Corrosive Challenge #106 – Going Green

March 6, 2011 at 7:10 am 4 comments

This week at the Corrosive Challenge blog, we are featuring the digi images of Digis with Attitude. My card using an image from this company will be shown next week. For this week, our challenge is to Go Green. I decided to make 2 cards this week, one with a St. Paddy’s Day theme and the other a Father’s Day card that my 6’2″ son will give my husband.

Here they are:

For this card, I used a stamp that I picked up from Michael’s. It is made by Hampton Art. I inked up the shamrock on its own using Momento Tuxedo Black and stamped it 4 times to make a medallion-type image (masked it off so the leaves wouldn’t overlap). I coloured the leaves with copics (G20, G21, G24). I added a green self-adhesive rhinestone in the centre. I then inked up the sentiment and stamped it below the shamrocks. I used my nestie circle and lacey cirlce dies to cut and frame it. My paper is 110 lb. white (Strathmore), Basic Black (SU) and Basic Grey & We R Memory Keepers (Tiffany’s) patterned paper. I tied some black & white gingham ribbon around the paper before adhering my main image.

and:

I used Karen Giron’s sketch from last week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my layout. I started with a 110 lb white (Strathmore) card base. I used some scrap solid green CS and ran it through the Forest Branches CB EF. I adhered that to some Bassill dark brown paper. I also used some Basic Grey patterned paper layered with the same brown for my left-side panel. I stamped the tree from PTI (Father Knows Best) with Certainly Celery & Always Artichoke as well as Close to Cocoa and Early Espresso, since it’s a two-step stamping set. I also stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso and used circle nesties to cut and frame them. I added a strip of Certainly Celery under the sentiment and 3 buttons (PTI) to finish the card.

I hope you like them and I look forward to seeing what you create for this week’s challenge!
