Summer is waning, school is in full swing...the thermometer is (thankfully) staying below 100 degrees...my birthday is fast approaching...this means it must be September! I was asked to be a guest designer for Corrosive Challenges for the month of September!! Such an honor!
Doesn't its very name make you think of rusted metal and loads of distressing? It's either that, or sulfuric acid...and I don't recommend crafting with sulfuric acid...you tend to lose fingers that way.
So, over at Corrosive Challenges the challenge this time around is "Myth and Magic". The sponsor for this challenge is: Delicious Doodles. Be sure to check them out. Their images are very unique and sophisticated--with a good dose of the macabre!
So come enter for your chance to win!!!
For this project, I chose one of Kenny K's new images from their "Myths & Maidenz" line--the lovely Elf Queen. She's so elegant and lithe. She TOTALLY reminds me of what a Tolkeinesque elf queen should look like. I colored her up with my Copics (just kidding...I just wanted to check to see if you were paying attention). I actually used my ever-trusty Prismacolor pencils (like I always do). I added touches of glitter to her dress, hairband and eyelids--though it's difficult to tell in this pic. I rubbed Perfect Pearls over the embossed background to highlight the rivets.
