Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Holiday Frenzy!!!

Our challenge for this time around was to create a tag, card, gift bag, box or anything else we might make as a last minute gift of course using one of the images from one of the marvelous talented designers at The Digital-Ink Co.  My choice was Tonz of Fun image designed by Stamp'en with CJ.  Isn't she adorable.  All the digi's are on sale right now at 50% off so she is available for $1.13.  What a deal! She could be used for many occasions.

I decided to make a last minute gift of a luminary for my Holiday Frenzy. You can get the tute here.  I adjusted the size to fit my image. I ended up using a complete piece of 12 X 12" cardstock. I placed vellum in the ovals.

I colored Ethyl, I named my elephant Ethyl, with chalk and highlighted her with copics.  The image has these little feathery hairs on her head so I went with that as inspiration and used both pink and black feathers on her head and as a background. Topped that off with a bright pink bow. I also added a few pink crystal gems to make her dazzle and give her some bling.

She got a pedi and mani with some cotton candy stickles to match the cording on her dress. The last thing was to wrap the top with matching pink ribbon and add a couple of pink crystal flowers. 

Ethyl was added to opposite sides of the luminary so she can be seen from every angle.  Since this is a paper product I bought one of the new Glade no light candles and put it inside.


I hope I inspired you to Kreate and join the challenge! It starts today December 14th and ends December 26th. Pop on over to Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog and let your inner artist imerge!

There will be prizes worth over $50.00 to be given.
Doesn't that sound GREAT?
