Mo's DP2 Challenge #102 -- Our Furry Friends

My three little furry friends really like Mo's challenge this week.  Especially Mattie who loves going to Grandma's house, just like Little Red Riding Hood.  

Red and her furry friend are merrily on their way to grandmother's house.  I kept the card simple because there is so much going on in the image with her beautiful red cape, the basket full of goodies, and her little dog grabbing at the gingham napkin on the basket.  The red background is embossed with one of the embossing folders in the "Once Upon A Princess" Cricut Complements set by Cuttlebug.  The other paper accents are from scraps. I found the red checkered rickrack in a box that had been packed away.  It's a great find, except that it is a very large skein of the stuff! My guess is at least 10 yards!! I see lots of red checkered rickrack accents in my future --- ugh!

I forgot to mention that the sketch came from Deconstructed Sketch so I am entering their challenge, too.

Well, I love the image and she was so much fun to color! It did take awhile but one of my favorite things about coloring Mo's images is the luscious folds and draping in the clothing.  Of course I used Copics and what would I do without the colorless blender? 

For more inspiration and magnificent coloring with all sorts of media be sure to hop over to Mo's DP2 challenge.  Lots of furry friends, too.  And by the way, here is my little Mattie -- always ready to go to Grandma's house!

Thanks for stopping by!
