Tilda on Kraft

Hello everyone I hope your week is going swimmingly mine has sort of whizzed by in a blur but I think it was a good one! 
The weather is dark and dreary today AGAIN and I heard on the radio this morning that tomorrow (21st) is the longest day WHAT! we've hardly had any nice weather and now the nights are going to be drawing in I guess those 5 or so days of warm weather we had a few weeks ago was our summer this year!!!!
Well after that depressing note I shall swiftly move on to show you my card.  I thought I would use a Maggie for a change and went with 'summer flower tilda'.  She has been coloured solely with Prisma pencils onto Kraft card.  I followed the fabby sketch over at CLP challenge blog and this is what I came up with.
Image:  Magnolia 'summer flower tilda'
Medium:  Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansador
Papers:  Prima 'botanical collection'
Dies:  Spellbinders 'floral ovals'
lace/ribbon/pearls from stash
all matted onto cardstock from The Papermill Direct
I decided I wanted a double bow so used a little lace as well and I didn't have the right coloured ribbon so used my copic RV99 to colour some plain white satin ribbon.

A close up of Tilda and I so love that dark cardstock from the Papermill I think its called maroon and is such a rich sumptuous colour and goes lovely with the kraft.

Prismas used
Face/body:  light peach, peach, burnt ochre
Dress/boots:  seashell pink, dark purple, black cherry, mahogany red
Flower/wings:  beige, jasmine, lime peel, kelly green
Hair:  ginger root, light umber, dark brown
adding shadows and depth:  90% cool grey over the colours
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Catch up with you later folks and hope you manage to squeeze in some crafty time.
Take care,
