Shabby Chic

Hello and Good Morning, thanks for stopping by.

Today starts a new challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog with a fun theme of Shabby Chic/Vintage/Steampunk. The image I'm using is Octavia Melancholy Moppet she has such a pretty face and I like her hat, she was a pleasure to color.

If you haven't visited  the Lacy Sunshine A Crafter's Candy Shoppe you are truly missing out on a fabulous shop with a wonderful selection of images for your projects.

Colored with Copics,  the background script was stamped (Acey Deucy) with Corduroy Distress ink, the pen was stamped (Raindrops and Roses), embossed with clear EP, colored and cut by hand.

I hope you'll come on over and join in the challenge, then I get to visit your blogs and gain inspiration along the way.

Challenges:
613 Avenue Create:  ATG/Twist
 As You Like It:  Markers, Ink? your favourites and why
Copics are my fav as I love the blending of them and selection of colors as well as being so versatile.
Clear it Out Challenge:  Anything Goes
Southern Girls:  ATG
Crafty Catz:  2 design papers or more
Sisters of Craft:  ATG

Lovely image, beautifully coloured. The little postcards are great as is the hand cut pen (well done !), and I like the finishing touches of the double butterfly, birdcage and bird. Thanks for joining in with the Sisters of Craft challenge, good luck and best wishes, Anne DT.
