Hi there 🙂 Today, I have an inspiration project for Aurora Wings Facebook challenge. Our monthly challenges are ATG with and Aurora Wings image….and it can be a project or coloring…old or new!! We love to see them all <3 I chose Elven Queen for my project. She can be found exclusively HERE in the Digi Store. I learned a few things while making this project…..first thing…alcohol markers don’t do too well on vellum…..it made a smeary mess…the garbage got some vellum lunch! Second thing I learned was that (and I KNEW this!!!!!) you have to be very very careful when applying a water based clear coat on top of digis printed on an ink jet…..a whole different kind of smeary mess…..lol….garbage got a dinner out of the deal too!!! Well, as is often the case with me, the third time was the charm 🙂 I colored this with my Copics….sticking to red tones for a monochromatic look. When I was done, I fussy cut her out, and added chunky silver and red glitter and some tiny gemstones to her jewellery.
I then took a storage jar, that instant coffee came in years ago, and painted the inside of it with silver paint. When the paint was dry, I set to work decorating it. I glued the image down, then used some sparkly, fuzzy yarn to make an otherworldy cloud for the Elven Queen to rise from.
I decorated the yarn with gemstones and the same glitter mix that I used on her jewellery. To finish off, I added a big red heart gem, a small + sign and the word SOUL in rhinestone letters.
This Heart and Soul jar was done 🙂 ……and I have no idea what I’m putting in it!!! LOL
