Mythology Inspired By A Story

 Designer Spotlight
 Simon Says Stamp Shop

 SSS Monday Challenge

Red Riding Hood

And again it's a Monday Challenge. This time it's all about 'Mythology inspired by a story'.
I let myself be inspired by Red Riding Hood. I just love the red cape 😉
The base for this project was a stamp from Jane Davenport. The faces in her stamps are beautiful.
And what I like about it, is that you can put your own creativity and drawingskills in it.
At first I used an eye from the Jane Davenport Mix and Match Eyes Nose and Mouth. I used a Tombow Mono Drawing Pen to draw her face, hair and cape.

For the background I used Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio, and sprayed some water on it. I made a stencil out of a Tim Holtz Sizzix Small Tattered Florals Thinlits Die and put the flowers in the corner. The colour is Walnut Stains from Distress Oxide. 

To create the fire red hood I blended some colours. Distress Ink Fired Brick and Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Shimmer. I used this same blend with a lot of water for her face. For her lips it was just the Pink Shimmer with a little bit of water.

Her hair is a combination of Distress Oxide Walnut Stains with water, Distress Crayon Squeezed Lemonade, Distress Crayon Black Soot, and a Glass Marker from Arteza Gold.
I must say I just love to work with the Distress Crayon Black Soot. I use it to create shadow of just a grunch effect at the edges.

The texture on her right side and a little bit in the left corner at the bottom was made with a 

Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Feather. I blended the texture paste with Infusions In the Navy Colored Stain. On top of it there's some Nuvo Mousse Gunmetal Grey to give it a little shine 

When you look closely I gave the background a little effect with a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Dotted.

I hope it gives you inspiration for your own projects. And hope to see you next time!
