Aurora Wings Challenge #55 -- The Elements (Second Entry)

Aurora Wings Challenge #55 -- The Elements (Second Entry)

This is my second entry to the challenge on the Aurora Wings website, Challenge #55 The Elements. When I first saw Viridis Incendia, I thought she was a mermaid who captured a butterfly and brought it underwater to eat. In Mitzi's Etsy shop, she is described as "a spirit of the carnivorous plant", hehe oops! Oh well, I'm calling this the Air Element, for the butterflies... yeah, that's it. ;) I will also use her in the Facebook challenge as well, which is why I used the FB challenge sketch for this design.

Again, she was coloured long ago, and put in my pile. I used Copic markers to colour her (sorry no idea about the colours), and added some Stickle Pearls and Glitter glue, as well as a few blue gems. I followed the FB challenge sketch, and did the exact same circle cuts as my first entry. For the smaller circles, I used papers from the Mariposa Matstack. I love butterflies, so I have a LOT of butterfly papers in my stash. I went with a beige paper for the background, to let the image do the popping.

For embellishments, I kept it simple, a few blue gems and flowers. Since the sketch includes what can be interpreted as ribbons, I added a blue ribbon, and a thinner white one. Tada! Entry #2 done.

 

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Another gorgeous entry from you, Jody! I love how you cropped the Viridis Incendia image into a circle, as the image has a lot of circular movement going on. The color palette is lovely, and I love your interpretation of the sketch from AW's FB group contest for August, too. Thank you for this lovely entry in our Elements challenge at Aurora Wings.

Jody, you are ROCKIN' these challenges! I really get the feeling of air movement, not only in the image, but also your paper choices for the circles. Another fab entry for BOTH the challenges. Thanks so much for joining us at Aurora Wings. xxD Reply to this comment
