Red ATC Card

Here is an Artist Trading Card from the same color swap. (ATC= 3 1/2 x 2 1/2) I chose red. I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted to do of red sunflowers and ladybugs. I decided to paint in acrylics! It was a challenge as we aren't supposed to use any other color. I had to mix whites with red, and black with dark red, so I can get the shading of things going okay. I really like the result! I sewed the trim on the bottom, and embellished with some red glitter paint on the leaves and inside the flower. I used red stickles and burgundy stickles to create the ladybugs.
