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!!

Hello all, and welcome back to another showcase from the amazing Mitzi/ Aurora Wings!
This time around we have 2 images in the same "series" -

Crop it!

The August holiday is done, and we've got a shiny new challenge from the Aurora Team over at the Aurora Wings challenge blog!
This one has a simple theme to get you rollin':
I love this image, Viridis Incendia, so I had to figure out a way to keep the main parts and still do the cropping :) Here's my idea:
 Colours used are: G09, 17, 28.
YG00, 21, 23, 17. R59, 89.
V20, 22, 25, 28.
 Y06, 17, YR04, 09, R27. 
BV20, 23, 25, 29.
V04, 05, 06.
And them I added some simple embellies in the shape of liquid pearls (onix), pearls, and some small leaves.
