Freebie Challenge / Beach At The East Wind.

Kyra has done it again! An amazing freebie image! Aurora is ready for the beach and she is just beautiful! Today is the 1st and we are beginning our Challenge #12 Freebie Challenge with a theme of Beach at The East Wind. Aurora Bubble Gum and Mint Chocolate... isn't she great! I love her!  Here was my take on this challenge:







I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I did a small amount of decoupage; her hat rim and her ice cream cone. The papers I used are from Club Scrap... I LOVE their papers. I really need to start that again! I miss getting my pizza box! I added the corners (Spellbinders) which I cut with black cardstock. The butterflies (Spellbinders) I cut the background with the black cardstock and then I used the other papers for the top. I also added pearls to the middle of each of those butterflies. I added two different ribbons, two of the same, that I tied around the middle strip. I added gems to the bottom half of the scalloped edged papers. I also added inking on the edges of the image and stitching around the image. On the inside I stitched around three sides of the cardstock and added some silver puff paints on the scalloped edge. I also added the small black butterflies with the pearls on them as well.   I stamped Birthday Greetings. And I believe that is it. She is just wonderful! I love her!
