Corrosive Challenges Design Team

I'm part of it! I still have to pinch myself a bit to make sure it is true. Janet, from Niagara Falls, Canada, asked me to be part of the Design Team for a new challenge blog she has started, Corrosive Challenges. The first challenge was loaded yesterday. It is a sketch challenge.
My contribution is below.

I'm not sure why I chose to make it a masculine card except I don't make them very often and I love the set from our Summer Mini, For Father. I stamped the toolbox image using Black Stazon on Watercolour paper and coloured it using and Aquapainter and Watercolour Wonder crayons. It was mounted on So Saffron and then Old Olive. The base card is Bordering Blue, stamped with the Lots of Dots Jumbo Wheel. The sentiment is from Congratluations, stamped in Close to Cocoa on a scrap of Watercolour paper. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I made the faux brads to be like nails on either side of the sentiment by punching circles of Close to Cocoa cardstock, adhering them in place with a glue pen and covering them with Crystal Effects.

Why don't you go an visit Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of team have done.
