Shades of Red ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #432

(This is my second post today.  If you are looking for The Merry Christmas Challenge specifically or just want to see another one of my cards please scroll down.  Thanks!)

Hello again.  Welcome back to my blog and to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week I am the hostess and my challenge is called  SHADES OF RED.  I want to see all shades of reds and pinks on your projects.  The only exception are neutrals (white, black, brown).

This card is a bit of a departure from my usual "cutesy" style and I am pleased with the way it turned out.  The rose image is a free digi colouring image coloured with Copics.  Background is Tim Holtz distress inks on watercolour paper splattered with water and black paint.  Sentiment is from Michaels $1.50 bin from many years ago.  Sequins are from my stash.  An elegant, romantic Valentine's Day card.  (and yes, the leaves of the image are green but I didn't think black leaves would be too appropriate....)

As always, head on over to Little Red Wagon and check out the inspiration of the Shades of Red from the other girlfriends.  And link up a project of your own.  You have until next Tuesday evening when I will pick the ones that stood out the most to me.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!


  1. Fab card, Heather! Gotta love those $1.50 Michaels stamps. The black splatter is a splendid touch.

  2. The rose is a real beauty, and I love the background you created! The spatters and sequins add such a wonderful touch to this pretty card!

  3. Gorgeous, Heather! That background is gorgeous and your coloring is spot on. Thanks for the fab challenge.


Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I love to hear from you, my friends.
