"First Sight" 3D paper art - The East Wind New Release!

Howzit Friends!
Today I'm sharing a 3D paper art project featuring The East Wind's new release digi called "Aurora's First Sight"!  Isn't she lovely!  She'll be up in the Etsy store later today.

Here she is ready for framing in a shadow box.  The flowers are fussy cut out and layered to create a 3D garden.  Some flowers have 2 layers and others have 3.

A closer look at Aurora.
 I printed the image out 3 times onto Neenah solar white cardstock and then fussy cut out all the sections I wanted to layer.  The digi is coloured with Prismacolor pencils and the background is done with a Derwent pastel pencil blended with a Dove blender pen.

Above is a closer look at the flowers and below the photo gives you a better idea of the dimension.  I also added shimmery transparent dimensional drops to the tendrils, flower centers and the background corners with a Viva Pearl pen in magic transparent white.  I layered the finished piece first on black cardstock, then pink and then another sheet of black and now she's ready to be framed.

Come and join the fun at The East Wind...we have 2 blog challenges every month and fun challenges on on our TEW Facebook Group too!
