New Challenge #162 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi again,
Well I think my poor little Furbaby is
terrified out of his poor wits.
Like all cats and dogs at this time of year,
we need to give them plenty of hugs and cuddles.
Though I don't think he understands why
there have been 4 days of terrifying noises.
With the other half working nights as well this week,
I haven't even seen any bonfires or fireworks
(those seen out of your window don't count lol).
But I hope everyone had a good and safe Guy Fawkes Night.

I wanted to follow a Sketch again this week
and I chose this one from
Sketch Saturday

The Theme at
Use Some Red

Our Sponsors this week are:-

SLS Lines who are offering
3 Images from their store.

The Stamping Boutique who are offering
2 Images from their store
(or 3 if a TSB or Glitterbabes Image is used).

3 Images from their store.

Ppinky Dolls who are offering
3 Images from their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Red Riding Hood Digi Stamp
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used a 17cm Square White Card
which I Matte and Layered up using
Red Card
and White/ Red Dots and Red/White Dots Paper
Placing the 2nd Layer at the angle wanted in the Sketch.

Next I printed off the Image
  on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens
Soft Lime
Salmon Pink
Lipstick Red
Berry Red
Meadow Green
Leaf Green
Olive Green
Pastel Blue
Blue Pearl
Denim Blue
Midnight Blue
Burnt Sienna
Burnt Umber
Ice Grey 1
Ice Grey 2
Ice Grey 3
Ice Grey 4
Ice  Grey 5

Once I backed it onto some more Red Card,
I added Glamour Dust
to the Ground Area to look like Snow.
And to both the Girl and the Wolf's Eyes
I added some Glossy Accents

For the 'Ribbon End' on the Sketch,
I cut it out of some White Glitter Card
(from my Scrap Box).

I added 1mm White Seed Pearls to the Sky Area

for Stars/Snowflakes.
And on the Corners I add 3mm Red Pearls

Finally I Handmade my Bow using
1cm Red with White Polka Dots Satin Ribbon,
(Boyes Haberdashery).
