Be careful out there!

Ever since I first saw the What Big Eyes set from Susana Loves Stamps Eyes of Adventure and Fables Collection, I knew that I'd have to pair it with the Aspen Trees mini stencil by The Crafter's Workshop to create a Little Red Riding Hood card!

What Big Eyes set was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers which I'll list below. When she was done, I fussy cut her and put her aside, which made her pout. I assured her she'd have fun later, so she calmed down.

Anyway, I grabbed a piece of light grey cardstock, taped down the Aspen Trees mini stencil and sponged Forest Moss, Bundled Sage, Stormy Blue, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress inks over it. I also sponged an additional scrap of grey cardstock with Forest Moss and Bundled Sage ink, then tore it, edged the torn strips with Black Soot Distress ink, and adhered the strips to the Aspen Trees piece. I wasn't totally happy with the piece, so I sponged grey Pebbles Palette chalk to add some dimension and shading to the trees. Much better.

I adhered What Big Eyes, now in her role of Red Riding Hood, to the piece. I thought something was needed, so I die cut some black cardstock with one of SCACD's Classic Corner dies (two dies come in the set), ran them through my mini Xyron X machine, then painted on a layer of Black Ice Silks Acrylic Glaze to add some shine and shimmer to the die cuts.

I adhered the piece to a black card front. When I decide who will get the card and for what occasion, I'll add a sentiment!

By the way, Susana just added some really fabulous new products, such as new 6x6 pads, fabulous new stencils by ArtistCellar, the new Distress Stains, Spellbinders D-Lites, Make It Crafty chipboard, and Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl stamps to the SCACD store. Go check it all out!!!
