Aurora Wings Challenge #66


It's time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings and this time it's....

Image may contain: 1 person, text

This was a fun challenge because it allowed the option to use a selection of colours to be used with the black & white rather than just one.

This week I was inspired to share a little bit of our Aussie Autumn with you and the perfect image to use for this was the Acorn Sprite. I love how the colour of the leaves pops out - reminds me of seeing a tree in full autumnal colour and how it makes the rest of the background pale. The 2 piece maple leaf die was a great way to embellish, colouring the veins in the same tones I used on the acorn leaf.

New Hipsters from Simply Betty Stamps


There are 3 new Hipsters over at Simply Betty Stamps and this cutie is Bernadette Bee. I thought it would be a cute idea to have her watering the very flowers that will provide the pollen for her honey collection. By die cutting the daisy border once in green and once in white I was able to cut the white flowers apart and give the whole border a 3D feel as well as tying it into the image with the daisy Bernadette is carrying.

Popcorn Time!


It's time for some circus fun from Simply Betty Stamps and this is my first in a series of 3 projects using Ringmaster Fiona. This is the stand alone figure and I thought she would be perfect on a popcorn box. I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store to create the box and wanted to use fun and funky colours, perfect for a circus. The best part of this was cooking the popcorn, something I haven't done in ages and it certainly bought back fond memories and oh that yummy smell!!!!

CAS with Simply Betty Stamps' Emos
