A Tutorial and Challenge Project

Good morning to all of you and Happy New Year's Eve! It's so hard to believe that 2010 is almost over and before you know it 2011 will be here. The year has flown by and as always I feel like I blinked and missed half of it!

Today I am going to share with you a project I made for the Elisabeth Bell World challenge blog. I found this blog when searching through Elisabeth Bell's beautiful stamps. I have purchased her stamps from SCACD, her digi's from her own personal site AND 7 Kids College Fund is now pre-ordering some of her stamps. I have looked through these images and can't wait to pre-order some myself. She is one of my many FAVORITE stamp artists! Here is a direct link to her challenge blog if you want to check it out!

OK, so onto my project. I came up with a card set and a card box for this challenge. Here it is!

Here is a closer look at the box so you can see her digital image better. The image is called Frosty the Snowman and it is from her digital collection.

I colored my image using my copic markers. I just love my copic markers! The sky background is shaded with my Stampin Up bashful blue stamp pad and the white swirls and dots for snow are Ranger white enamel. The rhinestone swirls are from Recollections. I thought they added a nice touch to this project.

I have a tutorial for this box that you can access by clicking here. I've also this tutorial to the main tutorial page on my blog. Also, new templates have been added to the main template page!
So glad you decided to stop by today,
