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

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
