I'm so excited to be joining the Showcase Team again today to introduce THREE! new Sprites on the AW Showcase Blog. Who could resist Easter Bunny Sprite, busy at work painting his eggs? I've made a (sort of) egg shaped easel using Spellbinders Grand ovals and (ancient) pastel papers from Heidi Grace.
Here's a closeup of Easter Bunny Sprite. My first thought was to flock him, but Mitzi added fabulous furry, fluffy detail I didn't want to lose, so I colored him with Copics instead. Gotta say, I LOVE coloring fur! You can find Easter Bunny Sprite below on both AW.com and AW on Etsy.
I'm adding this to Fab 'n' Funky Anything but Square, Addicted to Stamps and More #283 Holiday, the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Tic Tac Toe using Die Cuts/ FREE/ Any shade of Green, Simon Says Monday Easter/Spring, Simon Says Wednesday Easter Inspired, Crafty Sentiments Designs Easter, Do Al(l) Kreatives #15 Spring/Easter, Classic Design Team Open March AG, MAWTT Easter
OOOhhh! And isn't this a magical new Sprite? This beloved fantasy creature conjures up rainbows, sparkle and shine and that's just what I gave Unicorn Sprite. I've used a variety of dies from Gina Marie, Mama Elephant, and Echo Park to create this scene and a fair amount of glitter paper, as well.
Here's a closeup of Unicorn Sprite. I flipped and colored her in soft pastel Copics with a rainbow mane and tail. I hope you can see the Stardust Stickles I've added to make her all sparkly. I mean don't ALL unicorns sparkle and shine? You can find Unicorn Sprite below.
I also used Copics to color the die cut rainbow that tucked neatly behind her and into the embossed cloud border. It shines too, due to an unmentionable mistake with my Xyron. See? Guess in the long run it was serendipity. LOL
I'm adding this to Crafty Creations #362 AG, the Outlawz Saturday Paper ala Mode Fantasy, the Outlawz Festive Fridays Use a Die Cut, Word Art Wednesday #326/327 AG, Jo's Scrap Shack #224 AG,
And finally, the new Anemone Sprite which just may be one of my faves EVER! I took the liberty of flipping and cropping her to be able to bring a bit more detail to her gorgeous floral crown. She's colored with Copics with some Black Nuvo Drops in the flower centers. The hardest part of this one was deciding on which colors to use. Anemones come in such a vast array that I know I'll be coloring her again and again. She's so perfect for just about any occasion, don'tcha think?
Here's what Anemone Sprite looks like in her entirety. One of my favorite things about Mitzi's images is the resolution is unsurpassed among digi artists, allowing great freedom in sizing. Mitzi is also open to creative cropping, flipping, merging and coloring, which is loads of fun for any colorist. You can find Anemone Sprite below.
