Hey everyone, It's new release time at Aurora Wings and we have some lovely projects over at the Showcase blog. yes it's a new sprite - Venus Fly-Trap.

Isn't she adorable.  I have coloured her with Copics with a little Pencil for shading.

I used a green distress ink around the edges and also to colour the leaf diecuts.

The sentiment is cut in vinyl.

I really wanted to make a pop up card in the shape of a venus fly-trap, but it turned out pretty tricky, so instead I went for a surprise inside, the card.

I really love this little sprite, it brings back memories of my childhood and desperately trying to get my Nan's fly-trap to snap shut, I don't think I ever succeeded though!!

You can find this cutie in the Digi Shop.

  1. Brilliant, Julie! Your colors just sing and I love the gorgeous die cut. Inside is a fab surprise. Love, love, LOVE that sentiment. xxD

  2. Love this clever design and your beautiful coloring in clean, bright colors!! The sentiment is perfect for this little Venus Flytrap. I, too, remember having the pot of this plant when I was young, but now that you mention it, I do not recall ever succeeding in making the leaves shut! lol Thank you so much for this lovely sample for our new release today!!
