Aurora Wings Challenge #70: Sketch

Hello! Today I am sharing a card for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is to use the sketch provided by Mitzi (see below). I opted to once again use an adorable Sprite for my project, and this time it is the Cherry Sprite. You can find her HERE on the Aurora Wings site, and HERE on Etsy. Here is the sketch...
And here is my take on the sketch.

I started off by coloring my Sprite, as I always do. The colors I use then help me choose my papers. I decided to use my new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create my circles.  I simply cut the same circle twice, out of two papers, and inlaid the polka dot paper into the green, so it's flat.

The hardest part for me on this card was arranging my sequins, which was a combination of Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, and a few (the glittery gold ones) that I had gotten from Ink Road Stamps. For my sentiment, I used a lovely "smile" from Honey Bee Stamps.

It's been a while since I've done a sketch challenge, and I didn't realize how much I missed doing them. I hope you will play along with this Aurora Wings Challenge. Please be sure to visit the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Absolutely precious, Alison! Such an adorable Sprite you've chosen and I love how the dots on your die cuts echo the dotty DP. The deep green showcases not only your beautiful coloring, but the amazing array of sequins, as well. Love that bold sentiment, too. FAbulous work! xxD

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
