More Aurora Wings Springtime Beauties

Two days in a row?! Right? 
Don't get used to it, but I'll keep trying to create
and share here as often as time allows.

I have another Aurora Wings Mother's Day card to spotlight today.

I chose to use one of my favorite mermaid images,

I colored this beauty using Toner Grays and Blue Green Copic markers.
Pretty much my go to coloring medium. And BGs being some of my favorite
hues in the Copic collection.  

 I used some coordinating background paper and cheesecloth
for an ocean feel. Even tossed in some sequins for sparkle,
along with Stickles for more bling factor.
My MIL loved it.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

I'm not entering these cards in any challenges, but wanted to share them.

I chose this image for Grandma's card. 
This adorable family is called, Mushrooms.
Colored with Cool Grays and Violet Copic markers.

Kept this one in Grandma's favorite color, purple.
I really like how the foiled card plays nicely with the grays.
And as usual, this is Stickled for sparkle.

Meditating Mushroom is colored in Warm Grays and Yellow Red Copics.
I cropped the image for quicker coloring and better fit on the smaller
4.5 X 5.5 card. I added some Stickles to his 'bumps', 
and then covered them with clear Nuvo drops for an interesting texture.
 Used some lace and sequins to finish this one off.

Last, is little Poppy Sprite. Also cropped.
So sweet and fun to color using Cool Gray and Red Violet Copic markers.
Grosgrain ribbon, metal embellished ribbon, and black half pearls
compliment this foiled background paper and cute image perfectly.

Thanks for dropping by today.
I'll be back tomorrow with another project for your amusement.    


  1. I'm getting spoiled already, Glo! Hehe. Another gorgeous entry in Ch. 66 from you. I love how the Princess of the Sea has the look of mischief - great shading near her lips for that! The teal looks so pretty with the greyscale coloring. Your background and cheesecloth really create a lovely ocean look. All other cards are so beautiful, too!
