To celebrate the newest addition to Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery (here), the Digi Bells Design Team is hosting a blog hop.
How can you win your own Christmas Bells digi image? You'll have to hop through and leave comments on EACH blog. [You can find the full list of 13 other blogs at the Digi Bells Design Team blog (here).] Lynda will pick 2 blogs at random and the winners will be picked from those comments. The hoppers will have until Friday, Dec. 28, 2012 at 9 AM to leave comments. The winners will be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012.
Reminder: Buying then sharing digital images is theft. Sharing digital images takes income away from the artist.

I've attempted to bring this lovely little lady to life with paper-piecing and paper toile. This pic shows the pieces I've used. I used Copic W3 to shade over the areas of the parts that I planned to add pieces over.
Here's a closer view of my softly colored, paper-pieced, Copic-filled image. I've used FlowerSoft Polar White to cover the furry parts of her cloak, dress, boots and muffle.
This photo shows my completed cracker box where I've used Elisabeth Bell's newest digital image named Christmas Bells . . . Yay! I've captured some of the Stickles glittery sparkle over the holly and berries. I covered chipboard with Bazzill bling cardstock before die cutting holly leaves with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Holiday Lampost die. Three mini jingle bells hang from the leaves with jumprings. Kaisercraft pearls act as berries. I've stamped a sentiment from a Martha Stewart clear Christmas Tree stamps set.
Untie the ribbon bow and this cracker box opens with a space large enough to conceal some fabulous treats for gift giving. Candy, makeup, first-aid items, crafty supplies, jewelry - ooo, it can hold some wonderful goodies!
