New Challenge at Aurora Wings

Another late post for me. One of these days I am going to feel normal, but I am getting better. I know that I am fighting depression because I have been coloring and creating at a sporadic rate and not my usual every day routine. Bummer! O

We have an amazing new challenge at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. I know that you are going to love this one. Our theme is “Sprite Delight.” See I told ya! I know that the world is in love with Mitzi’s sprites, and I know that a lot of you already have a growing collection of her digital sprites.

Why not add one more and join our “Sprite Delight” challenge. Mitzi has given you that one more for your collection. Check out the blog. Now you have no reason for not entering our challenge. You can create anything you want, but your project must have a fairy or sprite and it must be hand colored. If you use an Aurora Wings Sprite you may enter up to THREE times, but those of you choosing from another company must limit your entry to ONE. Please remember your image must be rubber or digital and MUST be hand colored. Onward to my project!

For my projects I decided to create with Mitzi’s Whimsical Dahlia Sprite. Isn’t she a cutie? Dahlia Sprite was colored with Copics and then mounted on several pieces of cardstock. I got a little carried away with my Copic’s YRs. I wanted more yellow, but I guess I was feeling a little heavy handed that day.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20
Leaves: G40, 82, 85, 99
Dahlia: E07, Y15, YR00, 02, 09
Background: Woo, 0, 1, 2, &15, YR00

I had some fun with my new flower dies and stamps. This was the first time I used them so I still need a little practice. The links are listed below.

My final recipe:
CS: SU in Early Espresso & Marigold Morning
DP: Gina K. Designs Sun-Kissed Autumn
Flowers: Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms stamp set, and 
Spellbinder’s/Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms and Ariana Lace Dies
Bling: USArtQuest Prills and Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen

I have not entered any challenges in a while;
therefore I would like to enter my Dahlia Sprite in the following challenges:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday – Anything Goes, must be square or rectangle
Party Time Tuesdays – Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown – Handmade Flowers
2 Cute Ink Challenges – Anything Goes

I really appreciate all of you stopping by. If you need any further information you can contact me.
