Shine brighter...

Mornin' crafty friends!

Last week I was introduced to a new-to-me digi shop through the Markers! Papers! Digis! Facebook group. The East Wind is a little shop full of lovely ladies to color up and this beauty is actually the August newsletter freebie called Aurora Marilyn. I totally love her big, beautiful eyes and up swept hair do. The East Wind also runs a challenge and the current theme is "out of this world". As soon as I saw that, I could just picture Aurora Marilyn as an interstellar princess traveling across the galaxy. So before coloring her up in all her silvery glory I masked Aurora off and used a bunch of Distress Inks and a white Mr Huey mist to create the starry sky behind her. Then I inked up this cool banner sentiment to tie the whole card together, the blue looks a bit jarring in my photo for some reason but it is a much better match to the background in person.

Okey dokey, thanks for stopping by. I'll catch ya on the flip side! :)
