All Dressed Up Challenge February 2016 The East Wind Challenge Blog

This is my entry for the new East Wind Blog Challenge “All Dressed Up”.  I’ve created this card using the beautiful image “Aurora Bloom” from Unky and The East Wind. I’ve used my copic markers to colour her.  Silver hair is very trendy right now, so I’ve tried combining my warm grays with some yellow to create this look.  I never tire of colouring The East Wind images and I find I am inspired to colour beautifully no matter which image I choose. This project is one of my favourites; I just love black, red and cream.

Enchanted Garden Challenge February 2016 Stamps of Aurora Wings Facebook

This is my entry for the Aurora Wings Facebook challenge for February 2016 “Enchanted Garden” I’ve used two images by Mitzi the artist of Aurora Wings. The two images I used to create this project are “Angel of Sympathy and “Flower Maiden. All my colouring was done using my copic markers. I used glossy accents to create little dewdrops on the Calla Lilies. Using foam tape I rounded up the large Lilies after fussy cutting them from the original image to give it dimension. I layered the scalloped ovals on some coordinating patterned paper from my stash of paper to finish the project.

"Baby Aurora Friendship" by "The East Wind"

Hi Everyone, This is my entry for The East Wind "Friendship" challenge. I've played with the image to create a cozy scene. I've coloured it with my copics, popped one of the girls up with foam tape, to make it look like they are in a forest hanging out together. I cut two different patterned papers on the diagonal and attached them from the back to create the look of a single sheet. Again I used foam tape to pop the whole scene portion up for more dimension.

"Woman with Gardenias and Pearls" by "Aurora Wings"

This is my latest DT inspiration piece for the Corrosive Challenge Blog http://corrosivechallengesbyjanet.blogspot.no/
I've coloured this stunning image "Woman with Gardenias and Pearls" from the amazing art "Aurora Wings" https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/AuroraWings?ref=pr_faveshops with my copics. The black pearls were coloured using my black Wink of Stella to give them that extra sparkle. Using my Minc I foiled the sentiment and layered the card on some patterned paper to keep it simple and the image my focus.

"Sweet Escape"

 This is my entry over on Kit and Clowder Facebook for their February Challenge by "Sweet Escape" I've coloured my image and the grass on the right with my Copics and used Wink of Stella on the heart. I then fussy cut my image and popped her up with foam tape on the background patterned paper. I've used multiple different patterned papers and dies for this project to create my scene. I wanted a soft sentiment to go with the soft look of my project and found this sweet little one by Hampton Art and thought it was perfect. I've embossed it using Hampton Art embossing powder in an off white colour and thought it looked perfect with the finished project.
