Welcome to another challenge day at Little Miss Muffet Challenges where our theme for this fortnight is “Summer!” There is also a DT Call going on… so if you like Little Miss Muffet Stamps then head on over to submit an entry! Challenge and DT Call closes on Tuesday, August 2nd.
On my project I used “Peppermint as Red Riding Hood” from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and Spring Meadow from Whiff of Joy. What? I know, can you believe I didn’t use a Make it Crafty background this time!! But don’t worry, I made up for it with the chippies. ;D Plus I’ve got to get *some* mileage out of the Spring Kit before it collects too much dust. LOL
I think the papers are Sugar Rish from Basic Gray and the twill ribbon and pearls are from Stampin’ Up. I had this image colored up a while ago and so it was fun to be able to grab something and create a page in my journal right away. Although I did have to pause to color the background – but that wasn’t so bad.
I love the deep reds I was able to get with the hood. Usually reds show up too bright on film so this is a new combination I tried out. I starts with the expected reds, R22, R24, and R27, but then I jumped down and used R46 and R59 to darken it up. Another combination I find successful is R21, R14, R24, R37, R46 and R59.
