Aurora Forget Me Not ~ The East Wind new release

Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday! There is a gorgeous new release coming out at The East Wind shop today. She is called Aurora Forget Me Not...so pretty. Many on the DT couldn't wait to colour her...including me. Check out The East Wind Facebook group and you will see all of our versions throughout the day.

I coloured Aurora with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. She was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black cardstock. She was then popped up on foam tape for dimension.

The 6 x 8 inch mixed media paper background was spritzed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Witches' Potion Purple and Delphinium Turquoise sprays. Once dry, script text was stamped using Deep Purple Archival ink and a starburst pattern was stamped with Forget-Me-Not Archival ink (how appropriate!) Stars were die cut from silver glittery paper in two sizes and applied to the background with foam tape. White crocheted lace was adhered to the bottom edge and Petaloo flowers adhered over the bottom edge of the image.

The sentiment was printed on white cardstock, trimmed out, and matted with black. Foam tape was also used to pop up each word. The word "WISH" on the large star is an Idea-ology rub-on and the scalloped border is another rub-on from my stash. Blue Inktense pencil was applied to the background around each silver star and then activated with a water brush. Black Big Brush pen was used to ink the outside edges before the black matting was added to frame and finish the piece.

Thanks for joining Aurora and me today. We hope your wishes come true!

Life is good; so is art.
