Aurora Wings Tic Tac Toe Challenge

The new challenge at Aurora Wings is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.

I love these kinds of challenges.
Just choose your three in a row and go for it!
This one is even easier in that you can choose the colors or the elements,
or  if you're feeling extra sporty, go with both!

I chose to go with the gray, white, and pink diagonal row.
I colored up this gorgeous Poppy Elf with Copic markers.

In keeping with the chosen bingo palette, I went ahead and gave her
gray hair so I could give her a pink complexion, and of course pink poppies. 
I used Mitzi's colored version as reference, and pretty much copied it with
all the highlights and dots. I used a silver and a white Posca paint pen for my 
highlights. I love how her eyes turned out. I began with really light gray eyes, but 
added a hint of RV00 for some actual color.

I used a new Gina Marie die for the gray frame, mounted it on some
foam pieces for dimension, and then backed the image with a white linen textured
card stock. I heat embossed a SU flower stamp onto the black card for more
interest and viola! Fini!

I hope you'll join us on the Aurora Wings challenge blog for more inspiration,
and even drop by the Aurora Wings facebook page for lots of coupon codes,
fun contests and giveaways, and even more inspiration from the 
large community we have there.  


  1. Gorgeous coloring, Glo! Love her pink complexion and this is one case where gray hair doesn't age the girl. Sooo sweet! Love your frame and the embossing behind. Beautiful work! xxD

  2. I LOVE your take on the grey-white-pink here. You totally gave it the Glo touch by tweaking the pink into the hot, electric hue. Black and greys in the background and mats give eit a nice balance by grounding these bright poppies. I, too, love the way her eyes turned out. Beautifully otherworldly! Thank you so much for this stunning inspiration for our latest challenge at Aurora Wings. Have a great summer, and hope you enjoy the time off while Aurora Team goes on a break in August! Mitzi xxx
