Aurora Wings New Release Showcase

Today Aurora Wings are launching some new Sprites into the family and I have to admit that I had a heap of fun with these. You can check out all the DT projects and image links for this release on the Aurora Wings Showcase blog HERE.

First up we have the Venus Fly Trap Sprite. The little fly was too cute not to include so I cut him out separately and added a thin strip of acetate to make him hover moments away from his demise! I also cut out an extra shape in plain white of both the sprite image and the fly so they could be backed neatly as this is a 3D project.

The pot was made using a file from the Silhouette store and was cut on my Cameo. I then padded out the inside before attaching the sprite. To finish off I mixed some decor rocks with glue and adding a layer across the top to give it a proper potted plant feel. A ribbon and tag completed the project.

And for the second image - the Praying Mantis Sprite - I created a little garden in a shadow box frame so it could try to hide amongst the leaves. The frame was designed and cut using my Cameo and then I added some garden designer paper behind the cut out leaves to add more depth.

I want to hand out an Awesome Award for these, Debbie! The little pot of Venus Flytrap is genius! Simply brilliant! I did not realize that you made the pot yourwelf. When I first saw the pic, I thought you used a store-bought flower pot. All the more amazing!! Love the Praying Mantis shadow box, too. Your coloring of him is outstanding (Especially love the iridescent wings!) and the whole scene is so lush. Thank you so much for the magical samples for today's new releases, Debbie!
