Vintage, Shabby Chic, Steampunk at Lacy Sunshine

Our new Challenge starts today at Lacy Sunshine with the theme of Vintage, Shabby Chic or Steampunk.  Take your pick!  I was all set to do Steampunk when I came across the gorgeous Breena Garden Music Box Melancholy Moppet and I knew she'd be perfect!  I made  a vintage banner wall hanging using DP from K&Co, a lace die from Heartfelt Creations, ovals from Spellbinders and music notes from Cuttlebug.

Here's beautiful Breena all colored up with Copics with a bit of extra shading with a black Prismacolor pencil.  She's fussy cut and popped with foam.

And here's the Lacy Sunshine Recipe Card listing all the supplies and colors used.  I gotta say, this makes such a great reference for future coloring as well as this particular project.  Hope you find this helpful to you, as well.

Here's the dimensional shot.  You can also see the bit of distressing I've done to the DP on the banner and oval with the edge of my scissors.  Wasn't quite sure if the project is Vintage or Shabby Chic, but either way, it flies for the challenge.  LOL  Finishing touches were the roses on the music notes and crinkle seam binding bow and hanger.  There's a great variety this time on the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog so be sure to check out my teamies' fabulous creations.  Also, don't forget to check out the Loyalty Program digi you can get for free if you used a Lacy Sunshine image in the last challenge or may buy for 50% off for the duration of the challenge.  And for those of you who just like to color, we now have a colored image only category for our challenges.  WooHoo!  Can't wait to see what you create.

I'm entering this in the Allsorts Bingo challenge (ribbons flowers, die cuts), Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge ATG/Spring Flowers, Crafty Catz 2 or More Patterned Papers, DL.Art April Linky Party, Inspiration Destination ATG, Not Just Cards ATG, Craft Your Passion ATG, Papertake Weekly ATG, Natalie and Amy's Frame It Challenge, and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
