Anything Goes Challenge at JDE!

Hi all!

Hope everyone here in the US is safe from Hurricane Sandy!  It's been pretty rough here in Rhode Island!  Thankfully I still have power!!  Whew!  You know crafting by candlelight isn't easy!  LOL!

So this week at Jackson's Digital Expressions it's the Inks and Such team that's hosting the challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes and our sponsor this week is DigiStamps4Joy.  My gift bag uses the Front Door Christmas Tree image from DigiStamps4Joy.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol then I stippled over the entire image with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I cut the image and the scalloped circle with Spellbinders dies and matted on My Mind's Eye papers.  I stippled all of the papers, the twine and even the corner dots which are called CANDI.  Propped the image and CANDI dots on dimensionals.

This picture really doesn't do this project justice!  The colors are much richer in person.
Here is the image before I cut it out.

So come join us this week at JDE for our Anything Goes Challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!
