My Secret Garden – AuroraWings Challenge

This fortnight, our challenge theme at AuroraWings Challenge Blog is ‘My Secret Garden‘. There are plenty of images in the shop that would work for this theme,

Image may contain: flower and text

I chose to use one of the darker ones – Dark Princess. You can find the link below.

I used Polychromos pencils to colour her and in a change from my usual style, I drew with crosshatched lines. I wanted to add some texture and this seemed to work, creating a sketchy feel.

I added subtle bling with Stickles glitter glue in orange. black and green, highlighting some of the detail in her hair and the lilies.

My Sizzix ravens added a spooky silhouette across the bottom of the image and worked well with the Graphic45 papers from the Once Upon An Eerie Tale collection,

Thanks for stopping by, please do come and join in the challenge. You don’t have to use an AuroraWings image, but if you do you may enter up to three times!!

  1. Love, love, LOVE your take on this challenge, Teresa and your coloring style on Dark Princess is just gorgeous! That cross hatch coloring is truly amazing and the sparkle adds a mysterious glow. Great details in the ravens and ornate web. I can almost feel a chill in the air. Fabulous! xxD

  2. I love your colored pencil work on the Dark Princess image, Teresa! Absolutely gorgeous and magical. I also adore the Halloween color palette with spicy orange and dark purples that ground the whole. Thank you so much for this stunning inspiration for our latest challenge at Aurora Wings today!
