Lilac time

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments and support regarding on becoming a 'dirty girl' over on SCS.
It was such an exciting day yesterday when my first posts were revealed.  Such good times.  I can see why they say your 6 months will fly on by, well I can't believe one month is down and I'm starting to work on my cards for next month!  Don't worry, my blog posts will not be forgotten, although I can't post my dirty girl cards  on my blog for 6 months, I will still make cards to post here.  At first it might be a bit slow on my blog, but it will pick up once I get a routine going.  I hope you continue to stick with me through this process.

So that brings me to a post tonight.  I received my order from Power Poppy a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had a chance to use it.  I'm using one of the images from the set Lilac Time. I am also going to enter this into their monthly challenge - Pencil me in.

I love how I coloured the image, but over all just not pleased on the papers I used, maybe too much purple and green, I don't know for sure, but it's okay.  Here is what I did:

I stamped the image onto which cougar card stock using black memento. I used my prismacolour pencils to colour and blended with gamsol.  After cutting out the image I left the die in place and sponged some light purple around the edges.  Not sure of the colour I used because I just used one of my sponges that I used with purple ink.

For my ribbon, it started out to be white, so I using my V15 copic marker to colour it to match the lilacs and cardstock.  Added some glitter to the flowers to finish this off.

Oooh, I'm so happy to see this gorgeous image colored in pencils by YOU! You've always done such a beautiful job with your pencils and Gamsol and you're a huge inspiration. This is sooo pretty in the purple and green. Very fresh and spring-like. I still need to get over to SCS to see what you're sharing this month. A whole bunch of new Pauline cards all at once -- how exciting!
