Aurora Wings - Sprite Delight V

You read it correctly! Our "annual" Sprite Delight challenge is upon us - 
and we all love MItzi's sprites! 

 I love tis image, but I hardy ever make food-related cards.. I don't know why - maybe my friends are just not foodies?? Well, in any case, I just had to colour it up now! 
 Sadly, my list of colours used has been misplaced, and I do not remember them all by heart... I know I've used the E's in 21-29, as well as 40-43 and 44-49. My vanilla ice is Y11, and E's 50-53. Strawberry and cherry are R27, 29, 59, RV99. And skin is, as always, E000, 00, 01, 21 and 15.
I rummaged through my stash to find fitting decorations, and I had some mini cakes in a small box - perfect! And then I remembered my stash of fimo sticks, and started slicing up some from the strawberry-stick :)

Showcase time!

Hello everyone, and welcome to a new Aurora Wings showcase!
This time we have 3 lovely sprites to show you, and as this will be a long post for me, I won't list my colours used (please, ask if you need to know! I am happy to tell you :) )

We got Easter Bunny Sprite, Anemone Sprite, and my favourite: Unicorn Sprite.
You can find them all in the STORE

First out is a cutesy card with nthe Easter Bunny sprite - isn't he just adorable??! 
Lightly decorated with feathers and flowers, and some beads that looked like easter eggs ^_^

And then we have the Anemone Sprite. I know these are brightly coloured flowers, so I went for a B/W approach, with hints of burgundy and blue to match the Anemony in her hands. Diescuts, flowers and geniestones alongside some lace for embellishment. 

And lastly, my unicorn twins! 
You all know me, I love unicorns, and I love gore. What could be better then goring up this cutesy image?? 
So, one is a Unicorn Sprite, and the other is a Sprite wearing a unicorn... moahahaha *evil laugh* 

 To stay with the cute vibe here, she has some cute diecuts and flowers for decorations.
 And to gore this one further, I added spiders, skulls and some eyes, letting the halloween papers work their magic. I used a Holtz embossingfolder to make a gorey vibe over the image - can you see the drops pouring down? *evil grin* 

Thank you all for coming to see my makes; I hope you feel inspired by the DT's work!

Aurora Wings - Bingo

Welcome back! 
Did you all see the midway reminder from the Stella Team? :D Amazing, am I right!?

Well, Team Aurora is back with a new shiny challenge for you all, and this month we are running a bingo-board! You can go for elements, or colours, or both (like I did) :)

I've used the Whimsical Bat Flower Sprite, mostly because I love Tacca's! It's an amazing flower :)
And also, because this guy just looks so badass! 

 My selected bingo rows are: Diecuts, glitter and layers & Purple, green and black :)
 My lil' fella is coloured with BV 21, 23, 25 and 29, as well as FB2, B69 and B37. 
Skintones are E00, 01, 21 and 15. Hair is E21, 23 and 25.
I've added flowers and leaves to make a foliage vibe, and I added some metal flowers to put emphasis on his badassittude :P

Aurora Wings releases!!

Hello everyone!
I hope you are ready, we have all of three shiny new images from Mitzy that we want to show you! 

Due to life, I only got to prepare two of them - but they are all shiny, and you can see them all on the showcase blog! 

We have the Happy Pierrot Sprite, Snowdrop Sprite and the Bachelors Button Sprite - all available in the store. I've had a play with the first two
(To not make the post too long, I have not listed my copics used - please ask if you need it, and I will happily post it)

 I needed a card for a boy that turns 6, so I decided to use this cutie for that  - adding some fun papers and alot of colours!



 And for this lovely lady I pondered about doing alternative colours - but I love Snowdrops too much and had to go traditional! Never fear, I printed several, and will be making more cards with this! 

Thank you for coming to have a look at my humble abode - I hope I get to see you play along with these amazing new images!

Aurora Wings - Anything goes

Hello - and happy new year! 
Welcome to yet another amazing year with the peeps at Aurora Wings; I hope you join us for all our play and fun in 2018!

We kick off the year in a noce and chillaxed way:
ANYTHING GOES! doesn't get better than that?? :D

This cutie, Snowflake Sprite, is a new addition to the family, she joined us before christmas - and I love her! I am a total softie for snowflakes ^_^ 
 I kept the design simple, with a light mint paper from Kaiser Kraft, the white dots are velvet, and I think they add a nice, soft and snowy feel to it. All my other embellies are from my stash; Ribbon, diecuts and some mini snowflake bling,
 She's coloured up using basically every light shade in the B, BV, BG, G and V series of my copics - and embellished with mini bling and liquid pearls.
My sentiment reads: 
If a Snowflake was a hug, I'd send you a whole blizzard!

Thank you for looking!

Angel of Sympathy - Metallics

Ho ho ho! 
It's the last challenge of the year for Aurora Wings Team Aurora; I hope you've enjoyed playing with us! This last challenge is perfect for so many cards, and for you that just started christmascards, this one will fit perfectly! 
I decided to rather go for a cottonscreen with a larger image, using "Angel of Sympathy"

 She's a bit smaller than an A4 paper, and primarily coloured with copics :) I've added a black frame, and some simple filigree corners.
 Her dress is coloured in N0 - N5.
Wings: E81, 84, 87. 
Scarf: B00, B01, B02, B04, B06. 
Hair: E37, E29, E49.
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 21, 15, and R20.
Rays: Y11, Y01, Y04, YR12.

And then, you might ask yourself, where is the metallic part?? 
Well! It's the callas! :D I did them entirely in Mona Lisa leafmetal (variegated Sunrise and Azure), and then I shaded them with T5, 6 and 8. 
I also added some metallic details to the wings ;)

Queen Moth and Orchidia 2

Hello hello!
As you are reading this, I am on my way to a vaccation with my inlaws in the Netherlands - I hope you take joy in these colourings, as I did not have the time to make cards with them!
We had to pack, and deliver the cats to my parents before we left -  generally alot to do, just for leaving! 

As you might have gotten by now, this is a showcase for 2 new images from Aurora Wings, and as always MItzi has done an amazing job! 
I am ever so happy and proud to introduce; 
Queen Moth and Orchidia 2!!

 For Queen Moth I went with my traditional greyscale, with alot of soft splashes of colours.
I've basically used all the greys I had in my copics!!
 To the background I added some G40, V00 and R81, along with blender. 
 The butterflies are in Y21, YR16 and some YR04. The hues are Y11. 
And the plants got some soft treatments with G40, YG61 and R81.


Orchidia 2
 For this one I muted all the colours except some of the orchids. I cannot remember all the colours I used, as said I was stressing with everythign, and I forgot to write them down (a)
 Her skin is in any case W0-W5, and the greens are G21, 23 and 24. 

I hope you enjoyed my showcase, and that you will come to play with us!!
