Welcome to July's Challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog with the theme Anything goes!

For this challenge, I have used Wind Fairy by IKE'S ART. Oh boy was this image a challenge and a half! Soooo many folds! I love folds, but I don't think I done the image justice with my colouring. Yes, yes, I am my hardest critic and after my third attempt, I had to stop being so hard on myself and just let it be! I ended up cropping quite a bit off when I cut it out with my die! I have used it on my deep edged canvas. I hope you all feel inspired to join this month's challenge.

Ike's art by Sue

About me:
I live in Greece and have a passion for kitties  
I am a bit crazy or should I say I’m ‘zany’ hahaha. I have a very strange/sick sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself. !! Well, I get more sense out of me.! I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady” 
I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art. I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal. I have a passion for all things horror/Gothic etc. I’ve always loved horror films and books and I guess that’s why it creeps into my stuff
I started my Blog a few years ago and now I run my CATS ONLY Challenge Blog and IKEsWORLD CHALLENGES Blog too. (Links are below) 
Although I love crafting, my real passion is drawing, and now I just love making digital images.
My Blog is Ikes World and is at http://suzy-ikesworld.blogspot.com

MoonFlower Art digital stamps by Andreia Silva

About the Artist
   

Andreia Silva, that’s the name of the artist.  She’s Portuguese, to be more precise, born in Madeira Island, also known as the atlantic pearl.  Land of great food, great weather and beautiful landscaping.

Since little been crazy over crayons and drawing, being one of the things that always were on her hobby list.
Being fascinated by stories, fantasy, mythology, princesses and all that,  marked her style, well that and manga/anime lol!  So fantasy art is her thing!

All she knows over drawing is what she had read on tutorials online and in one book or two she got from manga/anime how to draw.

Before putting some time into teaching herself on how to improve her skills, she used dolling (  A form of digital art, in which you find a base somewhere online or make your own, take it into a paint program, then draw and shade clothes on it.)  as a way to express her creativity and drawing talent. She was known online as Orathty, the crazy doller over massive hairs and loads of folds, something that still proceeds with her on the drawing now. Is her style J

Andreia also loves photography, to make some manual arts such as a bit of decoupage and  books.


The MoonFlower is one of her newest adventures, as dolling wasn’t enough to satisfy her growing desire to improve on her art.

About Chrishanthi:

Athens Greece artist Chrishanthi has had a passion for art from an early age. This was made quite clear to her mother, who would have to drag the young Chrishanthi to school, as she kicked, screamed and yelled  “Why do I have to go school?  I already know I want to be an artist! . . .”With the support of teachers who allowed her to draw her much-preferred little girls and small animals, it  seemed that Chrishanthi would have her way. “I was always drawing and cartooning as a youngster and all the way through college.” Her style and sense of sensitivity were heavily influenced by the smoothness of Lolita girls. After studying Painting, Graphics and Visual Design, she worked  as a children clothes designer, spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen. At some point, she picked up some gouache paints for the first time. Chrishanthi was able to hone her skills, learning the art and techniques of gouache and acrylic painting. Major influences include Magritte, Monet and contemporary artists of the pop-surrealist movement, such as Joe Sorren, Mark Ryden and Nicoletta Ceccoli. Chrishanthi currently spends her time predominately painting new works and commissions, freelancing, and has aspirations of creating/illustrating children’s books. Recently she has also started dabbling in the pop art of bringing her characters to life in the form of sculpture and resin dolls. In her current work she continues to explore surreal worlds inhabited by my uniquely bizzare creatures, cute critters and sweet girls. Her imagination and sense of life are a huge part of my work

BIO:
My name is Nikki Burnette and I am the artist of all the artwork that you see on this website! I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but I have lived around Atlanta, Georgia for as long as I can remember. I currently reside in Lawrenceville, Georgia with my loving husband of a year and a half and our two adorable cats: Jensen and Willow. My kitties provide constant inspiration for me and you will often find them in many of my paintings!
I have been an artist my entire life, but began my professional fantasy art career when I began to sell ACEOs on eBay in 2006. You may have heard of them, but in case you haven't, ACEO stands for Art, Cards, Editions and Originals. They are miniature paintings measuring 2.5x3.5" and are highly collectible. I was fortunate to be well received in the ACEO community and started to grow a fan base. People started asking for originals and prints in bigger sizes and they also wanted a variety of products featuring my artwork. So I started to branch out and over the past 5 years it has turned into something that I feel so fortunate to have now. My art is collected worldwide and I'm licensed with a variety of different companies. I have also been lucky enough to be published in a book and a few magazines and online publications. I also attend fairs and conventions across the Southeast and have recently had the privilege of having my artwork on the cover of the ImagiCon 2010 program cover!

I feel so privileged to be able to do something that I enjoy so much every day and am thrilled that you have taken the time to read a little bit more about me and my art!

BIO:
Heather Valentin  is  creative ,  award winning,  modern-day  fantasy and  whimsical  artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years. 
She  began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age. 
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and  brush stroke. Her  subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her  dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's  artist portfolio  has  expanded to include such  clients  as   Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils  and can now be found  at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across 
the globe. 
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
