This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Anything Goes

Hi  Everyone, I hope you are inspired with today's inspiration 
challenge for you:
Even though the challenge is anything goes I am in the Christmas in July spirit. 


Here's some inspiration:



It is an ATC, with a tag tied on the top, I love how the paint shimmers.
I painted the evergreen  patterned paper to give it some shimmer and also to pull all the colors together.
I also painted my stamp and then stamped it I used the seasons and celebration stamp set from CTMH Art Philosophy set. I painted the joy stamp with the fuchsia and then stamped it. I love the free flowing design effect the paint gives. I added  fairy dust to the dots in the tree to give some contrast
At the very top, I used a Jeweled inspiration.  The thread I used to tie the tag on is is antique crochet thread that my Aunt left for me when she passed away. I will use this spool for tags until it is gone.


I JUST LOVE THESE PAINTS!!









I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great week!

  3. Fabulous ATC!! So jealous to see Christmas crafting so early. LOL!! I usually wait until the week before Christmas, quickly create some CAS cards and quickly ship them out. Sometimes I can be such a procrastinator. Thank you for the inspiration. :-)
