Shading Red

I took me ages to work up the courage to do a card for this challenge at Make it Colourful .  I have trouble with reds, they usually end up everywhere except where they are sposed to be! LOL!
I read a very useful blogpost about complimentary colours on Jane's blog so thought I'd give it a go. What it means is that to get the deep shadowing on the red I used a green copic marker!  So with my R21, R22, R24, R27, R59, I did the shading with G94.  And it works !!!!!  Can you tell its green? NO!!



I spent the day at a dog show today and took some cute pics of some of the doggies but this one is my favourite, wee puppy Siri checking me out! What a cutie face!
