I just love the Riley moose stamps! They are some of my favorite stamps to color and I'm always ready for the next ones to come out. A few weeks back, there was a challenge on the Hanna Forum to combine two different stamp sets. I didn't get a chance to do the challenge, but had the idea to combine the Fishing Riley and Tent Riley. I finally got a chance to make my card last week. Click on the photo to see a larger image.
I started out by stamping my images and coloring them. Then, I rounded the bottom corners and matted the image. I pierced some holes to put my screw brads in. Then, I created my card base and bottom layers. I sewed the layers together. Then, I wrapped my twill around the card and attached it with some hardware and brads. I added my cardstock layers to the card and added my image using dimensional adhesive.
There are quite a few different ways to color using copic markers. I thought today I would share my process of coloring my images for this card. You will notice that it's a lot of using the same steps over and over when you're coloring each part of your image.
First, I stamped my images and used a copic multiliner pen to add some grass, a water line, and a line for my bank by the water. When I start coloring my moose stamps, I always start with the antlers for some reason. This photo shows what they will look like when they are finished and the markers I usually use.
Blend the greens by going over them with the lighter green marker until it is well blended. Go back with the darker green marker to add a little more to the grass and right under the tent.
I would love to hear what you think and see your creations. If I need to be clearer about something or something doesn't make sense, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
