Stay on the path you have chosen..........

Hi there!

I had great fun creating this one!  With a little forward planning, stage by stage this card came together.

I've made this card for the Allsorts Challenge this week of fairy tales and with the help of Sheena Douglass's lovely stamps I've produced Little Red Riding Hood walking through the woods to Grandma's house with big bad Mr Wolf looking on.

The little girl is quite an old stamp of Sheena's and the spooky house has been out quite a while now too but the wolf is a recent release from Sheena's Call of the Wild set.

That wonderful intence darkness of the woods has been created using sparkle pens with colour lifted out.  The wolf was stamped on to the sparkle pens and the ink lifted from him then covered in glossy accents to give him some dimension.  The house was actually stamped first, covered in drawing gum and the sparkle pens drifted straight over the top, then the drawing gum rubbed away.

With a bit of creativity and imagination, I have tried to give light to the house from Little Red Riding Hoods lamp with the use of distress ink working with the lifted colour from the trees and the sparkle pens.

The trees have been created using a Clarity Stamp stencil and black soot distress oxide before the lifting of the colour from the tree trunks -hope I'm making sense!!!!.

I will enter this in to this weeks Allsorts challenge of fairy tales and nursery rhymes:-

Hope you like it!
