Shadow puppets and silhouettes

I’ve always loved shadow puppets, my favourites being the ones I recall from childhood such as the mid-European shadow puppet stories on the TV – especially if they had the very detailed forest scenes.  The idea of cutting paper or card in such a detailed and delicate way is fascinating.  I recall one of Snow White and Rose Red
