New Challenge at Lacy Sunshine

The new challenge at Lacy Sunshine starts today with the theme of MONOCHROME.  We want to see tints and shades of one color with neutrals, skin and hair colors optional.  This gorgeous gal is Foxia Gembell Briar Whimsy. She's fussy cut and popped atop long ovals (both scalloped and regular) from Spellbinders with a fabulous flower from Joycrafts that sort of resembled a foxglove at her feet.  

This beautiful gal is colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and I've used DPs from the DCWV Black Currant Paper stack which made it easy to follow the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday (flipped and offsetting the ovals a bit, but you get the idea.)

I think she may just be my fave of the fabulous Briar Whimsies available in the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe

I colored her totally (including skin and hair) in the few shades listed on the recipe card, but then found it fairly difficult to find DP's to match so there are a few more neutrals than I intended.  I'm still really thrilled with how she came out and I hope you love her as much as I do.  The rest of the Sunshine Girls have fabulous inspiration for you so be sure to visit the Challenge Blog to see what they've created.  Also, if you joined our last challenge and used a Lacy Sunshine stamp you are eligible to receive our Loyalty Program digi for free, so don't miss out.  We are also now allowing coloring only entries which will be judged separately so if you have colored an image but can't quite make it into a project in time for the challenge, you're still good to go.  So many ways to WIN! Please join us.
