My First Corrosive Challenge Post

Today, I am officially a Design Team Member for The Corrosive Challenge Blog and I am excited to tell you about our first challenge for 2012...Ringing in the New Year!  The challenge is to use something new on your project.  We are sponsored by Kenny K Downloads (one of my  personal favorites). 

I am using this fabulous image from Kenny K called J-Cool.  I wanted to try doing African American skin tones.  I think I did pretty good.  I thought J-Cool was perfect for Ringing in the New Year.  He is all blinged out and ready to go.  I colored him with Copics, cut him out and popped him up with SU dimensionals.  In addition to using a "new" image, I used "new" background paper.  It is called POW glitter paper.  I found it at Pat Catan's.  It was a little hard to work with but very beautiful.  It kept rolling itself up.  Unfortunately, the picture doesn't do it justice.  My other "new" item is the cute music notes.  They are from Jolee and I bought them specifically for this card.  I feel like J-Cool  is a budding music mogul and a party guy.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Please hop on over to The Corrosive Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration.  Then join in the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.
