Holiday Sprites New Release Showcase

What an exciting day for Aurora Wings Fans!  The Holiday Sprites New Release Showcase is finally here.  THREE brand new Holiday Sprites and SIX that were previously available only in the Christmas Sprites Coloring Book are making their debut as stand alone digis at both and AW Etsy.  WOOHOO!

I have the pleasure of showcasing the beautiful new Sugar Plum Sprite available HERE on and HERE on Etsy, and used a collection of papers from Recollections The Ballet stack to create a scene from the beloved Nutcracker. 

The tree was fussy cut and I've added glitter epoxy ornaments, and Nuvo drop garlands along with a jewel star and candle flames.  My mother recalled having to always have someone in the living room watching the tree as a young child because of the real candles, rather than lights.  Can you imagine?!?  I used my craft knife to cut around the holly in the DP to slide the tree under.  The glitter nutcracker was also fussy cut from a tag and popped.

Here's a closeup of Sugar Plum Sprite.  Isn't she just every girl's dream?  I've flipped her to face the tree and colored her with Copics in the plum shades of the DP, then added translucent glitter Nuvo drops to her tutu, hair and jewelry and a jewel crown. Jewel and glitter snowflakes complete the scene.

 Here are the links for Sugar Plum Sprite in either jpg or png for both shops.

And here are peeks at the two other newest Holiday Sprites.
