Aurora Wings Showcase Blog

Hi everyone, I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to the 
week ahead. We've had some fabulous Autumn weather here on the north east coast 
of England this past week or so, lovely crisp mornings with the sun shining....I just 
love this time of the year so much. Speaking of Autumn, my post today is something 
that I made for the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog after having seen Mitzi,s stunning 
new image which is called "Harvest Elf" and I just knew that I had to join in with the lovely 
Showcase Blog DT ladies and have a little fun colouring up this little beauty.

and HERE she is....

After colouring up the beautiful "Harvest Elf" image I framed her with Rust coloured Bazzill 
and added whimsy die cut corners, sentiment and sentiment frame die cut, I also added a few 
ivory pearls

To colour up the image I've used pro/flexmarkers in the following colours ~ 

skin ~ coral, dusky pink, blush & almond 
hair & eyes ~ satin, tan, tawny owl & shale
flora & fauna ~ starfish, apricot, honeycomb, burnt orange, buttercup, daffodil bloom, 
sleigh bell, gold, ruby, crimson, wild cranberry, cardinal red, burnt sienna, raw umber, 
shale, sandstone, lime twist, pear green, marsh green, plum & sugar plum 
I also added some sakura glaze to the rosehips and berries and some sakura 
gold metallic to add a foiled effect 

I hope that you like her and don't forget to check out what the lovely, talented 
showcase DT ladies have created over on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.
