First let's meet Aries Sprite and Taurus Sprite. Now certainly these cuties will make fabulous celestial or birthday creations, but I decided to think outside the box a bit and combine them for something a little different. We walk past a farm with a herd of goats each morning (lots of babies now, sooo cute!) and there are cows grazing all over the hills so I created a little farm scene and couldn't resist some puns for a new home card. The barn die is from Die-Versions, the grassy hill dies are from Lawn Fawn and the cloud is Spellbinders.
Okay now, here's Taurus Sprite and he's my FAVE because he's my sign. Had to laugh a bit when reading the Taurus traits Mitzi cited on the Showcase Blog. Uh, YEAH! (But it's HER sign too. LOL) Again, Copic coloring but my white gel pen was dry so I couldn't put sparkles on the star. :(

Next in line is Gemini Sprites, the Twins. I love that Mitzi made it a boy and girl, as my hubby has a twin sister. This could be used a a birthday card for her from him, or could also be used as an Anniversary card or for a late May-June wedding, don'tcha think? I used the png version against digital paper here with a digital sentiment.
Again, these cuties are colored with Copics with quite a bit of gold gel pen detail. I'm afraid it made the laurel wreaths in their hair a bit difficult to see with the hair colors I chose, but there's definitely a little sparkle.

Finally, here's Cancer Sprite, the fourth in this first series of Zodiac Sprites. I had fun creating a beach scene with papers from Graphic 45, Heidi Grace and BoBunny and some dimensional stickers from JoLee's.
Again, I've colored in Copics and realized after that this is the color crabs turn AFTER cooking. OOPS! I tried to make this star look a bit like a starfish.

I know you love 'em, so here's a coupon to go and get 'em, along with any other of Mitzi's fabulous images you fancy. Good through the weekend in both shops.
One more announcement for those of you who have been missing our challenges. Although we've closed the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog, we will resume challenges in June in our Stamps by Aurora Wings FB Group. Hope to see you there. xx
