Hello everyone!! Welcome to another Aurora Wings Challenge!! I feel like its been toooooo long since I got to work with my Aurora Wings images!! So let's start Team Stella's year off with a bang!! And the gorgeous "The Green Fairy"!!!
Isn't she just gorgeous!! I printed her quite little... only about 5" tall by 3.5" wide. She took a long time to color that small but I think the finished project is so worth it!! I used both my Skin and Hair and Elements of Nature classes from Kit and Clowder to help create all those fine details!
I grabbed this frame from Michaels specially because of the raised edges. I wanted there to be some interest away from the picture as well. Once I had her all colored up I took the glass out of the frame and used foam tape to pop all the matted layers up for a super 3D effect.
I altered the cardstocks to give them some glitter and shine and detail as well. The gold sheet I embossed with a home made Perfect Gold embossing powder using a damask stencil. The purple sheet I used a starbust stencil from Tim Holtz and a home made embossing powder made with teapot purple Magicals.
Then I made the larger flowers using the Dreaming Tree- Antique Tray flowers; misted a CTMH Gypsy paper that has an embossed design to create a resist effect; topped it off with the Tim Holtz distress ink for the edges. I misted some Prima flowers with a couple home made mists. I also used some Prima leaves misted with a Heidi Swapp chartreuse to get the right green and gold. And to top it off I colored some Tim Holtz enamel roses with Nuvo Crystal Drops lavendar to make them purple not white.
Ta-Da!! One very beautiful display of Aurora Wings "The Green Fairy"!!
