When I first saw Mitzi's Siren digi I knew I had to have her. I coloured her immediately, then stuck her in my "ok, so now what do I do with this?" pile (I have a BIG pile too). The challenge on the Aurora Wings website, Challenge #55 The Elements, was a perfect opportunity to use her, plus it doesn't hurt that I can also use it in their Facebook challenge as well. The FB challenge has a sketch to follow, which is awesome, as my brain doesn't have to come up with a design. ;)
Since I coloured her so long ago, I've forgotten the colours I used. All I remember is that I used my Copic markers, and added some Stickle Pearls for her necklace and headpiece. So now that I have a sketch to follow, I used my Spellbinders Grand Circles to cut her out. I found that the next size up in the dies was too big for the mat, so I pulled out my Silhouette and created circles that gave me a smaller mat size. I found some purple 6x6 papers in my stash, cutting them in smaller Spellbinder circles, and my Silhouette for their mattings. I had this dark blue paper, which seemed perfect for the background.
Next I found some brown ribbons that matched closely to the starfish in her hair. I remembered I had some shells and starfish in my stash for embellishments and added some pearls in the corners. I have stickers for all the Atlantic Provinces, so I found one I liked: Nova Scotia "Canada's Ocean Playground", which is perfect, as that is the motto on our license plates!
Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
