Little Red

Little Red Awaits Her Cake! A quick card

   I embossed and lightly sanded a piece of DCWV card. I stamped an image (my beloved Paperartsy I think) in Black Memento Ink onto a card with a good grain on it in order to achieve a slightly patchy effect. I matted this onto red glitter felt to add depth.. Glitter was added to the debossed DCWV card and I added a collar and bow to the girl, who I coloured in using Fired Brick Distress Ink. I also added a swirl of glitter to mirror the swirls on the arch in thestamped  image. 

    I took a very quick piccie because Sherlock Holmes is on TV tonight and I've lots to do, including hunting for my other No 6 knitting Needle!

I am entering this card into The Stampman Challenge 'use red'

and the spicy Ribbon challenge over at Gingersnap Creations

Hi Anna, this is lovely. You've inspired me to try red on one of my projects, it's a colour I hardly ever use.
