Aurora Wings Challenge #66
Well talk about squeaking in at the last minute. This month's challenge over at Aurora Wings Challenge Blog ends tonight at 11:55 PM EST. SQUEAK! Just made it! This time their challenge was black & white with or without a splash of colour. Simplicity at it's best. I love it! So I picked Mitzi's Whisper of the Sea image and used my Cool Grey Copics with a splash of blue green. I have some old 6x6 pads from My Minds Eye in black & white for the matting and used a basic black cardstock for the card. Hope you enjoyed. Please join us in the next challenge or on Facebook. ..

Aurora Wings Blog Challenge - Crop It!
Mitzi has honoured, and surprised me by asking me to be a Guest Designer for her September Challenge, Crop It! I can't even begin to tell you how excited, scared, thrilled and amazed I am. Where to begin? Mitzi has so many amazing designs to chose from, and at this point in time, a lot of my art has been Steampunk themed. I have several of her Steampunk images, so I knew I'd be picking one of those. I printed Steampunk Angel onto X-Press It Copic Blending Card and coloured her using my Copic markers.  Dress - Red: R22, 37, 59, T10 Dress - Beige: E40, 42, 44 Skin: E50, 51, 11,..

Aurora Wings Challenge #56 Anything Goes
I am so not a blogger. I like to create for challenges, but I usually forget to blog about my design. Thankfully, the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog forces one to blog before entering one's creation. So here goes: I used one of my favourite images, Memento Mori for this challenge. I wanted a Halloween feel to this card, so I used papers from Echo Park Paper Co., “Under Your Spell”. For coordinating colours, I grabbed some orange and black cardstock from my stash. This beautiful image was coloured with Copic markers, and I used Mercury Glass Stickles for the details in the..

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 mar..

Aurora Wings Challenge #55 -- The Elements
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,..
