Susan's Challenge #12 Showcase

Good morning everyone :) Kyra has done it again! An amazing freebie image! Aurora is ready for the beach and she is just beautiful! We are on Challenge #12 Freebie Challenge with a theme of Beach at The East Wind. Aurora Bubble Gum and Mint Chocolate... isn't she great! I love her!  Here was my take on this challenge:

I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I did a small amount of decoupage; her hat rim and her ice cream cone. The papers I used are from Club Scrap... I LOVE their papers. I really need to start that again! I miss getting my pizza box! I added the corners (Spellbinders) which I cut with black cardstock. The butterflies (Spellbinders) I cut the background with the black cardstock and then I used the other papers for the top. I also added pearls to the middle of each of those butterflies. I added two different ribbons, two of the same, that I tied around the middle strip. I added gems to the bottom half of the scalloped edged papers. I also added inking on the edges of the image and stitching around the image. On the inside I stitched around three sides of the cardstock and added some silver puff paints on the scalloped edge. I also added the small black butterflies with the pearls on them as well.   I stamped Birthday Greetings. And I believe that is it. She is just wonderful! I love her! Thank you Kyra for another fantastic freebie!!!


  1. I love your card! I just my Prisma pencils last night, gotta start learning, I'm a Copic user normally so we will see how it goes. I'm gonna try this image. What is decoupage btw ?

    1. Liz, decoupage is adding dimension by printing the image several times so you can fussy cut a portion to pop up, in this case, Aurora's hat brim and her ice cream cone. xxD

  2. Gorgeous colors and fab design, Susan. Love it!
