Aurora Wings 'Sisterhood'

Hello again
This is my second Blog today.
and here I would like to show you 
my Card that I have made from Aurora Wings,
by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.
I just so love all her Fantasy Art.

She is starting a new Blog, starting 17th March.
I can't wait to see all the stunning Creations.

Anyway here is my card:-

I have used the free digi stamp 
Mitzi has kindly gifted to followers 
of her blog
called 'Sisterhood' 

I've used an A4 Dark Brown Card
as my base card,
which is folded in half.

I then used a Mottled Medium Brown Card
which I cut to fit the face of the base card 
but trimmed 2cm off one edge.

At the bottom of the Mottled Card,

I Heat Embossed a Flourish
(Hot Off The Press - Paperpizazz)
using Copper Embossing Powder
And I then wrapped a strip of 2.5cm Antique Cream Lace
(Boyes Haberdashery)
around the left side of the mottled card.

For My Image,

I first tore it into a rectangle (around the image),
then using a cold Teabag 
(after making my man a nice cup of Tea),
I stained all around the image of the girl.
( I have never tried this before, 
so I'm so glad it turned out ok)
Once it had dried I then coloured the image in
using my Promarker Pens.

To finish my card off I added some 

Very Small Flat-back Clear Crystals
and Medium Flat-backed Brown Gems
which I alternatively placed along her headpiece,
along with a Flat-Backed Clear Crystal Teardrop
(last one in my stash)
for the centre piece.
And a Medium Flat-back Pale Brown Crystal 
for her earring.
And finally but not least I added Cream Paper Roses
(Craft Shop - SIL),
which I have edged the petals in 
3D Iridescent Glitter Glue
(Glitz It)
Just to give them a bit of sparkle.
