I'm thrilled to be joining the AuroraWings Showcase Team today to introduce the two newest members of the adorable Sprite family. First off meet Venus Flytrap Sprite. She's also available in png form HERE. Pretty simple, but I wanted this little gal to grab your attention (not to mention that fly who is certainly a goner). LOL All dies are Spellbinders and the gorgeous ribbon is from the DL.Art Supplies Mermaids Tale Third Edition. Yum!
Here's a closeup of this cutie! Hard to imagine she's such a carnivore, eh? She's colored with Copics and I tried to mimic her trap (hand, mouth, stomach?) with the die cut sentiment. GOTCHA!
And this little tough guy is Praying Mantis Sprite. I've used the PNG version to add him to a tag created using digital downloads from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. He's also available in jpg form HERE, but with the png format, you can place him directly on digital paper, or elements in your printing program, then print and color him with whatever medium you choose. I've added a corrugated cardboard backing to the tag to lend stability, since all of the layers are just printed, and more of that luscious ribbon from DL.Art Supplies.
Here's a closeup. My thought was that this little guy would be sweet to use for a little boy's gift for his Mum for Mother's Day, so I put him in a rose garden and added one he picked to give her. However, he still sort of disappeared into the garden foliage (just like in real life) so I printed his twice more to add some layers to his wings, eyes and mouth. All colored with Copics with a little bit of sparkle on his wings from Stardust Stickles.
I hope you visit the Showcase Blog to see all of the wonderful interpretations of these two new cuties, plus a fabulous Coupon code you won't want to miss!
And don't forget, you have only until 11:55 pm EST this Saturday night to join our current Sprite Delight III challenge HERE. Hope to see you there.
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
I'm entering my Praying Mantis Sprite tag in the DL.Art March Linky Challenge, Cute Card Thursday Mother's Day, Through the Purple Haze Make a Scene, Craft Your Passion ATG, Digitally Sweet Spring is in the Air and the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge using the Blue, Green and Pink with the twist of leaves.
