Aurora Wings Double Feature Release!

I'm joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team on the Showcase Blog today for the Double Feature Release of Edamame Sprite and Little Pirate. These two cuties are making their debut today in the AW Etsy Shop.  I started with the adorable Edamame Sprite because I had the perfect DP in my stash.  



Tell me she's not precious with those 3 little sweet peas in her arms.  She's colored with Copics with enhanced shading from Prismacolor pencils in my fave color of sweet pea flower (my birthday month flower) that just happened to match the DP, too.  She's cut and mounted with Spellbinders Grand Ovals and popped with foam for a bit of dimension.  I'm not telling her that she's really Edamame which are (yummy) soybeans in Japanese. LOL 



For embellishment, I cut apart some silk sweet peas, tied them with a picot edged ribbon and used one of the leaves for a pea pod with flat back pearls for the peas. 

I'm entering this card in the Cute Card Thursday Spring Fever challenge, DL.Art Thankful Thursday ATG, Inspiration Destination ATG, Crafting for All Seasons Pastel Hues, Fab 'n' Funky Spring into Color, {Pin}spirational Challenge #136, the Crafter's Cafe What Season are you In? (Spring), Inky Impressions Pastel Colors, the Outlawz Twisted Thursday My FavoriteCreative Fingers ATG, Show Your Digi Love Aurora Wings, QKR Stampede Think Spring and The Paper Shelter Spring Delights



My second project is a tag with Little Pirate.  He's the newest in the Aurora Wings "Mer-kids" collection.  You can find all these sweeties along with their grown up counterparts in the Aurora Wings Etsy Shop HERE.  The funky Dp is K&Co from ancient my stash and I've distressed it with my scissors and inked the edges.  Tag is cut from kraft with a deep sea blue mat.  The anchor is a Magnolia die and I've added Card Candy doubloons and  some distressed gauze.



Little Pirate is also colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut and popped.  He's trying so hard to be a toughy, but we know better.  LOL  He's quite the treasure himself.  xx



I've embellished with a skull and crossbones charm from my stash on top of a Magnolia distressed flag, a Tim Holtz Word Band, vertical Alpha Beads and rope and fibers from my stash.  There's more fabulous inspiration from the Showcase DT HERE (and maybe a little surprise for you ;D)  so be sure to check it out. Thanks so much guys for letting me join you this week.

I'm entering my tag in the Southern Girls Boys, Boys, Boys challenge, the Moving Along With the Times Tags challenge, the DL.Art March Monthly Linky challenge, Crafting by Designs Masculine Projects, The Male Room Under Water and Addicted to Stamps and More ATG.
