Mad For Markers - New Challenge - Red Hair

Hi Copic fans!!

Thursday is the day that I create and share a card with you to hopefully inspire you to join in with the latest challenge over at Mad For Markers.

Last week's Brown Hair challenge was a big hit. Congratultions to the winner and DT favourites!! There were so many fabulous entries, it was great to see.

The new challenge is set to be just as much fun as we ask you to show us your creations with RED HAIR this time.

Now I was going to go with the literal interpretation and use bright reds but then when I saw this cute little fairy (sent to me by my wonderful blogging friend Jill) I chose instead to go with a more traditional red head.

Can I draw your attention for a moment to the beautiful little yellow crochet flower. This lovely little flower was part of a larger pack of assorted colours sent to me for my birthday from another wonderful blogging friend, Helen from Let's Create. (One seriously talented lady who you should definitely pay a visit).

Thank you so much Helen, I absolutely love them!!

Now this is a new hair colour for me and it was a bit of trial and error but I am really happy with how it turned out.

Copic used to colour this image

Skin - E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair -  YR61,YR65, YR68, E33 and E35
Dress - B91, B93, Y13 and Y11
