Company Info/Artist Bio

Mitzi is a Colorado-based fantasy artist.  Originally from Japan, her art is influenced by the vintage shojo manga she grew up with, as well as the classic art forms such as tattoo art and woodblock prints of her native country.  Her fantasy art subjects range from cute and whimsical to dark and macabre, and everything in between.  Majority of her Aurora Wings digital stamps are made from the line art of her fantasy illustrations, giving them a uniquely distinct look of flowing lines with high level of detail.  Most are ink & pen traditional drawings, which are either colored free-hand in Corel Painter or traditionally with watercolor.  Her Etsy shop, Aurora Wings, offers digital stamps, prints, ACEOs, coloring books, and originals.

September challenge - Shades of one

Thank you to everyone who joined in with last months challenge, all of the design team have loved looking at your wonderful creations and visiting all of your blogs. You are all very talented.

This month the Crafting Cafe challenge theme is 'Shades of One'....... so, feel free to use whatever colour makes you happy, we just want to see lots of shades of one colour. Time to get your pencils, inks or pens out.... but don't worry, if you don't like to colour you could always use lots of shades of paper and create a paper piecing work of art. Whatever you do, we can't wait to see it!

We have 2 sponsors this month......

Watch this space to see all the great things the design team create over the month to inspire you.
To get the ball rolling here are two cards that I have made using images provided by both sponsors.

This one is using an image from Bugaboo (I adore working with the Bugaboo images),

and this one is an image from Scribble and scrap (I love this image - it looks just like one of my nieces)

I'll pop some close ups of these cards and a few others onto my blog. You can find that here....

Happy crafting
