      I'm really thrilled with this new release from Jan's Digi Stamps called "Fall Cornucopia."  It comes with lovely sentiments and I included one here by merging the image and sentiment before printing.  

     On this image, I started with one of the pre-colored images but I adjusted it to grayscale before I printed it.  Starting with Jan's pre-colored images in grayscale instead of just printing the B&W line drawing means that all of Jan's lovely shading and highlights are still there so that adding your own colors over them makes you look like a superb artist.  :-D  Thank you, Jan!  

     I used ProMarkers and gel pens to color the grayscale image, then cut it with a Tattered Lace die.  I layered that onto the front of a circle card, also cut with a die from Tattered Lace, on top of the wrapped sheer ribbon.   The triple-loop, satin bow was tied using my bow maker and that bow is the only embellishment.

I used colors taken from the 3rd Column of 
the TicTacToe board at Color Dare, plus gold.

Double Trouble  (all 3)

     The challenges at Jan's Digi Stamps are still on a break but will be returning on the first Monday in November so not long to wait now - just a bit over a month.  Since our challenges run throughout the entire month, you'll hardly notice how quickly the time flies by.  In the meantime, Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

When I got a small sight of your image, I thought a Cornucopia of joy, seeing it large, that is true. Gorgeous card Connie.

Great idea on creating a greyscale image and it looks lovely all colored up. Though you do a good job on your own too.
