This image is the image that got me hooked on Aurora Wings images. All of Mitzi’s images are fabulous, but this one just knocked me out, because it has the gorgeous pansies arranged around the beautiful woman. Even given the fact that I loooove this image, I have owned it for quite some time now, and have been too scared to do anything with it, in case I “wrecked” it. My brain didn’t take it a step further and get to the step of how I could print it again, and retry…..so there it sat! Well, I finally got up the nerve, grabbed my Prismacolor pencils, and went to it. I was seriously holding my breath for about 80% of the time that I was coloring!! I couldn’t decide on which pansy color combo to use, so I tried to do as many different ones as possible I highlighted the bubbles and her eyes with some white gel pen. After curling the corners a bit, I set to assembling the back drop of the card. I embossed some Coordinations Kraft core paper with a Cuttlebug script embossing folder, and embossed a strip of vellum with a spellbinders folder. I had a strip of the taupe lace, which I wove some gold cording through. I used a Tonic Studio loopy fern leaf die, a Tattered Lace butterfly die, and some sprigs of blue flower things. It needed a little something else, so I got out some frosted white adhesive gems, and colored them with my SN markers to look a bit more like the bubbles in the picture….then added a dot of white gel pen, because I’m just picky like that lol. I’m thrilled with this card, and really think that I did this fabulous image justice. And I think it’s one that I’ll just keep!!
