Aurora Wings

I could not resist another post today as I have recently discovered and fallen in love with the digital stamps by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff  of Aurora Wings, they are the most beautiful fantasy works of art and I have been looking and looking over the last couple of months but was not sure I could do the image justice but I finally took the plunge and purchased a couple to colour.

The image I am sharing with you today is called 'Flower Ballerina'.

I started by watching my week 1 video of the skin and hair class at Kit & Clowder so I could try and get good skin colour and shading.

I was really happy with the end result but unfortunately I took this photo at night and it looks yellow, although it is a lovely pink shade.

I wanted the flowers and petals to be a girly mix of blue and purple so picked 3 copics to work with:

BV000, RV10 & BG10 and then layered the BV000 & BG10 over each other and finished the edge of the petals with the RV10.  I went in afterwards with BG15 & BV00 to darken up some spots.

I love the colour combination and hope from the photos below you can see the true colour of the skin.

When it came to putting her on a card, I must say I was a little stumped so left her a couple of days.

Then I remembered a cute dandelion stamp I have from Inkylicious and thought I would stamp and heat emboss the background.

So I mixed 3 different embossing powders till I got just the shade I was looking for.

Cut the image and layered with a spellbinder die added a large pink bow (which I then changed to Blue) and again heat embossed a sentiment by Inkylicious.

Here is the finished result.

I hope you like her as much as I enjoyed colouring her ....... right I am off to colour more of these gorgeous stamps  :)
