50 Shades of red

Hello everyone,

Today I decided to take part in the Stampingback Challenge which this month is 50 shades of red.
I thought this was a true challenge as I hardly ever used red in my crafting so I struggled a bit.
I am also entering this card into the Craft Stamper Challenge of 'take a stamp'.

I couldn't resist using this fabulous Ballerina again.. Today I coloured her with coloured pencils. The background was stamped with red ink first and then I went over it with Copic Markers. It then was too red for the ballerina to stand out so I used some gesso to tone it down.  The flowers were white embossed, coloured and cut apart and I only used part of them. 
The dancer was placed on some washi tape. The last thing I did was draw some lines around the panel before adhering it to a card. 

Thank you for stopping by today !

  4. I do not see any sign of struggle in fact this is a masterpiece. The ballerina is full of grace and there is a beautiful sense of movement to the piece and the red makes it all the more striking.

  5. I love the card. Where did you get ballerina?

    1. Hi Cindy, the ballerina is from a Dutch Stampcompany called Stampingback.
      Hope this helps. Corrie
