Not the Prettiest Moose...

but he sure is cute isn't he!! This is my first Riley stamp. I was so excited when he came in the mail yesterday. I also got another one and hopefully I'll get a chance to play with him one day next week. This is my card for yesterday's WSC, hosted by the uber talented Cambria. Wow, it's so hard to believe that there have been 80 WSC challenges. I really like this sketch and plan to put it in my sketch book, so that I can do it again.
This fun summer Riley stamp made me think of bright bold colors, so that's why I chose the color palette that I did. I used some retired SU pattern paper and coordinated the other colors around that. I had a bit of a hard time coloring in Riley. I'll just have to play with him and find a technique that I like. For this one, I chose to stamp him on watercolor paper and then used inks, pencils and aquapainters to fill him in. Anyhow, I hope you like it. I've got a busy day ahead, and I'm not even dressed yet, so I guess I better get going. I've seen the OCC challenge for this morning; but I'm going to have to wait until Monday to do that.
Have a good weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
