Aurora Wings Challenge #30: A Touch Of Class: Lady of the Forest Altered Picture Frame

Good Morning!! How are you today? 
I have a really fun project to show you today using Aurora Wings- Lady of the Forest.
Digital Stamp - Lady of the Forest - Elf Queen in Beautiful Dress - coloring - Fantasy Line Art for Cards & Crafts by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff
Isn't she just gorgeous?! I am not gonna lie to you this image is tricky and takes so long to color but the end result is simply stunning!!!

And then when you turn it into a finished piece of art: LOOK OUT!!!
 The end result is simply stunning! In my humble opinion... LOL

Here's a close up of the embellies: 

And the quote:
"...with fairy grace,
We will sing and bless this place."
-Titania, A Midsummer Night's Dream
- William Shakespeare
I chose Shakespeare for a few reasons: #1 Shakespeare is all class to me. I always think of elegance and sophistication when I think of Shakespeare. #2 This image had me thinking of A Midsummer Night's Dream the whole time I colored it. This Lady of the Forest reminds me of Titania the Queen of the Fairies in the play. #3 This specific quote was chosen because it spoke to me of what I think fairies are; peaceful, gentle and good spirited. This frame is a gift for a coworker for her birthday and I love the idea that this Lady of the Forest will bless her home.

  1. WOW, Sara! This is exquisite! Your coloring is beyond fabulous and I love that she's set in the midsummer night's sky. Beautiful framing and lovely details. What a lucky coworker! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about why you chose this image, too. Classy, indeed! xxD

  2. I still can't believe you tackcled this complex image at 5 x 7 size!! She turned out beautifully, and I love the embellishment you've given to this frame to continue with the Midsummer Night's Dream theme. (I did have Titania in mind when I worked on the original illustration of this image. So cool you picked up on that!) Thank you so much for this elegant inspiration for our latest challenge at Aurora Wings. Mitzi xxx
