New Double Release Showcase for Aurora Wings


Mitzi, artist extraordinaire of Aurora Wings, has done it again with a fabulous Double Showcase of fantasy and magic.  I have the pleasure of joining the Showcase team to introduce Jellyfish Sprite, available HERE in jpg and HERE in no background png.  Could she be any sweeter?  Her detailed frilliness called for the girliest of colors. In my mind she just HAD to be pink (at least this time) and with her flowing tentacles floating about like ribbons, I immediately thought of the most important pink ribbon of all...that of Breast Cancer Awareness.  The beautiful pink crinkle ribbon here is from DL.Art.  The sentiment "Hope floats" seemed perfect for the digi AND the cause.



Here's a closeup of Jellyfish Sprite.  She's colored with Copics, mainly R81, R83, and R85, with a little RV 52.  Fussy cutting this intricate design was a bit of a challenge, but I suggest always cutting the small interior portions first with your craft knife and then cutting outwards from the center, without removing the excess paper until a section is finished.  If and area seems stuck, go over the it again instead of trying to pull it away, or you may end up ripping off a portion of the image.




Here's a side view on the tent card.  The window was cut with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen.  I've recolored some digital paper from Gecko Galz La Isla Bonita pack pink, in my printing program, and added some Skittles (remember those?) as dimensional bubbles.  The computer generated sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Circle over a Beaded Circle I've embellished with pearls.

The other release is totally different in character, but just as lovely.  Stunning, really.  Be sure to visit the Showcase Blog to see the amazing projects. (Nope, no hints.  Go LOOK!)


Here's a weekend Coupon code for Etsy only.


And a fabulous Gift with Purchase available through Oct. 9th and good at either shop.


And just a little reminder:  Today is the last day to enter our FB contest, All things Autumn and tomorrow our For Men & Boys Blog challenge ends at 11:55 pm EDT.  Hope to see you there.


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

  1. Donna, this is a fantastic work for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the gorgeous pink crinkle ribbon in the classic shape, so subtly tucked behind the fancy, frilly jellyfish. I agree, my first color impression I got while I worked on her line art was shades of pink. I mean, she looks so girly and sweet, right? I'm amazed, once again, by your patience and skills when it comes to fussy cutting. And the advice you gave here is pure gold! Thank you so much for this fabulous sample for our new release showcase at Aurora Wings today! And THANK YOU for all the work you do for AW blogs!! Mitzi xxx
