"Sprite Lily of the Valley" by Aurora Wings

Hi Everyone, this is my entry for My Favourite Colour Challenge on Stamps by Aurora Wings Facebook.  I’ve used the adorable “Sprite Lily of the Valley” by Aurora Wings to create this 6x6 Valentine’s day card. The patterned paper is DCWV and the beautiful diecut sentiment is by Penny Black. I distressed the paper edges with Seedless Preserves Distress ink and then added some flowers and gems from my stash. I’ve coloured the image with my copics and sparkled up her face with some Wink of stella.

"Winter Fae" by "Morgan's Artworld"

So excited to share with everyone my first ever Design Team project. I'm so honored to have been invited to join the wonderful team at “The Corrosive Challenge Blog”
My project was created using “Winter Fae” by “Morgan's Artworld” an amazing sponsor over on The Corrosive Challenge Blog. Go check it out and enter your wonderful creations in their monthly challenges for the chance to win awesome prizes from their very special sponsors.
I've used copics to colour my image and added some accents using some simple foiling techniques on the sentiment and stars. Using my favorite gold leafing pen I highlighted the edges to create a soft, elegant layered look while keeping the beautiful image the focus.
I can't wait to see all your creations at The Corrosive Challenge!!!

"Mermaids Wish" by AuroraWings

Hi Everyone, Isn't she beautiful! An image like this is always super fun for me to colour. This was an advanced assignment for the Kit and Clowder Skin and Hair class, I loved her so much I immediately purchased the full image from the wonderfully inspired art of "AuroraWings" Next month I am so lucky to be creating with an AuroraWings image for my DT project for "The Corrosive Challenge Blog "
Hope to see your wonderful creations there for their monthly challenges:)

"Beautiful Floral Bouquets" Card for Mom

My mom asked for a bouquet and a card made by me for her birthday, so I combined both into one.
This bouquet will last forever. I copied this bouquet from Dover Publication "Beautiful Floral Bouquets" onto copic friendly paper so I could colour it with my copics and fit it onto a 6x6 card base.
After colouring the vase and flowers I fussy cut with an exacto knife the floral portion, then added
some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella and added some shading and sentiment to the bottom portion
and popped it up with foam tape over some patterned paper and some layers of cardstock. I think it
turned out pretty and she will like it :)

Challenge Winner

This was a very exciting 3rd place win for me on the KitandClowder Facebook Challenge
Sponsored by The East Wind. The image is Aurora "HollyandOlive"and the challenge was
creativity using this image. I coloured her with copics and my objective was to colour her hair to resemble gold and appear to have gold dripping from the tips. I had great fun creating the look and was very happy with the result.
