Red Riding Hood

Good evening! I'm very late with my post today as my daughter has been visiting and we've been spending mother daughter time together until she went home today (and I'm missing her already). So it was a big rush to get this ready in time. 

Luckily I already had the image coloured as I was practicing my pencil work.  I have to admit that while I'm happy with my colouring I will redo the image as the paper (which was one of several I bought to try out, ended up being far too soft for this technique and as you can see the paper started coming away and 'splitting' a little. Which doesn't look tooooo bad on the cloak as it looks a little like velvet, but I'm not happy with it so I will redo and replace the image on the card later.

Colours used:

Skin: 285, 179, 188, 189, 132, 132, 103, 101, 131(blush)
Hair:, 199, 274, 271, 270, 101
Outfit: 199, 274, 271, 225, 219, 121, 101

I went for a slightly darker look here, some of the Brother's Grimm tales are quite gruesome, so I added in some black and the clock? well I kept remembering that old school playground game 'What's the Time Mr Wolf' lol.

I used the following products:

The ribbon, charm, lace and pearl trim are all from the Ribbon Girl

Well that's it from me today, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :) xx

  12. Well I have this stamp but had not much of a clue on what to do with her but you have done an AMAZING job on her. Bummer about the rip but you can't see it. Hope you are feeling better and have a Great Crafting week.

  13. It's great you and your daughter got to spend some quality time together.
    It's a shame you didn't like the paper you used for this image so the image didn't exactly turned out as you wanted it. I have to admit I don't see any spitting though. I think your card is amazing! :)
    Hugs! xx
