RILEY1910, Happy Anniversary!

Hello, it's time for another challenge from the Riley and Company Design Team! This weeks Challenge is Hosted by Therese, and she's challenging us to make something with a Wedding or Anniversary theme. Happy Anniversary Therese!

For today's challenge, I created a scene using Couch Riley (now Sophie, see her eyelashes!) and Toasting Riley! If you're new to masking, you can find a tutorial here. You can create such great scenes with this techinique, and it's very easy...as long as you remember to use the mask! I usually make my mask by stamping my image on plain old copy paper and cut them out. Then I put a bit of repositional glue/tape on the back.

For this image, I stamped Couch Riley/Sophie first. Then covered her with mask.
Next stamp Toasting Riley. I did use a stampa-ma-jig to get him in the right spot.
Now cover Toasting Riley with mask.
(I cut out with nestie before doing floor.)
Use straight edge of scrap paper and cover top portion of image, only leaving the bottom exposed. Now stamp wood floor. I did have to draw in some of the floor lines near the edge, just use a fine tip permanant marker and ruler.
Leave masks on Rileys and sponge around edges.
Now you're ready to colour them in!

I cut the image out with the nestie Label #5, coloured with copics, added crystal effects to the glass, chocolates and balloons. The chocolate box was coloured with a gold copic atyou spica. This whole panel is popped up. The heart on the sentiment tag was made with an EK punch, the smaller ones are MS punch.

The card base is black, with a layer of chery cobbler, and then DP from K&Co. black & Ivory pad.

So why not ink up those Riley stamps and join in the fun! Make sure to upload your creation to the Riley and Company blog, and use the keyword RILEY1910 when uploading to forums!
