The Smell of Death

Hello 🙂 We’re about 2/3 of the way through the October ATG (old or new, full projects, or just coloring) challenge at the Aurora Wings Facebook group. We love to see your Aurora Wings creations and coloring, so please pop by and share!! For my inspiration this month, I wanted to do something a bit creepy/spooky, so chose one of Mitzi’s images that isn’t used a whole lot. Corpse Flower Sprite fit the bill perfectly!! I colored it up with my Copics, then fussy cut it out.

I die cut a tag, then blended Distress Inks that coordinated with the image. A few spritzed of water provided a bit more oomph. I looked through my *extensive* stash for some flies….but it was a no go 🙁 So….I drew some to hover around the image 🙂 I embossed the wings, to give them a more realistic look. For the “fumes” that this flower emits, I first embossed some squiggles with glow in the dark embossing powder, then added some definition with a black fine liner.

Glow in the dark smellies!!

Initially, I hand lettered the sentiment. I really shouldn’t do that!! It was awful! So I carefully removed the Sprite, and redid the tag! I printed the sentiment on some clear adhesive paper, and attached it to the (new) tag. Much, MUCH better!!! Some purple and black crinkle ribbon from DL Art completed this project 🙂
