Pansy Goddess_Aurora Wings

This sweet little goddess is the artwork of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff. She's available in both Mitzi's Gardens and Goddesses Coloring book, and available as a digi.  I chose her as my prize graphic for my third place winner Wisteria Fairy in the FB album at Aurora Wings.  The symbolism of a pansy is "loving thoughts" and this card will go with loving thoughts to a friend.

Pansies have long been flowers of remembrance. Indeed, they have often been placed upon memorial markers and stones to honor and remember those who are no longer on the physical plane. They are also a symbol of togetherness and union, and perhaps this is why they are so appropriate for remembering those who have passed from our lives. Their beauty is the perfect testimony to the love we have shared with others in the past. Keep pansies around you when you wish to remember the fond memories and kindnesses of loved ones who have passed from this earth.

The details and credits for this card are:   She is a 4x5 card mounted on oyster deckle edged cardstock, colored entirely in Prismacolor Pencils.  The matting layer is Blackberry Bliss paper (SU) that is embossed with Tim Holtz Cirque (657847) embossing folder which has been then brushed with versa mark to bring up the embossing.  The corner group is a "reprint" of the graphic, sized down a little bit, and then fussy cut pansies and butterfly.  They are mounted over 2 diecuts of the small Les Papilloons by Spellbiers.(S4390). Pearls and 3D crystal glaze cover all the bubbles in the graphic and in the corner grouping.  Accents with Sakura Glaze pens and Wink of Stella, and a bit of Blackberry Bliss ribbon finish the project.  My favorite pansy is called the Black Prince.    But working a flower in a ton of black just would'n't work well for this delicate graphic., so I worked it in deep purples.  The orange pansies are variants of some of the pansies I have grown.

Another coloring of the Pansy Goddess.,  She's just gorgeous no matter the tones you choose!

  2. Pansies were also known as "heartsease" back in the day. And they are perfect for remberance. This piece is lovely. Like Tracy...I always seem to say the same thing, but I have run out of adjectives!
