Seeing Red *Marvelous Magnolia DT*

I applied to the DT call at Marvelous Magnolia a few weeks ago,
and I am happy to announce that I am a part of their new design team!
I am so happy, and this is my first time being part of a Magnolia-blog.
Hopefully it will make me want to color more regularly. :)

My first challenge is Seeing Red,
this is the midway reminder so you have a week to join in,
please pop over! :) 

Red is a color I have a lot of difficulties with, its just so strong.
And coloring with red reinkers can become orange or pink,
so that alone is extremely challenging for me.
So I inked up the image first, and I had this idea in my head,
but then I could not find a paper to match without it getting
a bit maritim, before I suddenly fell in love with this floral paper
that I believe is from 7 gypsies. I used some other left over papers,
a die cut doily. Also I was very low on bazzil, so I made the card on
cardboard so save my "white" bazzil. 

I inked Tilda up with my Distress Reinkers,
and I added Chalkboard Glimmer Mist,
and Star Dust Stickles. 

I used lace, red pompom ribbon, pearl swirls,
letters from American Crafts, and also some old book pages. 

Love this doily shape, I really need some more kinds of doilies.
I also used a few red flowers that I dipped in water to change the shape
of them, and discovered that when wet, they turn everything red.
The trash in my scrap room looks like it was used to clean up
a murder. I also used some branches with red berries,
and a brad.
