Our exciting New Release Showcase at Aurora Wings features angels among us. This first beauty is Angel of Remembrance 1. Her folded wings and downward gaze seem a bit wistful and reflective, perfect for, yet not limited to, a sympathy or celebration of life, or perhaps a "thinking of you" card for an uplifting message to a friend in need.
Here's a closeup of Angel of Remembrance 1. I've colored her with Copics, using initially the traditional reds for the gorgeous poppy blooms, that morph into red violets, purples and blues. It's amazing the different feelings this beautiful angel evokes in various colorways. Be sure to check out the Showcase Post for lovely examples from my teamies.
Angel of Remembrance 1
I'm entering this in the DL.Art September Linky Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #114, the Classic Design Team Open September, the Outlawz Festive Fridays Sympathy or ATG, International Art and Soul #67 Things with Wings...
Angel of Remembrance 2, with outstretched wings, also stands in a glorious bed of poppies like the first, but I chose to crop the image for a circular medallion center for a card I thought initially might be for a new baby or Christening. I planned on using pastel colors and somehow incorporating a rainbow in the background, but started playing with the 4 Copic colors I'd chosen on her wings,
The die cuts were all Grands from Spellbinders with the layers popped for dimension. The DP was actually from the MAMBI Baby Girl Stack that incorporated all of the colors quite nicely, but I did end up using a "Thinking of you" sentiment instead.
Here's the Angel of Remembrance 2 image in it entirety, that I'm sure I will use again in the near future, but I appreciate that Mitzi encourages creativity and fun with her images by allowing cropping and merging and the like.

So one more gorgeous image popped into the Showcase that I was unable to color. Could she be any more beautiful?
