oh no its that dreaded red again...

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and I didn't spoil your Sunday too much with the holiday snaps...I'm still away but am posting again, thank goodness for technology...when I first saw the challenge over at Whiff of Joy challenge I thought oh no way as its Strawberries and cream and you all know I struggle colouring red it just goes everywhere, I'm sure it has a life of its own, but I like to do things out of my comfort zone so decided to have a go...I love the Whiff of Joy city girl shes so elegant and beautifully drawn...I coloured her with distress inks and the papers are a mix of gingham's from scraps to a sheet sent to me from a lovely friend, I added a bit of my twirly ribbon thingy (that's a technical term) and a ceramic sentiment...the fab sketch is the June sketch from CLP challenge...I really enjoyed making this card and love the monochromatic look of it...have a wonderful day everyone

Would you believe, I kind of looked like that many, many years ago. Very pretty card, and beautiful coloring. You do red good.

Linda said...

Red is the most difficult color. It intimidates me too. Another alternative is paper piecing. Ha Ha. But you did a marvelous job with it Mina.
