Double Delight

So excited for release day at Aurora Wings, even more so because it is a double release - yay

Mitzi has created a beautiful new sprite - Edamame, if like me you had no idea what this is, its an immature soybean still in its pod, they look just like peas.

So here she is, coloured up with Copics.

I used various dies Tattered lace corners, nor designs fancy square and a la-la land banner.

The papers are first Edition - Spring Drop and all the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added a sentiment in vinyl, but chose the wrong colour, as it doesn't photograph well on the patterned paper.

Challenges I would like to enter:-

Fab n Funky - Spring into Colour
Scrappers Delight - Anything Goes
Whimsy Stamps - Use a Diecut
Simon says Stamp - Pinterest Spring inspiration
Die Cuttin Divas - Welcome Spring

Now for the second image, which I just love, perfect for boys cards.

It's a Pirate Mermaid - Happy dance :)

For this project I covered an MDF door hanger in paper, once the glue was dry I sanded down the edges with a sanding block.

I cut up a memory box wave die and glued around the top edge and again added a vinyl sentiment.

I colored this little guy with Copics too and added some SN Pencil over parts of the tail.

I finished off with some dew drops for bubbles and tiny gems for his jewels.

Challenges I would like to enter:-

Southern Girls - Boys, Boys Boys
The Male Room - Under Water
Digi Choosday - Anything but a square card
