Trick or Treat at Lacy Sunshine's Digs

We have a fun one for you this time around! Well, really, all the challenges are fun but this one is perfect for the season that is going to be upon us very quickly. Our Lacy Sunshine challenge is “Trick or Treat with Stitching, Faux or Real.” See, FUN, FUN, FUN, FUN!

For my project I was given the cutest little Lacy Sunshine digi, “Eleanor & Pickles, Ve Vant Candy.” I think that Heather knew that I usually do stand-alone images, or maybe not, and that’s why I got this one. She challenged me, or I challenged myself, whichever. But I was challenged, and I’ve got to say that I loved coloring this little duo. When I can color green hair, I am always game. You can find Eleanor & Pickles in Heather’s Seasonal section.

I did print the image twice. I like to have a backdrop of the image, and then a fussy cut image to pop up from that backdrop. They were first colored with Copics, and a few highlights with Spicas and a white gel pen were added. The backdrop was colored and cut with Spellbinder’s Labels 23.

Copics used:
Skins: E000, 11, BV000
Hair, Eyes, & Pickles:
YG61, 63, 67
Bow, Shoes & Pickles Eyes:
YG21, 23, 25, 67
Dress, Sleeves, & Socks:
YR00, 12, 14, 18;
V000, 09, 12, 15, 17
Pumpkin & Glasses:
YR00, 12, 14, 18

Eleanor & Pickles was mounted on two more Labels 23 cuts with Stampin’ Up!’s cardstock in Marigold Morning and Crumb Cake. My faux stitching was done around the embossed areas of the die cuts. I had some chipboard bats that I added. I also added some Memory Box Bunch of Bats (available in the Lacy Sunshine shop) die cuts to fill in some of the empty space. You would not believe how much I am using this little die. “Ve Vant Candy” was computer generated and added after everything was assembled.

There will be an image available for you to use for this challenge. All the details will be in the Lacy Sunshine challenge blog. After you have created your little piece of art for our Trick or Treat challenge, please stop by our Lacy Sunshine Facebook group and share it with us.

Thanks for dropping by! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate asking.
