The Aurora Wings new challenge is Easter Pastels to get you in the mood for Easter that is right around the corner. A lot of people I know are getting their Easter projects finished or even started right now. I decided I wanted to do something on my own this month. Instead of making a card this month I went a bit of a different direction, and it was a lot of fun.
The Crocus Sprite from Aurora Wings is adorable. She is so sweet and very easy for anyone to color. She made a very nice addition to the Easter/Spring wreath I made for this bit of inspiration for you.
The Copic Markers I used were:
- Skin: E000, E00, E02, R20
- The Flowers : V20, V22, V27, V28, G68, G63, G61, Y13, Y15
- Hair : Y11, YR21, YR23
The colors of the Crocus Sprite are from flowers that I looked up online. I like to look up the flowers online to see what colors they actually are to see if that inspires me. This is the image that inspired me
I know they come in all shades of purple but I needed and wanted to keep it with the Easter Pastel theme. These are very pretty Crocus flowers either way. I did my sprite with the Crocus flower colors in mind, but then I did her hair the golden yellow/orange to match the center of the flowers, as if she was the center of the flowers as well. Her dress does look as if she is a Crocus as well, doesn’t it?
I got the vine wreath from Hobby Lobby. I was actually going to place the little sprite on a card, but I placed her on the paper when I printed her out to close to the edge and could not die cut her out on anything so I cut her out and was going to put her on something. Then I was at Hobby Lobby with my family and when my daughter and I went to the restroom they had these wreaths placed right next to the door. They caught my attention and that is when Meadow and I came up with the idea.
The flowers of course are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I just used a hot glue gun to put everything on the wreath. It was very easy to make. I will be putting a little bit of ribbon at the top so that I can hang it on my office door. I really like how it all came together and It is a nice change to my desert outside.
