iCopic Weekly Challenge #49 - Red Hair

Hello Friends! I'm your hostess this week for the iCopic Weekly Challenge. This week's challenge is to color red hair. I started off by choosing the super cute Shop Till You Drop stamp by Tutti Cuti. This image is so adorable! I loved her big smile, so I paired the image up with the "You make me smile!" sentiment from the Hello Friend stamp set by Lawn Fawn. So next up was the challenge portion of coloring her hair red. I started off by laying down a base color of E11. Next I built up the color by adding E13, E99 and E18. I blended the colors starting with E99, then E13 and ending with E11. I added some streaks of Y38 to create the final blend and brighten up the hair color to a nice auburn shade. I finished coloring the rest of the image and added in some paper piecing for her hat and boots. I finished the card off by adding some ribbon and a little bit of bling to her hat with a red heart gem. Doesn't she look like a little fashionista?

So are you ready to give this week's challenge a go? Come on and give it a try! I can't wait to see what you all create! There is a prize up for grabs for each weekly challenge.
