Challenge #226 - Pile It On

Happy Sunday (or Monday depending on where you are around the globe)!  Regan here playing hostess for the new challenge.  I am fighting a Summer head cold so it will be short and sweet.  Not being able to breathe through one's nose is exhausting!

We are thrilled to welcome back sponsor Aurora Wings to the challenge blog!  We love Mitzi's art and are so honored to have her here with us this fortnight!  Here is a little bit about this amazing artist:

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. 

Mitzi was kind enough to let the team select some images to work with and is offering our winner a $15 gift voucher to her shop!  You can find her on Etsy and on her website if the shopping bug hits you!  Aurora Wings also has a Facebook group and a challenge blog.

Our theme this time is "Pile It On"!  Interpret that any way you want: embellishments, layers, techniques, other challenges entered, all of the above or any combination of them.  Less is not more here!  More is... well, AWESOME!  Just be sure to tell us in your post how your project meets our challenge guidelines.

Let's see what the Corrosive ladies have stacked, layered, and piled on their creations!

My apologies in advance to you CAS (clean and simple) folks!  If you're a craft hoarder like me, though, this one should be a breeze!  What have you got for us?  We can't wait to see!
