Challenge # 189 - Anything Goes

December already?!  It's hard to believe the year is almost over, and this is our last challenge for 2013!  We have a wonderful new sponsor for the occasion that we are thrilled to introduce:
Lacy Sunshine Stamps offers beautiful original and imaginative digital stamps for all your paper crafting needs.

All images from Lacy Sunshine are hand drawn and designed by myself, Heather Valentin, a professional artist, muralist and illustrator and my dad, professional artist, G.P.

From the art desk of Lacy Sunshine's creator....

"I am one who loves creating timeless pieces from my heart and soul, creating an extraordinary world filled with magic and whimsical friends.... one drawing at a time. Come journey with me now into my Lacy Sunshine World".
To keep things simple, the challenge is "Anything Goes"!  Our sponsor has such a wide variety of images from totally adorable to a little bit creepy.  Most of the team (probably wisely!) went with Holiday themed cards, but you can do anything you want!  The winner of the challenge will receive 3 digis from Lacey Sunshine for a prize.
A little inspiration from the team:

w/ two adorable creations:

It's a wobble card!


We're sure to have lots of amazing entries, and can't wait to ring in the New Year with each and every one of our followers.  May you all have a wonderful Holiday Season, and see you again in 2014!

Challenge #188 - Happy Holidays

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving to our US fans and welcome to the holiday season!  It's hard to believe that the most wonderful time of the year is upon us again, and yet here it is - time to deck the halls and get in the holiday spirit!  Here are at The Corrosive Challenge we're feeling holly jolly about our new challenge and sponsor this fortnight!  We'd like to welcome back C.C. Designs (formerly All That Scraps) as our sponsor!

Here's a bit about the company in owner Christine's own words:

C.C. Designs has been in business since 2007, started out of our garage. Now we have our own line of rubber stamps and dies. We create cuties galore, if you like cute you will love C.C.Designs.

Visit the shop to browse through their adorable selection, and keep up to date on C.C. Designs news on the blog!  C.C. Designs has not only generously provided each design team member with an image to use, but they are offering 3 digital images of choice to our winner!

We're feeling festive and are guessing many of you are too so our theme is "Happy Holidays"!  Any winter holiday qualifies, whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Yule, Kwanzaa, or Festivus!  

Let's see what holiday magic the team has to inspire you!

We're looking forward to seeing your holiday creations!

Challenge # 187 - Fur and Feathers

Holy moly, November already!?  Almost time for Turkey and stuffing, shopping, then of course "The Most Wonderful Time of The Year" (that's debatable sometimes, LOL).  For our first challenge of the new month, we are super excited to welcome back a fabulously fun 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.

Rick has just opened a new shoppe here: where there are SO MANY amazing images to choose from!

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.

Many of Rick's images have amazingly detailed and intricate clothing and accessories, featuring fur and feathers, so that is our challenge - your creation must have fur or feathers (or both!), either actual or just in the image.

Some fabulously fine inspiration from the DT:

Show us your finest feathered, furry, fuzzy creations for the chance to win a fabulous prize from our sponsor!

Challenge # 186 - Tic-Tac-Toe

Brrrrr.  Hope everyone is warm and toasty this Sunday morning.  It has started to get pretty chilly around New England, the mornings are frosty and there's a definite chill in the air during the day.  You'd think one would be used to it, but the cold weather still always seems to sneak up on you.  At least we still have Halloween to look forward to!  We also have a fabulous new sponsor for you all.  We are so thrilled to be sponsored by The Paper Shelter for the first time!  They have some seriously adorable, fun, sweet images that have clean lines, excellent print quality, and you even get a colored version with your order!

A little bit about the company from owner Veronica:

"From our Home to another. That's what I feel when I´m working in our images and they travel electronically to other homes of the world. I feel lucky with this job. It's wonderful to make a living doing what I love.
I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina with my lovely family, my husband Pedro and our beloved son Gabriel.  I absolutely self-taught and I always tried to improve my skills in order to provide nice and high quality products to my clients. I’m not trying to be the best, I jus try to involved with what I do and fill it with good energy.  And by the way… I’m Veronica. Thanks for reading :o)"

To go along with a brand-new sponsor, we also have a never before done challenge...Tic Tac Toe!
Using the Tic Tac Toe board below (created by our awesome graphic goddess MICHELLE), create a project using any three items in a row either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

And, of course, your inspiration from the team!


Which three in a row will you choose?  We can't wait to see all your fabulous entries!
