Red hair challenge #72

iCopic lover is hosting a colour challenge #72 this week and it's one of my favorites!  The challenge is to colour RED hair!!! Eeeek!!  I think this is one of my most favorite colours for hair.  I used the YR series for her hair, it's not exactly red but it's a more strawberry blond (on the orange side). LOL
I used a Social Teen doll head from Whimsie Doodles to make this card.  They have big heads that are perfect for customizing with hair clips, earrings or any other accessory.  This card was created specifically with my best friends daughter in mind.  She has gorgeous red hair and hazel green eyes and LOVE Angry Birds.  So I picked up that Angry Bird hair clip from Daisy Doo's Hair Clips, cut two slots in the hair and slipped the bow through.  Now the card IS the gift!

Materials:
Doll head-Whimsie Doodles
Copic Markers: Eyes-YG91,93
Hair-YR12,E97,YR18 *my favorite combo
Paper-Blush (Lost & Found)-My Mind's Eye
