Dream Valley Challenge #4 - Easter

Here's this week's challenge from Dream Valley Challenges. The challenge this week is "Easter" and our sponsor is Stitchy Bear for the digi's. This is the first time I've used a digi and boy let me tell took me 4 times to color this image! The first two I loved but then I decided to do something creative. So I attempted to do a crackle glaze over the top using mod podge and paint. It looked like a chocolate poo covered easter egg! LOL So I decided to just color the image and it turned out better. I'm sure I'll get better over time. Here's the final masterpiece :)

I was going for the Granny Chic look. I learned this style a few days ago and was so excited to finally have a name for my style (or at least the style I love). I took a dollar store shadow box, covered it with dollar store shelf liner and added all the trim, ribbon, vintage buttons and wood shapes I had laying around that was Easter-y. I did the best coloring I could with the markers I have (even did a little shading)! Here are some close ups:

This is stunning. You chose the most difficult of the designs to colour and what a gorgeous job you have made of it. Love that you have turned it into a wall hanging!
