Aurora Wings Challenge #26

Aurora Wings Challenge #26 

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at the

The theme for our challenge is 

Make A Wish

I thought that I would join our lovely Stella Design Team ladies 
for the challenge and here's my design sample. 

To make this Twisted Easel card I have used the following

Silver Mirri and Kanban Silver Embossed Mirri, 
Blue Bazzill, A Selection of Imagination Crafts Starlights 
Metallic Paints, Ranger Glossy Accents (bubbles), Tonic 
NUVO Red Glitter Drops, Ranger Platinum Liquid Pearls, 
Derwent Inktense Blocks, Tattered Lace Stitched Oval Die,
 Corner Flourish Die and Ivory Pearls.

I made the background using some blue paper, I then spritzed the paper and 
sprinkled some gratings (I used a nutmeg grater for this lol) from the 
Inktense blocks in a selection of colours, Next I stippled the Imagination Crafts 
Starlights Metallic Paints in Cyclamen, Diamond, Blue and Rich Gold, I absolutely 
love these paints, they're packed full of pigment and are so twinkly and shiny.
I then added lots of droplets of Ranger Glossy Accents (I thought that they 
would look a lot like bubbles) 

This gorgeous image from Aurora Wings and is called 

I coloured this beauty using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers and 
I then added some Tonic NUVO White Blizzard Crystal Drops to her tail,
some Tonic NUVO Red Glitter Drops to her shoe and also some 
Ranger Liquid Platinum Pearl Drops too.

Be sure to go check out what our lovely Aurora Wings Stella Team
