Ruby, Cream and Gold with the extra option of Gems

***************************

To colour, or not to colour that was the questoin this week. Consequently I redid this image about 5 times. I stamped Miss Anya on cream paper and just coloured in the red,
then I tried giving her gold hair - awful!! Tried colouring her in completely - that was not the look I was aiming for, eventually ended up with this one and I'm still not sure - partially because the red turned out a different red on my photograph.
I've checked all my camera settings, tried it on various ones but still it's different. The gold button on her coat are my substitute for gems.
I had no papers the right colours, normally at this point I would look in my downloads are print some - no printing ink - am waiting for a delivery. I've just had an email from the supplier (in German!!!) I think it says it's on it's way but can't be sure - so it's wait and see.
I resorted to printing my own papers, I have two Colour Box red inks, Chianti and Merlot, so I used Merlot and poured my self a glass of...............guess what!! - to help me along the way. The stamp is from K&Co Lotus floral set. The corner cut with the cuttlebug vintage corners, the borders with MS lace doily and EK Success Parisian border and the leaves with a Woodware leaf punch.

Oh wow! I got those Cuttlebug corners and I haven't found a use for them yet except to make a stamp out of them. That's a fantastic idea!
Strange about the camera. Could it be the meter mode? Grasping at straws here.
