Use Some Red ...

At Lost Coast Designs we challenge you to use some red ...

Here is my card, featuring Housewife :
I used a wordprint paper for the background and added a thin and messy layer of gesso. Then I stamped the large frame from Shadow Frames. I clear embossed it and sponged the edges in dusty concord distress ink. The embossed area resists the ink here so it retains the creamy color beneath.

House wife is stamped in elderberry memento ink and colored with copics. I wanted to make the red really stand out, so used very pale colors for the rest of her. Her slippers were so much fun. I sprayed some mini pom poms red, they look so real. LOL Here is a close up of her :
