October New Image Showcase for Aurora Wings

It's an exciting day today with 3 new Sprites debuting on the AuroraWings Showcase blog.  EEEK!  How fun! First off is Kitsune Sprite.  This mischief making fox with multiple tails is from Japanese folklore, a baby here, but she could grow up to be scary indeed.  Be sure to read about her legend in the Showcase post.  

My tree frame background die is by Gina Marie and I've used gold leaf stickers by Little B and gold script puffy alphabet stickers from the Paper Source.

Here's Kitsune Sprite's closeup.  I colored her with Copics as a red fox to compliment the warm fall colors in my scene with a little extra fur detail with Prismacolor pencils.  The sprig of Chinese lanterns adds to the autumn feel.

Next is Hepatica (or Liverwort) Sprite.  This wildflower grows in the forests of Europe and the Northeastern parts of the US.  Such a funny name for a sweet little flower, eh?  Here I've recycled a pocket envelope from Anthropologie and added a blank pull out tag topped with gorgeous crinkle ribbon from DL.Art.  I popped Hepatica Sprite on a rectangle of coordinating paper trimmed in silver border stickers.  The lace "Perfect" sticker hides the logo "perfectly" (after coloring it green with my Copics).  LOL

This tiny beauty grows in shades of purples, pinks and blues, but you'll see on the Showcase Blog that she's adorable in any color you choose.  Again, I've colored with Copics and added some tiny Nuvo drops to the stamens.

I'm adding this to the DL.Art October Linky Challenge, A Perfect Time to Craft October AG, ...

Last, but not least, is Indian Corn Sprite and I've gotta say, I had the most fun EVER coloring her.  Those multicolored ears just scream Fall, my favorite time of year and I was lucky to find a printed Autumn wreath in an old Scrapbook pad and frame block to bring it all together.  The sticker sentiment was so tiny that I mounted it on some plaid paper and added a flower to the frame so it didn't get lost in the noise.  The layers are popped and I added a crinkle ribbon bow from DL.Art.

I knew I wanted to really do some detail work with the kernels so I printed her at 5 inches.  I actually printed her twice and flipped one for variety a(nd in case I messed up). Again I went with Copics and used this photo as inspiration.

Now I can't wait to color her again.  Just think of the possibilities!

  1. You really knocked it out the park, Donna! Not at all surprising since fall is your favorite season and these images (well, at least two for sure) work so well in autumn theme projects. The red fox looks so precious in her beautiful forest surrounding, and I love that these Chinese Lanterns seem to be glowing from within - maybe a little of that kitsune magic at play. Hepatica baby looks stunning the way you colored her in blue on this lovely project of recycled envelope. I'm sure you're going to hear so much about the Indian Corn Sprite from everyone who sees it - what a fab job you've done with the kernels! It made me jealous as I haven't had a chance to color her yet! Thank you so much for these stunning projects for today's new release!! M xxx

  13. Dear Donna, thank you for all of your sweet comments for the Cat Lovers Hop. I am so, so very sorry to read about Goliath's passing. I know how much you loved him. It's been a few months, but time does not heal all wounds in my opinion. It's been 15 years since I lost my Muffin and I still miss him terribly. I seem to cry over Muffin whenever I hear of someone else losing a beloved kitty. I just read about Newton and Hobbes today too, so I've been shedding lots of tears this morning. My heart breaks for you, and I wanted to send you my sincerest sympathies, love, and hugs.

  14. Great selection of cards. Thanks for playing along with us at Crafty Animals. Lisa DT
