Good morning or afternoon, depending on where you are. I was delighted to receive an email from Mitzi (Aurora Wings Artist) a couple of months ago asking if I would like to be a Guest designer for the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. It took me a whole 5 seconds to say yes.
I love working with her images, and the main problem I faced was which image to use. In the end I chose Pearls which can be found here.
I have to admit that I wouldn't like to be the person posting this card as not only is it an 8'x8' but it is really heavy due to all the layers.
She did take a while to colour up and I admit that this was the 4th version. She is straight cut, as are all the layers. The corner swirl is from Tonic, and the DP is from Nitwits and I actually chose my colours from the paper. The black layers are all made from black mirror board that really does pick up the light well.
A close up of the image. She is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers. I added glossy accents to her eyes and earrings.
I was trying unsuccessfully to show that I also added SN clear sparkle to the pearls in her hair.
The flowers are all from WOC and the butterfly, pearls, ribbon and button are all from my stash.
A view of the middle of the card.
I am sure there are thousands of Aurora Wings fans out there, and hope many of you will join in with the Challenge which can be found here.
It only remains for me to say a huge thank you to Mitzi and all her designers for allowing me to be a guest on her fabulous blog.
Thanks for taking the time to look
