Hello all! I am just a little late in posting but there is a new challenge this week over at Crafts and Me! It's a fun one...Stitching - Real or Faux! I love stitching on my cards but I have to admit it is a whole lot of effort to pull out the sewing machine and thread it just to do a quick stitch around my cards! But I do love the finished effect. I have used a new image from Crafts and Me this week called Melissa. I couldn't decide how to colour her until Jon suggested she was Red Riding Hood :) hehe


Please don't ask how I coloured the wolf because I have no idea LOL! I kinda just prayed it would turn out ok! I am happy with the result though...he looks cuddly to me :) Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, BG13, BG49
Outfit: R32, R35, R37, R59, E15
Wolf: W0, W1, W3, W5



Hope to see you all playing along with this week's challenge! :D

  44. LOL..I just ready Tracy's comment and then had to go run back up to the card...she does have fangs! Hee hee..must be the new 'goth' Little Red. I've never heard a wolf described as cuddly, but you are absolutely right...this one does look so docile and sweet. Your card is glorious chica. I love the depth of your coloring that bring life to every card!
