Under the Sea at Aurora Wings

Our new challenge starts to day at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog with the theme of

Easy peasy, or maybe not so much, considering all of the gorgeous digis from Aurora Wings.  In the AW digi shop the gorgeous stamps are conveniently catagorized so you can see all the fabulous mermaids in one spot HERE.  I've chosen the beautiful Jellyfish Dance and made an Altered Double Display Card from a tutorial on Beccy's Place Blog.  The gorgeous digi papers on the front and inside sides are Watercolor Batik from We Are 3 in The Stamping Studio. I've also used DP from Carta Bella and Graphic 45 for the die cuts.

Here's a closeup of Jellyfish Dance, currently only available only on She's colored with Copics with accents from Perfect Pearls in both White Opal and Platinum Pearl.  The jellyfish sparkle with Stardust Stickles and I've done the background technique using a Q-tip and 91% Isopropyl Alcohol after coloring with my Copics.

On the left, the seaweed die is from Gina Marie with waves from the Big Splash Border from Memory Box.

On the right, a fan coral die from Gina Marie and another wave border.  Both sea life corners on the second tier are also from Memory Box.  Although a bit delicate, this card still does fold flat for mailing.

Be sure to check out the lovely inspiration from my Aurora Teamies for our new Under the Sea challenge and we hope to see you join in.  And there's also still plenty of time to enter our June FB contest, Something Blue, that ends June 30th.

Here's how to keep up with what's happening at Aurora Wings.
