Harvest Elf

Here is my 2nd big coloring project as mentioned in my previous post.

It is a fab new image by Aurora Wings, called 'Harvest Elf'.

She was such a joy to colour, using all my favorite autumn colours.

This is the image all coloured up, before I added her to my project, she is about 8" x 6", so pretty big, but there is so much detail in there, I thought it would be a shame to go any smaller.

 I have used a mixture of Copics and Prisma Premier pencils for this image.

I went for a very simple design, so I could showcase the beautiful image Mitzi has created for us.

So I just added some die cut leaves I have had hanging around for ages and a spellbinder frame.

I was also, playing around with the filters on my mac, which I have not done before and accidentally changed her to black and white, but I really liked how she looked, so I saved a copy to share.

Come and check out all the lovely inspiration by my team mates over on the Showcase Blog and of course to get a copy for yourself here.

There is also a discount code available for you.

  2. I thought your colored image was already breathtaking, so imagine my delight when I saw your completed project, photographed in a gorgeous setup. :D Everything here is so beautiful - your attention to detail, gorgeous autumn color palette, the larger size - all work to create this vibrant piece of art! You know your work is awesome when it looks great also in black & white (Your full range of values is clearly there. It's a spectacular, solid work. ;) ) Thank you so much for bringing such a beauty to the new release showcase at Aurora Wings today.

    Big hug,

  3. Such a beautiful creation and colours.
    Thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week :)

  4. Their images are always drop dead gorgeous by themselves, as you showed with your gray scale photo, but you did a phenomenal job with it. The simple design of your card beautifully showcases the image. I really wish we could find sprites and fairies in nature, but they do such a good job of hiding!

    Thanks for coming Back to Nature with us at Cut it Up!

  12. I am just discovering your fabulous image. Incredible coloring. What Spellbinders die did you use? It really suits! And I love the leaf dies. Who made them? Fall is my favorite season, and this card really evokes the warmth, color and coziness of the season.
