Shades of red

It's the second week for The cheerful stamp pad 'your choice' challenge - please click on the link and see what the rest of the design team have created and join in the fun.

For my card I used one of the images of the Indian Warrior digital set kindly supplied by Bombshell. I coloured this with spectrum noirs, keeping mainly to lots of different shades of red. I tore round the image using a perspex oval template and brushed with fired brick distress ink. The background paper is Basic Grey Indian summer. The beaded ribbon is a left over piece from some I bought some time ago. Everything was then mounted on to a stardream sparkly red card blank.
