New Release at The East Wind

There's a gorgeous new image at The East Wind today called Aurora 'New Year' Kimono.  Did you know that Unky has a new stamp EVERY Monday and Friday and you can see it colored by DT members on TheEastWind FB Group page? She's so beautiful and I was thrilled to finally use my Tattered Lace Oriental fan die.  The gorgeous digi paper is from the Gecko Galz Mori Girl paper pack.  So many beautiful motifs in that pack I had a hard time choosing but went with, what I consider, traditional New Year's colors.

Here's a close up of the gorgeous image.  She's mainly colored with Copics, but I found I had more control using Prismacolor pencils for her hair. I've added a few bead so the flowers in her hair and Asian looking peel off corners.

I'm entering this in the Outlawz Twisted Thursday ATG Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday ATG, Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, A Little Bit Crafty ATG-but not Christmas, Inspiration Destination ATG, C.R.A.F.T. ATG Challenge, 613 Avenue Create ATG, Papertake Weekly Pick a Fave or ATG
