SCACD Blog Hop: She's back! Better then ever!

Welcome to another fun filled, exciting SCACD blog hop!  And wow, this release is simply adorable.  So....what release are we talking about?  Who is back?  Better then ever?  Aurora by Victoria Case!  If you have landed on my blog first, make sure to start at the "Follow your Heart" blog for the entire list.  After you finish here, make sure to go to the very talented Alex's blog for more Aurora!

I was asked to use the "A ladybug is love" stamp and this is what I came up with:

From 2010-07-26

Isn't she an adorable stamp?  I love the entire collection, but really fell in love with this image.  Here is a close up of Aurora:

And the ladybugs:

I used Copics to lightly color Aurora, and then decided to use the Bronze Pearl Pen to "make" her hair!  To do that I followed the lines of the hair part of the stamp, filling in each section slowly with the Pearl Pen.  I then used lots and lots of the Hologram Glitter Liner on Aurora and the lady bugs.  For the flowers I used the Sukura Glaze Pen, and actually used my Copics to color the distressed edge of my image layer.

Coloring the distressed edge was actually pretty easy, all you need to do is take your Copic and using the brush end run the pen around the side of your paper, some of the color will seep into the paper causing "blotches."  To get rid of the blotches use your colorless blender to remove the hard edges.

Hope you like the card and the blog hop!  Have a wonderful day and don't forget to grab your Aurora stamps at Susana's store!
