Seeing Red!

There is no time for stopping with such a busy schedule ahead, this couple has places to go and people to see….

You can see that this wild and crazy couple is speeding through a red light just so they can keep to their very rigorous social calendar.  🙂  The main image was stamped on white cardstock and then stamped several  more times on various shades of red cardstock, so that the shades of red could be used in paper piecing the clothes, hats, and shoes of this busy couple.  The rest of the image was colored with Prismas and Gamsol.  Below is a close up of the paper piecing.

The white backgroud was dotted and rubbed with metallic rub-ons, and layered with yellow embossed cardstock.  The “stop here on red” sign is layered with yellow cardstock and adhered with a foam square to make it pop out, making it obvious they have violated the law.  The traffic light is a computer generated image and the red light was glazed over using a clear glitter gel pen and was cut out and adhered with a foam square to make it scream STOP!
