Seeing RED at Crafts & Me

Tracy has set us a nice theme for the next 2 weeks at Crafts & Me and she wants to see RED!  Should be quite easy with valentines fast approaching :)  I picked this stamp by Lemon Shortbread called Shoppng Melody (available here) as I got her before xmas but havent inked her up yet so now I have!

I've coloured her with promarkers, pencil and sakura stardust and added spots to the dress with an inksentials white pen to match the dotty red one (from one of the xmas packs at Bearly Mine) I've drawn roughly around her with a grey pencil then blended it out with sansador and repeated about 3 times to get a graduation.  The brown dp is DCWV and I think the striped is HOTP xmas pack.  I've inked around the edges with pink distress ink (work lipstck) then over stamped the flowery swirl in the same ink, the sentiment is also from the same stamp set (Butterfly Beauties at stampman)  Added sparkle to the white flowers and a couple of red pearls.

Hope you can come join us for our red challenge!
