Ravishing in Red

The Three Muses set a challenge to use red in our art today.  I have no idea where this came from but sometime during the night it came :)


What do you mean I look a mess?

This is clearly a double spread in my journal, staring out with quinacridone magenta and lemonade and sour apple paint being roughly applied.  Next came some stamping in Archival blue, yellow and orange.  I found the cute picture of a pig on the Internet and cut her out then hand drew the fabulous over stuffed chair.  The chair is sprayed with Dylusions ink in Pillar Box red.  The chandeliers across the top are stamped in StayzOn ink and the font is done on my computer.
I added a crown and some ear rings and some lovely lipstick to Miss Piggy :)  Around the edges is some doodling and the chandeliers and ear rings have some Black Diamond Stickles

  7. Somehow thinking of pigs with lipstick always makes me smile.
    Wonder what shade of lipstick suits a pig's complexion?
    Great spread Liz.
