The Outlawz - Monochromatic

It's another fun challenge for you this week at The Outlawz - POM (Prisma's and Other Mediums). I hate to keep beating a dead horse but I've picked up a lot of new followers and I just want to restate...
Prisma's - Interchangeable for ANY colored pencils.
Mediums - Anything you use to create your cards! Our only stipulation is that you cannot use Alcohol Ink markers (Copics, etc. ) We have a Copic/Promarker challenge every Friday.
Also, don't forget to check out all the other great challenges every day of the week! 
This month we have Sassy Studio Designs sponsoring us with a prize of 4 free stamps to the winner!!  We also have sponsoring the entire site with a $50 GC this month! You can enter one card each week for each of the challenges! So some great prizes for sure!! Ok, now on to this weeks challenge which is
Here's what I came up with:
She was colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS. A brief word about Odorless Mineral Spirits. If you are looking for it at Michaels, etc. you will not find a bottle labeled with Odorless Mineral Spirits. It is called Odorless Paint Thinner. I use the Mona Lisa brand.
Here's a close up:
Colors I used:
Skin: Peach PC939, Light Peach PC927, Blush Pink PC928, Pink PC929
Hair: Pumpkin Orange PC1032, Mineral Orange PC1033, Goldenrod PC1034.

I created the ruching behind her by simply using ribbon and double faced tape on a scrap of paper cut to the same size as the stamped layer. 
Here's a close up of the sentiment:
Sentiment is Hampton Arts.
Stamp: Forever Rose from Crafts and Me
Papers: K & Company

Wow... well if you hung with me to the end I sure hope you will play along in our challenge at The Outlawz!
