The Lady in Red ...

Okay, so she's not dancing but she's definitely in red and boy was that hard to achieve!  I hate doing colouring big areas in red, I have to be so careful it doesn't bleed!  I did this primarily for Die cut dreams Christmas challenge, yes I know it's not hat Christmassy, I'm going for subtlety!  The inside will have the real Christmas message!

I've started using a new technique on images like this, I've used my Derwent Coloursoft crayons and sansador oil to blend them out in order to create this 'glow'.  I like it so I guess it will keep appearing on my images!
