New Release Showcase - Winter Lullaby

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to our first new release showcase of 2015!!  I'm super excited to introduce "Winter Lullaby", one of my popular illustrations in digi format.  The original illustration was done in a loose style, which is very different from my usual in that I go from rough sketch in pencil directly to digital coloring, thus skipping the inked line phase completely.  The result is a less detailed, more impressionistic illustration, which does not have the manga/anima feel procuded by the meticulously clean line art.

The Showcase DT has flexed their creative muscles and tackled this digi for the gallery.  Everyone brings her own touch of style and personality to the image.  Each is unique, distinct, and beautiful.  Hope you enjoy the showcase!

The "Winter Lullaby" digi comes as a 1500 x 2100 pixels black and white JPG at 300 dpi (prints to 5" x 7"/12.7 x 17.8 cm).  It is available at AW Etsy shop here and at AW web shop here




We are happy to welcome back our AW sister, Aletha J. Williams to the Showcase DT after a brief hiatus.  I'm sure you remember her from the AW Challenge Blog DT and also at Sweet Pea Stamps fb (SPS is the manufacturer/wholesale/retail seller of my rubber stamps, in case you didn't know.).  Nice to have you back on the AW team, Aletha! ^_^

On today's showcase, we are also joined by Karina Creawitch and Debbie Pamment from the AW Challenge Blog DT.  Thank you for joining us for this showcase, ladies!! ^_^

One more announcement to make today regarding out design team.  You may have noticed that one of the familiar name is missing today from the showcase, and it's because Silvia Sencaka is on a maternity leave for a while.  She's expecting her second child.  Congratulations, Silvia!  We are looking forward to the birth of a healthy and happy baby (and your return to the AW Showcase.)!! ^_^

OK, I lied.  One last bit of news here.  A new AuroraWings shop is "under construction" at Storenvy.  This is in addition to the Etsy shop and the shop at my official site (So it's a 3rd location!).  I thought I'd mention that, in case you are worried that I'm closing one of my shops - I'm not. :D  The Storenvy location will be dedicated to nothing but digis and the shop will be categorized based on subjects, just like the AW shop at my site.  The functionality is a bit different, so I'd like you to be aware of the difference.  There is no automatic download, so you'll be receiving your purchased digi files as e-mail attachments directly from me - the old-fashioned way.  Coupon codes will be handled like a rebate (I'll issue refund via PayPal if you mention the code in a PP note at the time of transaction.).  I'll be adding listings to this new shop in the coming weeks (and probably months) to make shopping convenient for you (especially if you're from UK and Germany - and possibly many other EU member nations*).  * Of what little we could gather on the new EU digital VAT regulation, at least the UK and German governments have indicated that digital files delivered via e-mail attachments, requiring certain 'human involvement' as opposed to 'fully automated delivery' are not considered to be covered under the law.  So no VAT will be incurred.  Situation may change, but that is what we know as of the date of this post.

And final reminder.  Our current challenge "All That Glitters" ends tomorrow at 11:55 pm ET US, and a new challenge will be announced on Monday, January 19th.  There's still plenty of time to join our Facebook group's monthly contest "Gemstones", which runs through the end of January.  Hope to see you there~!!
