Flower Elf

Hi there 🙂 It’s been ages since I’ve had a play with an image from Aurora Wings, so my good friend’s birthday seemed like the perfect time! I remembered to choose some paper before I started coloring, so the color scheme was established. I colored this adorable big eyed elf (couldn’t find her in the Etsy store, though) with my Copics, and added some sparkle to the flower centers….because my friend loves sparkles, lol. I then matted the image with a cool stitched die.

I cut out the rest of the layers with different size dies from an elongated rectangle set. I was happy to find the floral swag die in my collection – yes, I forgot I owned it!! After cutting it from gold sparkle paper, I cut it again so I could make sure the flowers could match the rest of the card. A sparkly die cut sentiment finishes this off.

  7. Love your flower elf with the kitten. 🙂 I find it interesting that you choose the paper for mounting before you start coloring. I do the reverse. Maybe that explains why I have lots of things colored and none mounted. 🙂 I’m going to have to try choosing paper before I start coloring and see if that works better for me.

    Your color choices are beautiful!
