Lady in Red

I didn't intend to do this image in red originally I was going to do pale wispy pinks or purples. I was colouring something else red and I got to wondering how she's look red.

I've had her coloured for a while and decided I'd use her to create some inspiration for today's new Facebook challenge in my group SheepSki Designs.

She's been coloured with Copics.  the streaky background was also created with Copics.  I've added two different colour embossing enamels to her before distressing the edges and mounting it onto some red card to frame.

Using a shaped card which I've backed with red card I've drawn, cut and distressed the same shape in a smaller version to create a border.  The design paper is from Lemoncraft.

Behind the image you can see some some lace which I got from Noor Design.  The wood chipboard cherry blossom spray I've overlaid the image with is from Mismasz.

To finish a few pearl gems.

Happy crafting
