Happy Easter blog land!  Hope the bunny was good to everyone.  We are pleased to announce the new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge:  SPRING FLING.  We want to see your best spring themed project:  Easter, flowers, sunshine, bring on the warm weather!  Our fantastic returning sponsor is Delicious Doodles.  

Teri the artist has a little something for everyone.   She designs and hand/mouse-draws all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff.  Why not pop over and take a look!  She is even having a SALE until midnight on Sunday!  All the more reason to enter to win the Delicious Doodles prize of 4 digis!

Challenge # 170 - Just Dance

Well, we are probably starting to sound like a broken record here, but March has certainly come in like a Lion in New England!  Last weekend we got another snowstorm that brought 2 feet of snow to most areas.  Enough already, bring on the lamb.  We did get a bit of a break after the storm with some warm weather that really got Spring Fever going in full force.  Spring Fever brought to mind Saturday Night Fever (one of the greatest movies ever: the white suit, the polyester, the platforms, the light up floors!), and disco dancing, and voila, our next challenge was born:  "Just Dance"!  Show us some sweet dance moves, and create a project featuring a dancer or inspired by dancing and music.

A new challenge is here and that means a new sponsor with a fabulous new prize!  We are super excited to welcome back Mayzy Art as our sponsor this month!  Mayzy is offering up 5 of her awesome digis as a prize to our winner!  Mayzy has tons of fantastic images that are perfect for the challenge.
Per the artist herself:  "Welcome to MayzyArt! My goal is to provide unique, highly detailed and affordable digital stamps for your paper craft projects. I am a self-taught artist out of Missoula, MT. I currently reside in Mesa, AZ and am incomplete without a pencil or pen in hand.

For shop updates, the MayzyArt Challenge, sales and beautiful examples of paper craft projects made using MayzyArt stamps, please visit

Here's what the fabulous team waltzed out:

So come on and get down, put on your boogie shoes and show us your finest steps, er projects!

Challenge #169 - All That Glitters

March already!  Easter and spring are right around the corner now.  After some crazy late winter storms in New England, some of us are definitely ready to usher out the winter this year.  This new month is the start of a new challenge, and we are super excited to welcome a brand new sponsor to the Corrosive Challenge Blog!

Rick St dennis has been an artist, designer, stage designer and instructor for over 40 years-His Master of Fine Arts degree is from the Royal academy in London on fellowship with an American University. 

A friend suggested the idea of Rick doing digital stamps to donate to OPERATION WRITE HOME which he did-they were so popular that he decided to post some of his more iconic designs on ETSY just on a lark-which he did in 2009.

Gaining exposure and by doing sponsorships for challenge blogs and other online events he expanded from about 50 designs in 2009 to over 400 in 2012.

2013 will see the addition of archive discs featuring designs which have been retired and the addition of work by friends who are also designers and artists.

The idea of digital stamps which at first seemed sort of silly and frivolous has become a product which Rick really believes in-the images are widely diverse, relatively inexpensive, easy to store and certainly more conducive to manipulation than hard stamps, HOWEVER-digis won't replace rubber-there are things a talented stamper can do with rubber stamps that can't be done with a digital image.

In honor of Rick's Elite Design Team Blog Sparkle and Glitter our new challenge is to
use sparkle or glitter on your project, the bling-ier the better!
