Peach and Teal Shaped Card (Aurora Wings image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a new card to show today and this time I have used a lovely image from Aurora Wings. I coloured her with copics and then used one of my peach copic markers to create a mottled effect behind the image. It was very easy to do, I scribbled lightly with it and then dotted the marker all over it being careful not to outline the image so it didn't look like I had gone around it.

I used some of my gorgeous Spellbinder dies that I don't often use but I really should use more often. 




I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Aurora Wings - Sprite delight II
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart -  Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes or sketch
