"Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter." (Northanger Abbey)

SO... I was ogling the new Victorian Steampunk beauties released by Tickled Pink recently and poof, up popped an announcement that Kellie was giving away some freebies to the first fifty respondants... I SO didn't think I would've made the cut off, but then Kellie updated the blog and mentioned there were still some spots! SO... whoo hoo, I was blessed with a Lil Victorian Lolita Evie! :)

Here she is in all her shabby chic splendour, fully colored in copics (oooh ooh, did I mention that I JUST got copic certified this week in Philadelphia? The two hour ride was SO worth the pretty certificate and all the awesome techniques I learned from Lori Craig!!! BUT that's a whole other post in and of itself! :)

For this card, I used the Super Sketchy Sunday design from 365 Cards, and the Tickled Pink challenge is Anything Goes (as long as you use an image from them!). Paper Sundaes also asked for Sentiments along with or without images...This sentiment came from Paulette over at TLC, and totally fit this Victorian fashionista!
Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11
Dress: T0, T6, 0, E04
Hair: E23, E25, E27

Accents: Viva Pearl

Thanks for looking! :) Stay cool... the forecast is up to 97 degrees tomorrow, and we have officially cancelled schools because of the heat advisory!


  1. Simply gorgeous! Love the perfectly distressed panels behind your Evie image! You coloring is top-notch and the touch of liquid pearls is genius! Also, congrats on becoming Copic certified! That is very cool! :)
