Marie

Hi there!! I figured it was time for another Aurora Wings project, so I spun the {figurative} wheel and came up with this image.  Marie Nyantoinette can be found HERE at aurorawings.com , HERE as a single digi on Etsy, and in THIS coloring book 🙂  I colored her up with my Copics, trying to keep a Victorian feel with the color scheme.

  After fussy cutting her out, I glued her to a die cut piece that I’d distressed with some gold stuff I found in my craft room…..I have NO idea what it is…the label was worn off….thus…it’s “stuff”.  I found a piece of Graphic 45 paper from the Renaissance Faire collection that was perfect for this project, and distressed and inked the edges.  Since the era was known for it’s ornate-ness, I had a bit of fun with embellishments.  I tried a few different laces before settling on the ivory one I used to wrap 2 of the corners.  I dove into my flower stash and found some blooms that complimented the colors, as well as the flowers in the image.  I added some die cut leaves and feathers to finish the arrangement.  Some gold pearls provided the finishing touch for my card 🙂

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
