Following on from the Copic workshop I went to last Saturday, I've had a go at colouring with red. It seems that together with black, red is one of the hardest colours to blend. Any colour is hard for me just now until I get in more practice, but the worse bit is judging where the light is angled and therefore where to shade. Funny really that I am struggling with this because in art at school, drawing still objects and getting the shading right was the only thing I could do with any success and even had a piece of art on the wall!!! Mind, it's a wonder I can even remember that far back!

This little card is for 3 challenges:

The Copic Colour challenge #51 - R29 - lipstick red, RV23 - pure pink and B12 - ice blue

The Totally Papercrafts challenge #3 - buttons and bows

The Allsorts challenge week 39 - A recipe with a difference - 3, 2, 1 - I've used 3 papers, 2 flowers and 1 image

Check out the links on the R/H side of my blog for all these challenges.
