I'm thrilled to be joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team for the double release of two new glorious Aurora Wings stamps. This beauty is called "Weeping Rose". My first thought was a sympathy card because of the rather sad look on her face, but this image is much more versatile than that. I instead chose the sentiment Thinking of You so it could be used, not only for sympathy, but a variety of occasions. the elegance of the image called for a special mat so I used my spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 and backed it with shiny gold card stock. The layout is simple, just DP from Graphic 45, another later of gold and a simple white card. The only embellies are matte gold half pearls in the corners and some gold rosebud stickers at the top.
Here's a closeup of "Weeping Rose". She's colored with Copics, and although my first inclination was to go in with pencils for more shading and drama, I decided I liked the soft monochromatic look here.
I got a new dimensional medium called nuvo Crystal Drops this past weekend which work like Liquid Pearls but have suspended glitter in them. I thought this was the perfect project on which to try them. Yummy! I've also added Diamond glaze to her lips, but for the life of me could not get them to shine in a ic. It's a rather gloomy rainy day and lighting has been a challenge, (especially with the shiny gold card stock I used.
