Featured Artist Week - Mitzi Sato-Wiuff with Aletha

We’ve got a monthly challenge at One Sweet Challenge and it’s perfect to get you in the mood for spring. This month’s challenge and theme are “Ringing in Spring.” This might help to take away some of the blues for the places that are still getting snow.

For my project I decided to use the rubber stamp Rose Fairy 2. This beautiful stamp was designed by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff for Sweet Pea Stamps. I hope that it speaks the colors of spring. I do want to apologize for my purples not matching. In “real life” all purples are perfect. My camera does not like purples at all.

I have colored Rose Fairy with Copics and added layers of cardstocks. I did get adventurous with this little piece of art. I decided to use a Sizzix die, 3-D flowers, and make my own roses. I got the inspiration from one of my teammates, Milo. She has just the right touch with all of her embellishments. I also seem to collect a lot of laser cut shaped chipboard that I plan on using in some mixed-media work. My Eureka moment was “Why not use them on cards.” I do like how everything turned out.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, and R20
Leaves: G40, 82, 94, 99, and V12
Roses: V09, 12, 15, 17

I hope that you join us for this challenge. If you use a Sweet Pea Stamps image you will receive a $10 gift card to the online store. If you win, but you do not use a Sweet Pea image, you will receive a $5 gift card to the store. Why wouldn’t you use a Sweet Pea digital image or rubber stamp?

I would like to invite you to join us at our Sweet PeaStamps Facebook group. We have a weekly contest for your chance to win a digi of your choice from Sweet Pea’s store. Come “like” our page so you can receive all the updates on Sweet Pea happenings.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
