**A Touch of Red**

color ANY image ANY way you like
but it must have some RED in the image somewhere!!
Our Wonderful sponsor is Tiddly Inks!  

I used this adorable digital image called Aisha  from Tiddly Inks.       I am currently taking Suzanne Dean's class on "Hair" and used her color combo and technique for coloring this image.    Doesn't she look like she is "styling"? LOL  I realize the hair looks rather "ginger" colored but this particular color combo is listed as "red " hair.   

Copic Alcohol Ink Markers
Hair: E07, E15, E02
Dress YG63, touch of G18, G40 and Colorless Blender for texture. 
Blouse:  B03, B02, B00
