Celebrate Summer...

Celebrating Summer!
Love this Sassy Cheryl image - really versatile, from Love you , Happy Birthday, Celebrate, to "That fish was THIS big!", etc.    I used my favorite technique of sculpting layers, in this case two layers of the focal image... the head, shirt and shorts are the 2nd layer.  Image is colored with Copics.  The DP panels are from Basic Grey and the checkered border and the metal bee charm were added for embellishment.  Details of the products used are below.

The inside was created using left over DP from the front.
