As far as eating mushrooms go, I am not a fan.
Maybe it's the texture, maybe it's the flavor.
Either way, I can do without them.
It's a Mushroom Flower Sprite from Aurora Wings!!
Mitzi has done it again and created an adorable new sprite image.
The very second I saw her, I knew she was destined to adorn my
Mother's Day cards this year.
But then I thought, what about foregoing the standard card
and creating a little gift instead?
My family has enough of my handmade cards to last them forever,
but maybe a small mixed media canvas would be a nice change of pace.
I began with a 4"x 5" small canvas, painted it using DecoArt chalk paint in
the Timeless shade, and then used the Tim Holtz Gothic stencil to add some
Finnabair Texture Paste in Platinum Crackle.
I colored this Mushroom Flower Sprite with my Grandma in mind,
using RV Copics. I added some Stickles for sparkle and interest.
I used a Spellbinders oval and Elegant oval to ground my image.
Also decked out in some Stickles magic. Sprites need their sparkle.
Grandma loves flowers, so I broke out my stash of paper
flowers, and even popped a tiny mushroom in for fun.
I added a lovely pearl stick pin and some pearl and gold
dew drops for a bit of fancy decadence. Nothing is too good
for this special lady. I just know she's going to love it.
I didn't want to start a fight over special gifts, so I made another
canvas for my Mother in Law. This one is a little different in that
I used a 4" x 4" canvas, but stayed with the same basic background and
textures as the first one.
I used BG and YG Copics for this color scheme.
I like to mix things up a bit with non-traditional colors.
And so far I have yet to color one of these Aurora Wings Sprites
using flesh tones on the skin. Just one of my quirks when
it comes to little magical creatures.
I used a different embellishment for height,
but still popped a sweet little mushy in there to keep everyone happy.
