Aloha Riley

Is it possible to be jealous of a stamp? I so wish I was swinging in a hammock, sippin' cold drinks on the beach at the moment! Okay, daydream over - on to the card. I used this sketch that I found on Maria's blog. My Riley is stamped with Palette Noir. I then colored him in with my Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I added a little shimmer by using some Twinkling H2Os to punch up the shading. The colors I used were Pink Azalea and Key Lime. I just brushed them on with my Niji Waterbrush! The top of the palm trees are cut out and raised with a dimensional. What can I say, some people like ribbon, some like glitter, others like hardware. I like to cut things out and raise them :) I just like that extra dimension it gives your card. The paper, cardstock and ribbon are all from the Lilly Anna collection from TAC. Perfect colors for summer and beach cards! I glued the Hydrangia Dew Drops on with my Mono Multi glue. It dries clear so you can't see a thing and it holds like cement! My sentiment is from A Muse. I cut it out using my circle and oval Coluzzle. It is also raised with a dimensional. I swear I might have a disorder. I have 7 cards on my desk and out of those 5 have raised parts. Hope y'all have a great day!
