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.
