We're still having loads of fun with the Bingo Challenge at Aurora Wings as we continue with a mid-challenge inspiration from the Stella Team. Here's the board with tons of possibilities as you can choose colors, elements or both from any row.
To be honest, I had a hard time deciding on colors (in fact lately, I've had a hard time deciding on ANYTHING) so I asked my Aurora Team buddy Susan what she thought, since she was familiar with what I'd done previously for this challenge. She suggested the purple, pink and white diagonal and there ya go. I thought the gorgeous Wings and Petals, available HERE on AW.com and HERE on Etsy would be perfect for that Springy palette. Now I did plan on using the elements for that row as well, but in the end, I managed a full BLACKOUT using ALL of them as the design progressed. WOOHOO!
Here's a closeup of the divine Wings and Petals. This is the first time I've colored her, with my Copics, of course but it certainly won't be the last. I had to print her quite small to fit in the beautiful die cut from the Garden Classics Collection by Janine's Art. She's slightly cropped to a 3 1/2" circle so I wasn't able to manage as much detail in the coloring as I would have liked but I did add some Stickles to the wings of the butterflies and clear glitter Nuvo Drops to what looked like dew drops scattered about to me.
Wings and Petals is one in a series of gorgeous women in profile representing the 4 Seasons. Wings and Petals represents Spring, Fins and Pearls is Summer and the new Vines and Berries represents Autumn. Stay tuned for Winter. I, for one, can't wait! However, I'm sure there are plenty of you out there who've had enough of Winter already this year.
Continuing with the elements needed for the BLACKOUT, here we have cheesecloth fabric dyed with Copic reinker, layered with two white flowers, a crinkle ribbon bow from DL.Art and a stickpin I layered with beads. I purchased the gorgeous pink lace at LAST year's Scrapbook Expo and have been hoarding it ever since. Do ya blame me? Yumbo!
Here are more die cuts, from the Butterfly Exhibit die by Memory Box. I cut the die twice and cut it apart and layered several for dimension. There's more Stickles along the edges of their wings and I used Nuvo drops on their bodies. You can also see the layers of card stock. The patterned DP is from K&Co, my favorite to use with Mitzi's magical images.
The final element was a sentiment and I was thrilled to find one that I thought was fitting in the Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker pack. I layered it twice with scraps on my desk and there ya go! The final outcome came as a complete surprise but I sure had a ball. Hope you have fun with our Bingo Board, as well!
Be sure to check out the lovely inspiration from my Stella Teamies and please come play along.
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
