New Release Double Showcase at Aurora Wings

Once again I'm thrilled to be joining the Showcase Team for a gorgeous new double release on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.  I had the pleasure of working with the new Queen of the Autumn Forest, available HERE on and HERE on Etsy.  This beautiful new stamp is in the same loose and dreamy style as Lady Butterfly and Lady Butterfly 2 from the previous Showcase HERE.

Here's a closeup of Queen of the Autumn Forest.  Although I've colored her with Copics in Autumn hues, she'd be equally beautiful using palettes inspired by the other seasons as well, don't you think? I've added Distress Stickles in Frayed Burlap to her wings and gold gel pen throughout her dress and hair.  What an elegant celebration of my favorite season.  The pearl swirls remind me of Autumn breezes and I've added additional texture with real skeleton leaves and artificial velvet ones.  The DP is K&Co and I've matted with metallic copper, gold and white crinkle vellum and gold glitter paper.

And there's another gorgeous new mermaid, too!  Be sure to check out the gorgeous new Fins and Pearls, available HERE on and HERE on Etsy.  The Showcase Team has done such beautiful things with her as well.

And what's a Showcase without a coupon?  Here ya go!  available at both Aurora and Aurora Wings Etsy.

And if that isn't exciting enough, looky HERE!  Can you combine them?  That would be YES!  

Tell me this isn't the cutest Sprite EVEH!!!!!!  And you can get her for FREE with a minimum $5.00 purchase (after coupon) today through Sunday, October 22nd.  Please check out my project with Wine (or Grape, yeah, not in MY house) Sprite HERE.  I consider her my very own special Sprite.  ;D  Don't miss her!
