New Double Showcase Release for Aurora Wings

I'm joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team again for a double release of fabulous new digis.  As you know, there is something for everyone at Aurora Wings, from the cute and whimsical, to the elegant and opulent and even some dramatically dark and mysterious images, all springing from Mitzi's wonderful imagination and amazing artistic talent.  Today you'll be seeing two totally different subject matters and styles.  I'm sure you're going to love them both, so be sure to visit the Showcase Blog and be inspired.

I have the pleasure of introducing the full version of 'Jellyfish Adventure', an adorable addition to the ever popular Mermaids and Mer-kids. I've
used the png version which allows you to print over digital paper and then color the image with your choice of medium.  Here I've used Copics in colors inspired by actual photos of jellyfish (gotta love Google).  The stamp is also available as a jpg HERE.

'Jellyfish Adventure' is also available in a simple version with no additional jellyfish.  It is also available in both jpg and png versions as well.

Now you may have noticed that my project pic looks a little murkier than the first coloring version above.  I really wanted the illusion of an underwater scene, so I lightened another digital paper in my Printmaster Platinum program from Gecko Galz and printed it on transparency for an overlay.  Bubbles, bubbles EVERYWHERE.  LOL

Finally, I printed the same bubble paper in a darker version to frame the piece and trimmed some fab ribbon from May Arts into seaweed strands.  The starfish and shell are from JoLee's and the sentiment is a strip from Voyage Beneath the sea from Graphic 45.

I'm keeping the second release a total surprise, (okay, one hint, she's called 'Lady of Compassion') but I will tell you she's a limited edition, available for one month only and previously an exclusive to the Gardens & Goddesses coloring book.  Be sure to visit the Showcase Blog and see this gorgeous new stamp.  Thanks so much to the fabulous Showcase Team for letting me join them again.

WooHoo!  Look what Mitzi has for us!

BTW, 'Jellyfish Adventure' would be fab for our "Mermaid Magic" FB contest that runs through August 31st (don'tcha think?) and don't forget our current Blog Challenge, "Theatrical" that ends Saturday, September 3rd.

Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.

  5. You never cease to amaze me with your creative vision and artistic skills, Donna! I love how you created this beautiful underwater scene with the background and overlay. They really capture the 'depth of field' and bring the viewer right into the water, into a fabulous fantasy world of mermaids. Pure magic!!

  14. Wow I adore this project - the beautiful background paper and printing the jellyfish on top, then doing it as an overlay. The finishing touches like the border in a darker hue and the cute embellishments is lovely. I keep my G45 end pieces from 12x12 papers too. Never know when they may come in handy.
