Things are Looking Grimm over at Corrosive Challenges

Hi everyone.  It is time for another fabulous challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  This month we are sponsored by Sassy Studio, love, love SSD (and not just because I am on the DT).  Lindsay, the SSD artist/owner is amazing.  Her images get better and better with each new release.  The current CC challenge is called Things are Looking Grimm.  We are asking you to create a project based on a fairy tale, fable or children's story.

I chose to do Snow White.  This image is Little Honey Snow White from Sassy Studio Designs.  I colored her with Copics and cut her out.  She is popped up with SU dimensionals.  I added mirror paper behind her.  What a pain to photograph.  Everytime I tried to take the picture, you could see my hot pink shirt and my bright green camera phone.  I finally had to put a white pillow in front of myself and shoot down on the card to get a decent picture.  This was the best I could do.

The beautiful frame behind the mirror is a doily rectangle from QuicKutz.  This was the first time I used it (usually use Spellbinders) and I must say I love it.  There is cushioning in all the little holes so your paper doesn't get stuck in it.  I wish all my dies had it!  It was a pleasure to use.  The embossing part didn't go as well as with Spellbinders but I may have needed another shim with it.   I made the flower with a Cheery Lynn die.  I also need to practice that one.  It didn't come out as pretty as I wanted.  I will get it next time though.  I made the apple background paper using a free clip art apple.

Before I send you off to see what the other Design Team members have created, I would like to brag a little.  My niece is getting married in May.  She just got her dress and she looks so beautiful in it.  One of my other nieces is her Maid of Honor and she just had a fitting for her dress and she looked lovely.  Now I have to figure out what I am going to wear.  Please head over to CC and see what fabulous inspiration cards the rest of the Design Team created for you.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely card Rebecca. Obviously great minds think alike as I used the same image and made a little mirror. And yes, photographing mirror card is a pain. Love your apple background paper and lovely flower. Great job.

Gorgeous card, Rebecca. That's so funny that you and Mags both used the mirror paper, and I imagine it was quite a challenge to photograph! It came out awesome though. That IS a great die cut, and your apple paper is perfect!
