A little bit of fire

I originally coloured this image Adele for the colour challenge at Make It Crafty.  I hadn't made her into a card yet so when I saw this sketch from Sandra for the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge I thought here's my opportunity :)

I'd already done one image with black hair and I wanted to try my hand a doing a hot firey red head.  To do this I used ProMarkers a little black biro and white gel pen for the highlights and this was the result.  Obviously she's been sitting in on my desk since May but I cut her out this last week by drawing round the edge of a Spellbinder die. I had to hand cut it because the image was too bit for any of my dies and I didn't want to chop her hair off!
The design papers I used are from Lili of the Valley.  I've also used some golden organza ribbon, some yellow/gold self adhesive gems and some brass looking heart beads which I bought in Hobby Craft.

Yay finally got her on a card, so glad I did :)

Hope you join us this is the last chance this month to get into the draw to win the Make It Crafty.
