Aurora Wings Easter Elf_Challenge 46

Challenge 46 is a bisected sketch challenge with vertical and circular elements.  I chose to use the new adorable Spring Sprite for this 5x7 card.  I used a textured embossing folder "weathered" (by Taylored Expressions)  and a gold butterfly woven ribbon to suggest the two vertical lines. Scalloped circles diecut the artpiece and sentiment (Lifestyle Crafts scalloped circles) placed over a delicate circular doily. This Spring Sprite is too late for the Sprite challenge--and I'm sorry to miss that one since I love all the Sprite collection and use them often.   The Easter greeting (stamp from Lawn Fawn) is overlaid with a (pencilled) vellum horizontal line (to comply with the sketch challenge).  The tiny accenting butterflies are from SU Beautiful Wings embosslits, pencilled and accented.  The artpiece is accented with 3D crystal Glaze, gold and white glaze pens and white Posca pen. As always my work is done with Prismacolor Pencils.

SU paper and inking colors are Bermuda Bay and So Saffron


  1. Very sweet Priss. Love your coloring and creative take on the sketch. Thanks so much for joining our Sketch Challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD

  2. This is so adorable, Priss! Lovely coloring and such a pretty color palette on this new Sprite. White doily looks gorgeous against the embossed teal paper. Love how you matched the little paper butterflies and those in the image in the same color to create the illusion of depth, too. Thank you for playing at Aurora Wings Challenge! Mitzi xx
