Red Hearts Nearly

I've never quite gone the whole hog with Red Hearts colouring her every other way except the original. I nearly did it this time but the lady this is for has long blonde hair and blue eyes so I coloured to match :D She's also a bit "Goffik" and the image quite suits that so this is my Goffik easel post it in red, black and silver.

Image is Red Hearts by Sweet Pea available at Crafts and Me in the UK here. I coloured with Promarkers and used the blender pen a lot on the wings. Must resist putting on glitter - Its for a Goff! I've added a lot of little detail to this - the mirror is silver foil I put on with a glue pen, let dry and add a sheet of the fol over the top. I also did the same technique on the bodice and bracelet. Ive used a sakura clear glaze pen on the eyes, lips and tiny hearts for a glossy look.

Papers are unknown, I think one may be dcwv and the other (red) Brenda Pinnick. The centre panel I couldnt find anything that complimented the other two so decided to make my own using one of Tracey Coates stamps here and embossed with silver super sparkle embossing powder. That was one of the first EP's I ever bought so must be 7 years old! Big red flowers are from Hobbycraft and the tiny rosebuds from Wild Orchid but were white so I promarkered them black :)
