Four New Sprites at Aurora Wings!


EEEK!  I'm thrilled to be joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team to introduce 4 new members of the beloved Sprite Family.  Could anything be more exciting?  After a very long cold winter for many of us, it's finally safe to say that summer is here and these four floral beauties are ready to grace your crafty garden.  Here's Buttercup Sprite, as bright and sunny as a summer day.  Is she precious or what?  I've used papers form the Lemon Floral Stack from DCWV and a gorgeous die by Jeanine's Art from Find it Trading.  The sentiment is one from Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers.  The layered flowers in the corner are Prima.



Here's a closeup of Buttercup Sprite.  I've colored her with Copics in the traditional bright yellows normally associated the the flower, but she'd be equally adorable in any color that suits your imagination.  I generally take a look at photos of the actual flower to give me some direction and decided to add the center detail using small punches from my stash  The tiny beads in the center are called Prills and attached with a clear gel glue.  Links to this sweetie are below.
