Little Red Riding Hood

Hi All .... This card has taken me a total of 4 evenings to create, honestly I am so slow, it took me 2 evenings to colour the image, and then 2 evenings to make the card, sometimes I think it takes me more time to decide what I am doing than anything else!!  ... LOVE this image its a fab digi from Hannah Lynn., I have coloured using copic's.

I was going for layers of foliage to try and create the depth of a forest. First I stamped with my Kanban flourish stamp and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I framed using HOTP - Swirling vine, Spellbinders - Cherry blossom and the little butterflies are a memory box die.
