Christmas Cactus

Yay, its new release time at Aurora Wings with the lovely Chrismas Cactus Sprite.

For my showcase inspiration I have coloured her with a mix of Copics and Prisma Premier pencils.  I wanted to get a nice blend of pink, orange and red, which I think I have achieved.

Not so happy with my skin, I think its time to clean those Copics!

I did a print and cut and layered onto my new Noor Design die, that I won in a recent completion on their facebook page, thanks Tracey, I love it and it cuts beautifully.

The backing paper has been in my draw for years, so no idea where it came from.

I decided to only add a couple of embellishments all cut on my Grand Calibur.  The ivy is by Tattered Lace and the Poinsettia is by Leane Creative.

Isn't she adorable and just in time for Xmas.
