The Corrosive Challenge #215 - Shiny and New

Happy 2015!  I hope everyone's new year is off to a fabulous start!  I have already managed to finish reading my first book and make my first card of the year so I'd say mine is right on track so far!  Welcome to the first Corrosive Challenge of the year!  We are so very happy to have one of my very favorite artists back as our sponsor: Aurora Wings and the fantasy art of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff!  Mitiz has generously provided the design team with images to work with and is offering a $15 gift voucher to her shop for our winner!

Our theme this fortnight is "Shiny and New".  There's a little wiggle room with this one.  You can make a project for something new (marriage, baby, new job, new house, etc) OR you may use something new on your creation OR you can add something shiny to your make.  (Or any combination of these options works for us as well.)  I selected Anti-Valentine's Girl and decided to make a divorce card with her.  I know...  Divorce isn't something that we typically "celebrate", but sometimes the new beginning it gives us is just what we need, whether we realize it or not.  So when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.  Or, at the very least, open your mailbox to a handmade card from someone who's been there, done that, and is thinking of you!

Mitzi's gorgeous image is colored with Copics and cut using Classic Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The image panel is matted on Beaded Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I am all about the "shiny" with my bling and the glaze on the heart.  My "new" is the designer papers which are called Something Wonderful by Teresa Collins.  Santa left this lovely 6x6 pad in my stocking and this is the first time I've used it.  The unusual, yet perfect, sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called Twisted Threesome.  My sketch is courtesy of Sketch Saturday (#342).  I used my favorite Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch too but you can't really see it when all my layers were added.

I hope you'll take a trip over to the blog to see what my teammates created and maybe play along while you're there!  I also hope you're enjoying your weekend!  We got some snow and ice last night so today seems like a great day to stay cozy at home.  I should probably take down these Christmas decorations, but I think I'd rather spend it at my craft desk.  There's always next weekend to put the lights and baubles away...

Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E50, E53, R20, R22, R24, R32, R43, R46, Y32, Y35, N0, N2, N4, N6, BG01, BG10, BG13, BG72, BG75).

Oh, I just love having a Divorce card - never would have considered it, but you are right, could be a new start and put a smile on someone's face. The sentiment is just perfect too. Thanks so much for using Sketch Saturday #342. I enjoyed visiting today. Take care.

Such a clever idea - a divorce card! I never thought of it, but you're right, it certainly can be a beginning of a wonderful new thing. Love your coloring on the Anti-Valentine Girl and all the fun details. Thank you for joining "All That Glitters" at Aurora Wings!

Never thought about doing one of these before but I would imagine there would be quite a demand for them if they sold them in the shops. Great image and sentiment. Thank you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Anything Goes Challenge and Good Luck! Del xx
