Ballroom Dancer

     This is my third sprite in the past 2 weeks and I'm not done yet!  lol  I do love these sprites from AuroraWings and they are such a delight to color.  AuroraWings is celebrating its 4th Anniversary and is requiring (for this challenge) that only sprites be used.   Today's Carnation Sprite turned into a Ballroom Dancer.  :-D


     I colored with ProMarkers and gel inks, then cut the image with a die from Spellbinders.  This card shows off one of my favorite techniques which is making CAS cards that look much more complex than they are.  I used one of my fancy frame dies to cut the image and then layered it onto the card front. 

     When doing this technique, I always keep embellishment to a minimum; in this case using only a dyed, lace, bow-tie bow.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, then added it to the bottom of the image.  With that, I was done!

     We're on the downhill slide to the weekend and I have to get a bunch of prep work finished for a garage sale on Saturday.  Originally, I would have said "yard" sale but since the weather forecasters are saying it might rain, we're moving it under cover.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

What a beautiful way to color the Carnation Sprite. The die you chose just perfectly mimics the edges and detail of a carnation. Love this Sprite, and thank you for joining in the Sprite Delight V Challenge and Aurora Wings 4th Anniversary Celebration. ~Priss Steelman~ Guest Designer, March 2018
