Lovin' Riley...

So do you remember the post where Stacy sent me the cutest Riley's?!?!?! Well last night I had the chance to play with them and I love them!!! :D I colored them in before I went to work yesterday and when I came home after a much needed nap I was ready to work on them.

This first card uses Tennis Riley Moose. Now this card was totally inspired by Cindy Haffner's card that I saw on SCS where she was featuring one of the new MFT sets. I just fell in love with the color combo and how she used two different Cuttlebug folders for her background. Cindy does fabulous work and I am always drooling over her creations on SCS. So my colors are Moonstruck, Orange & White Daisy. I used the Swiss Dots & Spots & Dots folders for my background and tied some orange polka dot ribbon in the center. I colored Riley using my Copics and CTMH Markers, and for the tennis ball I used CTMH Kiwi ink and my blender pen. I layered him each on a piece of Moonstruck CS & Orange CS and pop dotted him onto my base. Now I made a mistake because I wanted to give his racket a little shine so I added some Liquid Glass to it, but it kinda made the middle run together. Oh well, I still like it!!! :D For my sentiment I stamped it in Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto White Daisy CS, layered it onto a piece of Orange CS and added some jeweled brads and called it done. Aren't these colors great?!?! Nothing I would ever think to put together, but I think they go well!!! :D

Now here's second card I have to show you, using Carrying Tree Riley. I just love it for a Christmas card and I love that cute scarf he's wearing!!! :D I had some paper that I got from my LSS awhile ago that was the perfect Christmas paper for this card. Now I made the LO of the two cards the same, I tend to do that quite a bit. The colors I chose were Holiday Red & White Daisy. I think the dp color resembles Clover Meadow to me, so that's what we'll call it!!! :D

Well that's it for today! I hope everyone has a Fabulous July 4th!!! Be safe! :D

Oh! I love your little moose cards! I am so into your color combos, I write them down, because I have a tendency to always play it 'safe'. The first card, NEVER would have thought to put those colors together, but they do work really well. And the Christmas moose is the cutest ever...your coloring is amazing, he's got his little shadow and everything! Lovin' your ribbons, too! TFS~Barb
