February Digi Bells Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to the February Digi Bells Blog Hop!

This month Elisabeth Bell has released a super cute summer themed image called "Little Best Friends" and you can purchase it now from Elisabeth's Digital Gallery! Today the Digi Bells Design Team is hosting this blog hop to share ideas using the new image. We hope you enjoy the hop today!

If you are joining me from Patricia's Blog, you are in the right place, but if you have just stumbled on the hop today and would like to participate, please go back to the Digi Bells blog to start the hop from the beginning.

For my project today I've created an easel card and paired it with some yellow and blue papers for a sunshine/sky theme. These are from SU!, but I believe they are long retired now. They work great with this image and the summer theme though.

I've colored the image with Copics in blues and yellows to match the papers and then cut it with Circle Nesties. I've stitched the papers with the sewing machine and then embellished with flowers and pearls. The bottom layer has little pennants which were created with paper, eyelets, and twine. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps digital sentiment set "Emma Swinging" designed by Raindrop Echo Designs. I cut the sentiment with a label punch from SU! and added some pearl accents.

Here is a close up of the front of the card...
This card fits the challenges at:
Digi Doodle Shop's Best  - anything goes
