Aurora Wings February Showcase

It's a Happy Day on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog with the release of 4 new Sprites!  I'm thrilled to be joining the Showcase team to introduce the newest of the Baby Animals Sprites.

First off we have Chicken Sprite.  This little cutie took me awhile.  I couldn't decide which breed of chicken to choose.  So many fun options, I know I'll be using her again and again.  I printed this one in a lighter gray for a semi no lines approach but with the black and gray color scheme I finally chose, it's not as evident.  She's colored with Copics and a Memento dual marker for some crisp detail.  People who know me will not be surprised at the sentiment.  ;D

And here is sweet Lamb Sprite.  Animals babies are Springtime's promise of new beginnings.  I've used papers from the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime pack to make a sweet wall hanging.  Flowers are from Recollections and gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art.

It's been lovely weather for ducks here lately, so Duckling Sprite fits right in.  I colored this sweetie with Copics in colors that match the adorable ducklings at Blackhawk Center in Danville.  Such a delight!  

And finally, we have Llama Sprite.  Hubby and I wave to her every morning as we pass the herd on our walk.  I couldn't help but use a Spanish sentiment pun and bright papers from K&Co.

Of course it wouldn't be a Showcase without a coupon, so here ya go, good at both shops through Sunday, February 25th.  Be sure to stop by the Showcase Blog to see the fabulous inspiration by the Showcase Designers and guests.

Don't forget our new challenge, Over the Rainbow, now going on at the Aurora Wings Challenge blog.  Hope to see you there.

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


  1. Wonderfully sweet cards and images! Welcome spring!

  2. So beautiful! Every one of them, Donna! You've brought all of them to life with your skilled coloring and eye for design. The personality you bring to each of them is delightful!! Thank you so much for the awesome samples for today's new release. M xxx

  3. o wow, your examples are amazing and so very sweet, love them all. Duckling sprite is so wonderfully coloured, amazing !! The chicken sprite is amazing as well, funny thing is these were the colours I originally planned, but changed them to brown to fit my creation, stunning creation with each sprite, lots of hugs, Marion

    1. Too funny Marion! I actually started with the brown but screwed up so I switched gears to black and white. How about that?

  4. Hi, Donna! All of your projects are beautifully colored, as usual, and the composition is spot on! The red, black and white palette on your "lil chickie" card is visually powerful. Love it! Thanks for sharing with us at Shopping Our Stash!
    Chana, DT

  5. I'm speechless with the wonderful and amazing colouring of each of these awesome images.

  6. I'm so pleased you are on the Showcase Team - your work is stunning.
    These cards are just awesomely gorgeous :-D
    I'm glad you chose to colour the chicklet like that - she is the same as my chikkins. I breed English Light Sussex and hatch them from eggs in my incubator and that is what they look like :-D xxxxx
