Meet Lilith...

Good morning all.

Last day of the holidays here so back to normal tomorrow.

I had a couple of hours to myself yesterday afternoon so settled down to do some colouring homework...the results could only be described as diabolical!! I decided my fine nibs might work better but could I find the two clean ones which have been put somewhere safe...could I heck!!
This image was lying on my desk so I decided to give it a whirl instead.

The image is called Lilith from PPinkyDollsArt....I've fallen in love, these are gorgeous. I've coloured with promarkers and although it's not perfect I'm very happy with the outcome...so happy I wanted to make something to keep. This years calendar stubs were still lying on my desk so voila...my favourite Spellbinder die, a pearly swirl (I've had these for ages and am too mean to use one on a card lol) and gems and I have a lovely easel calendar for my desk.
Unfortunately the colours haven't come out too well in the photos, in reality the card is a lovely dusky greeny blue colour and Gig's dress is coloured with soft green.

  13. Saw this in the f/b group and she is adorable...haven't coloured any of mine as yet, eager to do so...xxxThe Journey is the Start

  14. This card is so very sweet and pretty. i smiled when i read your comment about being to mean to use the pearly swirly lines. I have some of those too and don't use them often enought either. I think i hoard them.

    I brought some bling up to the lake...It gets really hot here...can go to 42 degrees...so it forces me to use them as if too hot they fuse tot he acetate! lol Perhaps next year I should bring a few of the swirly lines! lol

  15. This is so fabulous, just love it and oooh your colouring is marvellous. Adore this project!
