April New Release Showcase for AuroraWings

So here we are with a new AuroraWings Showcase, even before our FB Challenge starts next Monday!  Nothing like new images to lift the spirits and I dare say our spirits need some lifting, not to mention the additional time most of us have to take our mind off things and enjoy our hobby.  So YAY!  All of my projects have been colored with Copic markers.

Mitzi's first new image, Peony Bridal Bouquet, expands the gorgeous options for these beautiful flowers. With so many colors to choose from, I know I'll be coloring them again and again.  Since I'd just used the original Peony Bouquet last month, to combine with the new Peony Sprite in rich pinks and reds, I went a with a much more muted palette to make a free standing shaped card to look like an actual bridal bouquet.  It's fussy cut and popped atop a base cut with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles and a ruffle of lace from my stash and only needed a lovely crinkle ribbon bow from DL.Art to finish it off.

Next up is Peony Corner, another versatile shape with many possibilities for creativity.  Again I went with a palette I'd not used previously and printed it quite small to fit a favor box, using a die from Momenta.  The sentiment and corners are delicate stickers and again, I've used ribbon from DL.Art.

Would you believe there's yet another gorgeous floral image to show?  Isn't this beautiful combination of Spring flowers stunning?  Spring Posy is another image I know I'll be coloring again and again. It's versatility really knows no bounds and pansies come in such a variety of yummy colors.  Here's another 'Thank you' that is supposed to look like the bouquet is being presented in a box that I've done using Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page with corners (remember them?) and scored and folded for dimension.  I filled it with some of the shredded tissue used in my previous pic.

Now the next image is a personal favorite of mine because Taurus is my sign, (as well as Mitzi's).  Although it's the 2nd sign of the Zodiac, it's the 3rd Mitzi has done in the Zodiac series, along with Gemini and Aries.  But just in case you don't have an earthy, loyal, sensual, determined, strong willed (read stubborn-who, me? ha!) babe in your orbit, Mitzi made a Taurus 2-pack of this lovely so you can color her with or without horns.  ;D  Of course this one I've colored with red hair and California poppies which are currently blooming where we live.

Here's the softer, gentler version. It's amazing how different this gal looks in another palette, eh? The gorgeous die is by Jeanine's Art and I pulled apart some Recollections flowers and doctored them up with Copics and a gel pen to coordinate with my coloring.  Sentiment on both projects are Small Talk Stickers from Tim Holtz.

All of the above images can easily be accessed using the New Release section HERE on and HERE on Etsy.

And how about a coupon, good through the weekend? 

But wait!  There's more!

This lovely image, called A Healing Prayer, is a Gift with Purchase, of any amount, through this weekend.  It will be sent via email from Mitzi, with love, to help you through this stressful time.  Enjoy and be well.
