Hi there 🙂 I hope everyone is doing well, and managing to find time to do the things you love 🙂 Today I’m sharing an inspiration project for the challenge at the Stamps by Aurora Wings Facebook group. We love to see anything that you make, or have made in the past….which is why we are ATG, old or new, full projects or colorings alone 🙂 It’s been eons since I’ve done an ATC, and I would love to say that I’d planned on making this into one right from the beginning, but, I’d be lying, lol. I printed this Wisteria Fairy image up and was surprised at how small it came out….oops. The version I used is the full version (goodbye eyesight!), found in the Gardens and Goddesses vol. 1 coloring book….I’m not seeing the book listed (however, I’m sure that Mitzi would be glad to get it up for you, if you reqested it!). Although the book isn’t listed, you can find the simple version of this lovely fairy HERE at the Aurora Wings Digi Shop, or HERE at the Etsy store. I colored the image with my Copics, adding a bit of Wink of Stella to her wings for some sparkle.
I didn’t know what I was going to do with the image, until I measured it, and found that it was just over 2.5″ x 3.5″!!! I trimmed about 1/8″ off and was set to go!! Because the image is so detailed, I wanted to limit what I embellished this with. I used a small dotted background stamp around the edges, inked the edges with the same black ink, and used some teeny stickers to add the sentiment. I wasn’t completely satisfied, so made a few tiny notches on the top on bottom, and strung a few beads on some black thread. Had to glue the beads down afterwards, to hold them in place, because I forgot to tie knots!! Lol. I forgot how much I loved creating these mini pieces of art…..I used to make them often, when I was swapping online….and have an extensive collection (6,000+) of cards from artists from around the world that I received in trade.
