There's more excitement on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog today with a brand new Double Release! Several of us from both the Aurora and Stella Design teams have joined the Showcase gals to introduce the newest member of the Seasonal Sprites, Spring Sprite, available HERE on Etsy and HERE in the AW Digi Shop. I've used the png version so I could print her directly on a journal page background from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. The background is a shabby style so I distressed the edges of all of the mats with scissors and inked with Brushed Corduroy. I even did a bit of dry brushing with gesso (because I couldn't find any white acrylic paint) here and there, although most is just in the background itself. I love Spring Sprite in this scene, but couldn't resist adding little friends from the Easter Bunny 2-pack.
Here's a closeup of the adorable Spring Sprite. I've colored her with Copics with just a bit of detail with Prismacolor pencils. I find that sometimes with using the png version with a detailed background, the digi gets a little lost. To bring her better into the foreground I've outlined her with WG Copics both 1 and 2 to shadow her a bit and help add some depth and make her shine.
Here is the first of the sweet little bunnies, available HERE on Etsy and HERE in the AW Digi Shop. Had I planned this better, I would have added them also with the png versions directly to the scene before printing, but hindsight is always 20/20. You can immediately recognize which version of the digi you're looking at in either shop by the background. The png versions in both shops have dotty background with a white image, rather than an artist's coloration, which means you can add them directly to a digital background and print them to color, no fussy cutting. The more flowing and intricate images are available in jpg only.
Fortunately though, I had these little guys sitting on my desk all colored, waiting for someplace to go. They were fussy cut and everything, so I'll I had to do was add them to the scene. Don't they look adorable with Spring Sprite in her Easter finery and cute bunny ears?
The other new release today is the gorgeous Lady Blossom, available HERE on Etsy and HERE in the AW digi shop. the possibilities are endless with this fabulous new image. Be sure to visit the Showcase Blog and see the amazing inspiration from the Showcase Team.
