A new challenge begins today at Aurora Wings and do we have a surprise for you! Not only is our theme the popular Sprite Delight (IV), but we have an adorable freebie, Pansy Sprite, available to download on the Challenge Blog to use in the challenge (or not) but please be advised, that for this challenge only, you must use an Aurora Wings Sprite (other than the Big Eyed Doll faced images with Sprite in the title) to enter the challenge.
I've made a wall hanging using Graphic 45 papers from the once Upon a Springtime pack and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations. It was difficult to choose colors, since there are so many color combos for pansies, but the gorgeous ribbon from the new DL.Art Intimate Bundle, matched perfectly to one of my favorites.
Here's a closeup for the sweet new freebie, Pansy Sprite, all colored up. You can download this cutie on the AW Challenge Blog HERE. She's colored with Copics from a pic I found on Yahoo. To be honest, I find it easiest to find a huge selection of pictures for reference just typing in "pansy", for example, and doing a web search on Yahoo and clicking on the "Image Results" like THESE, rather than Google.
I've also added Pansy Border also available as a 3 Pack HERE to complete my Spring Garden theme.
Here's the dimensional shot of my wall hanging. I cut the center of the Graphic 45 image with a craft knife and glued it to more Graphic 45 DP, then popped the rest of the image frame with foam before adding the die cuts and fussy cut AW images. The Pansy border was just attached with Glue Dots at the very edges and Pansy Sprite was popped with foam on top. The Heartfelt Creations gate was attached with 1/8th " Score tape just at the outer edges and the pediment was bowed and attached with Glue dots and adhesive pearls.
Be sure to visit the AW Challenge Blog to download your free Pansy Sprite and see the gorgeous inspiration from my DT sisters. As always, you may enter up to 3 times with an AW Image and for this challenge only, you must use an Aurora Wings Sprite to enter. Be sure to check out the newly remodeled Aurora Wings Digi Shop for lower prices and easier navigation, too. Can't wait to see what you create.
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
