New Release Aurora 'Hair Tree'
So here's a brief break from Halloween to bring you today's new release from The East Wind. This beauty is Aurora 'Hair Tree'. Isn't she just gorgeous? Kept the card pretty simple to showcase the fabulous image. New snowflake dies are Oh crap! I'm having a bout of insomnia, it's 2:00 am, and I can't find the darn things, it's too dark in here. Sorry. However, here's my Tip for Top Tip Tuesday. I've run my die cuts through my Xyron to adhere better to the card stock. To avoid the adhesive "strings", I've gone around the cuts both inside and out with my fine tip stylus before peeling off the top layer...no strings. WooHoo! Sentiment is a peel off.
I've colored her with a mixture of Copics, a silver gel pen and pencils. Added some Stickles and tiny stars to her gorgeous 'do and a few white feathers to her top.
Here's a better view of the fabulous shine prior to fussy cutting. There are Glossy accents on her eyes and lips, as well. There are some beautiful alternative colorings on TheEastWind FB page including an amazing one by Unky herself. Go check them out.
