Anything Goes with Aurora Wings

Hello! It's time for a brand-spankin' new challenge with Aurora Wings. The theme this time around is "Anything Goes," so there's no excuse to not play along! I decided to work with the delightful Lilac Sprite.

I wanted to do something different when I colored the Lilac Sprite. So I opted to give her black hair and a black dress. I think she looks striking. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for this. Here's a close up.

I loosely fussy cut her out then created my background. I have a nice big lilac bloom stamp from Stampendous, which I stamped on to lavender colored cardstock using Grape Jelly Memento Ink. I wanted to add a little something to the large blooms, so I took out my Fine Tec watercolors and added some shimmery purple watercolor to a few of the blooms. The shine it gave the background was fabulous, but not quite enough, so I also used a green sparkle marker from Spectrum Noir around the edge and for a few of the stems of the lilacs.

You can see the shine in the photo above. I also added a few sequin from the Lilac Lustre Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. I adhered them with  On Point Glue from Imagine. My sentiment is from Altenew's Crafty Friends stamp set. I attached everything to a black card base, to work back to the black I used on the Sprite.

I really hope that you will join us for the "Anything Goes" challenge. I know that many of you will create something spectacular! Please be sure to visit the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to see more from the amazing Design Team. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I really love the dramatic black on Lilac Sprite, Alison! Really pops the flowers and your stunning stamped background gives a fabulous mid-summer's night dreamlike quality with some sparkle from the moon and stars. I can just smell the heady lilacs. Yummy! xxD
Such an unexpected delight to see the Lilac Sprite in black, Alison! Love the satiny shine you gave to the black parts of the image. And the backdrop perfectly complements the Sprite. Thank you so much for this beautiful inspiration for our latest challenge at Aurora Wings today! Mitzi xxx

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
