Mostly Red

Never tried using all red before as it seems such a harsh colour but I quite like the finished effect of this card, although its been glimmer misted to add some bling.......can't not do bling.
The image is from Crafty Individuals these stamps are so detailed and easy to use, I used Fired red brick and tea dyed for the background of the image and then misted with gold glimmer mist to get the mottled look. I also sprinkled a little bit of gold embossing powder in certain parts before the image to give a metallic finish, the lace was misted to match the background as was the ribbon, heart cut was distressed with red brick and a music image again from Crafty Individuals stamped onto it.
