The Corrosive Challenge #169 - All That Glitters

It's been a while since I've posted.  Heck, it's been a while since I've crafted!  Life has gotten busy here and it has forced me to make some decisions. One of those being that I chose to resign from Sassy Studio Designs to make room for more time with Kayne, more down time to relax, and eventually, maybe, a new creative adventure.  For now I will enjoy my remaining crafty endeavors- like The Corrosive Challenge!  It's time for a new challenge there and an amazing new sponsor!

This fortnight we are lucky enough to have the privilege of working with the talented Rick St. dennis!  His fantastic images can be found in his etsy shop!  And in honor of Rick's fabulous Elite Design Team and his Sparkle and Glitter challenge blog, our challenge theme is All That Glitters!  Use something shiny, sparkly, glittery, or blingy on your creation!

Rick was kind enough to let each member of the team select an image to work with.  I opted for Ms Razz L Dazzle here!  I've recently become hooked on the TV series SMASH so I'm all obsessed with Broadway at the moment!  Ms Razz L Dazzle looked like she could be in a musical!  Or a Vegas showgirl!  I colored her with Copics and then using glaze as an adhesive base (thanks to Rebecca of Sydney's Sentiments for the tip) I added gold microbeads to the trim of her dress.  I must admit that I got a little ahead of myself and added the beads before I trimmed the image so I had to resort to a craft knife to cut her out!  I used a gold glitter gel pen on her feathers and some of her jewelry.  Papers are Graphic 45's Curtain Call-Applause.The sentiment is a freebie from the ever generous Paulette over at Create with TLC!  I thought it was just perfect for this project!  A die from Labels Twenty-Two Nestabilities from Spellbinders was used to cut out the sentiment which was then edged with the gold glitter gel pen.

I hope you'll visit The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what my lovely teammates have blinged out and perhaps you'll play along for a chance to win the fabulous prize from our sponsor!  Check back with me tomorrow for a new Graphicat Sketches challenge!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, 100, YG06, E23, E74, E79, R89).
