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!
