a wood veneer ampersand. The layout design is courtesy of The Deconstructed Sketch (#201).
Hope you'll visit the challenge blog to see the other fab KennyK kreations from the team! Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are and whatever you do!
