PSC71 - Almost Monochromatic Lil Vintage Lolita Evie

Godd Morning and Happy Sunday! Today's challenge on Paper Sundaes is Vintage/Shabby Chic and it's sponsored by Tickled Pink. For my card I used Lil Victorian Lolita Evie from their Victorian/Steampunk collection - which is perfect for our challenge.
Vintage is not the style I usually do, so I colored several images in different colors and was not happy with the result and then I decided to try monochromatic (almost) and came up with this - this is actually the first time I colored monochromatic with Copics:
She's colored with Copics C1-C7 and to tone down her E00 skin I went over it with C1. All the edges are distressed with gray ink (hard to see). Another hard to see thing is the velvet ribbon I weaved through the lace. Pearls are made with my Viva Pearl pen.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Anita Be Stampin - Pearl and Lace
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Lace
The Spotlight Challenge - Challenge Yourself - challenged myself to color monochromatic with Copics
Sassy Studio Designs - Pearls, Lace & Elegance
Southern Girls - Pearls and Lace

Alica, this is beautiful! The pearls outlining the edge of your die cut remind me of the back of a wedding dress! So lovely! Congrats on winning Sassy Studio Designs' DTBST challenge with this gorgeous creation! :)
