My first Riley!


I live in Maine so you'd think I'd have a ton of moose things. Well, I don't. Up here they're not as cute as we get to depict them in rubber! They run into cars, clop along the road and just flat out don't pay any attention to you! But our Riley is a totally different story!

Hanna Stamps has the cutest line of moose stamps called Riley and Sophie and they are just a scream! I've got some Hanna stamps but no Riley's yet. Kristina from the Hanna Yahoo Group sent me some Riley images in an image exchange we did and this is my first attempt at Riley. I love the colors and thought orange would go great with that little brown body of his. Since he's watering flowers, I used my Stylized Flowers cuttlebug folder with him and colored him with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The patterned paper is from Scenic Route and I used Prisma flowers on him. I think he came out great! I know the picture's fuzzy. We're still working on fixing the camera!

Now if we could just the moose in Maine to water flowers instead of eating and stomping all over them, we'd be doing great! Have a great day!
