The Corrosive Challenge #198 - Head Gear

Hello!  It's time for another Corrosive Challenge!  I'm afraid I've left my project to the absolute last minute so I am going to keep my post brief lest I fall asleep at the keyboard!  Our sponsor this fortnight is Dilly Beans Stamps!

Megan Suarez is the owner and artist behind these fun and quirky images. She has generously offered 3 images of choice for our winner this month as well as generously provided the design team with images to work with. She has an amazing variety of cute & creepy, whimsical images so head over to her shop to check them out!  You can find them over on Facebook too!  Click HERE to join the group!

Our challenge this time around is "Head Gear"!  By that we mean anything you put on your head!  Hats, barrettes, bows, flowers... If your image has something on its noggin, you're in!  Or think outside the box and WOW us with your creativity!

The image I chose to work with is called Day of the Dead Frida.  I do love these big eye art gals!  She is colored with Copics and fussy cut then matted on the Fleur de Lis Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  I added mulberry paper flowers to her hair.  The image has flowers drawn there but I thought it would be fun to give a little dimension.  I added a tulle flower, a skull bottle cap, a Magnolia Doohickey flourish and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly.  Paper is from the Midnight Magic stack from Recollections.

We said goodbye to our crafty friend, Linda Palmer, this week.  She passed away suddenly on Monday, and I still can't quite believe that she will never be joining us for another challenge.  I had never met Linda in real life, but she was a sweet woman who loved her family.  She was always talking about her numerous children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  They will feel her loss more acutely than her cyber friends in the crafting community, but we will all miss her.  Linda, this post is dedicated to your memory! Thank you for sharing your talent with us, for being a wonderful design team member, and for all the sweet blog comments you always took the time to leave... 

Pop over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the has under their hats for you!  Thanks for stopping by!

Markers used: Copics (N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, V04, V12, V15, YG93, R24, R27, R29).
