Scarily green



We have another new challenge for you this week at Corrosive Challenges, and as it's a new month, we also have a new sponsor. The sponsor for March is Digis with Sttitude, so you'll see some of their fabby stamps being used by the DT throughout the month. This week's challenge is to use something green. Spring and St Patrick's Day are both approaching sat, so what better than a bright fresh card in the shades of new growth? But you know my Mojo, it's all contrary, so as soon as I heard what the challenge was, my mind went in the opposite direction. Not all fresh and spring-like, I went for something dark and threatening instead :P
The wonderful digi I used is by Andrea, aka Smusgetastic, who's in the process of setting up her new shop to sell her creations, but, being a buddy, I got to get my hands on these before they're available to mere mortals . . .I mean, the general public :P Papers are by Crafty Chaos Designs, Old Lavender set.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Paper Minutes - sketch
Pollycraft - three circles
Challenge Up Your Life - fairy tales (this fearsome lady with bat lips would make a perfect wicked stepmother :P)
Easy Craft Projects - green
Stamp Something - digi
Totally Papercrafts - pearls and lace
Card-Makin' Mamas - something green
Crafty Purple Frog - things with wings
Do You Stack Up - green
Really Reasonable Ribbon - ribbon/lace/trim + green
Penny's Challenges - green
Top Tip Tuesday - your favourite . . . This incorporates my favourite type of card (digital, much better for me to both create and send), my favourite colour combo (green and purple) and my favourite hobby of subverting challenges so that you get something that does follow the theme, but which is also very different from the projects that most other people will have created using the same guidelines.
Paper Playtime - anything digi
Critter Challenges - use a sentiment on the front
Sentimental Sundays - pearls and lace
