Aurora Wings July Challenge

This month I am super excited to join the talented team and be a Guest Designer over on the main Aurora Wings Challenge Blog.

The theme is 'Wings' and Mitzi has plenty of beautiful winged images in the Digi shop.

I chose to work with an image I first used sometime ago - Shades of Blue, but I was never really happy with it.
This time I am so much happier with my colouring, I think this is mainly down to the colour tones I have chosen.

The image is coloured with Copics as is the background, which I then carefully dripped with Surgical Spirit.

I mixed up some Glossy Decopatch glue with extra fine glitter and painted it on the edges of the wings and also on the flowers that I have added all of which are from WOC.

I created the background myself using a free orchid clip art image, then tracing in the silhouette studio, duplicating it and adding to a square frame.

Thanks so much Mitzi for having me this month.
