**Summer Daze**

Elisabeth Bell has outdone herself yet again
Just when you think that her designs can't possibly get any cuter,

Is this not a DARLING Digi or what???

I have decided to create something other than a card
I seem to be doing that a lot these days,
But I have to tell you, these projects that are not cards make for great gifts

This one is a mini wooden tray, that I have turned into a wall hanging

I painted the wooden tray with typical craft paint and colored my darling "Summer Daze" digital image using COPIC MARKERS!  Yes Yes, my favorite for sure!!!

The two flowers were punched from a retro flower punch, and the stitching was hand drawn on with yet another Copic marker BG75. The little rosebud trim was just something that I had in my stash, and seemed to go perfectly. After applying my little rhindstones, I then put a thin coat of Modge Podge over the entire thing to give it a glossy look, as well as to give everything a little bit of protection, and keeping everything in place.

The Colors used are:

Skin: E00, E11, and R43 for cheeks, Hair: E50, E53, E55, E27, E33,
Other Colors used: Y17, YR04, R05, RV88, RV34, RV21, E31, E25, B01, YG03, YG11, B0000, C1, C5, C9 and of course a Colorless Blender from Copic.
