Challenge No. 29 with Lacy Sunshine



My second post in over a month! I am on a roll this weekend. I will have to take another break, but I will not let a month fly by before I post again.

We have Challenge #29 ready for you at the Lacy SunshineChallenge blog. This time around the theme is “Anything Goes.” Of course, there are rules, and you can read the guidelines here. There’s also a “loyalty” program, you won’t want to miss that.


For my “Anything Goes” project I decided I felt like a little Steampunk. My image that I chose is “Gia Von Gadget.” She is available in the “Lacy Sunshine Gang” section of Heather’s shop. I love Steampunk, and Gia is one of the cutest Steampunk babes I have seen in a while.

I colored Gia with Copics, did some fussy cutting, and then layered her on a cog from Spellbinder’s, and a Make It Crafty chipboard heart with wings. My designer paper is from Graphic 45. The paper was layered with Stampin' Up! Taken with Teal and Basic Black cardstock.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04,11, 21, R20
Hair: C1, 3, 5, 7, 9
Duster & Bow: BG78, 75, 72
Pants, Goggles, & Parts of Wings:
E13, 15, 17, 18, 19
Socks & Belt: Y32, 35, 38
Sprocket & Goggle Lenses:
Y00, 11, 15, YR23, 24, and
W1, 3, 5, 7


The cog and the heart with wings were accented with some of my favorite DecoArt products. The cog was accented with DecoArt Rich Espresso Elegant Finish Metallic Paint. After that was dry I rubbed DecoArt Black Shimmer Metallic Luster. I love the Metallic Luster. The chipboard piece was painted with DecoArt Elegant Finish Medieval Gold Glaze. Second coat was some dabbing with DecoArt Americana Antique Teal acrylic and the last coat was more dabbing with DecoArt Elegant Finish Glorious Gold paint.



For the final accents I added some chipboard black bats and metal sprockets.
