Aurora Wings.......................Monochrome


I'm here with another Aurora Wings images - I hope you're not fed up with me just yet!!!
This is one I used from my Challenge win - I fell in love with this one - just look at that adorable face - this one is Grumpy face with an Acorn
The Aurora Wings current  challenge is Monochrome - with this image I really had to use orangy/brown colours. Just to make life difficult for myself I decided to use watercolour paints - hmm - I think I'm out of practice watercolouring!! 
The distress inks I used for the background and us them to stamp the borders with some peg stamps. I used some of the inks for the image but used the more intricate details with Copics.
I didn't think flowers were suitable to I added some Marianne's Designs along with some gems and pearls.
Surprisingly I rather like the finish although I don't really like orange as a colour!!
