Shine Bright

It's time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings this week it is the turn of team Stella and the theme is MY FAVOURITE QUOTE.

I don't really have a favourite quote that comes to mind, so I had a look around the internet and this one stood out to me Dream Big, Shine Bright, Sparkle More.

I have been a member of the Aurora Wings DT Family for a couple of years now and thought it would be nice to go back to the beginning and re-colour my first Aurora Wings image and still one of my favourites 'Gardenia & Pearls', it is such an elegant image.

I kept the design simple and created the wording in Silhouette Studio and layered my coloured image onto it, just adding a simple bow and of course some Sparkles.

My two favourite coloured are teal and orange, so using Copics, I kept to this colour scheme.

To finish the image I used liquid peals in white Opal.

I look forward to reading all your favourite quotes incorporated into your projects.
