Bathing Riley

This is my card for the Hanna Stamps Sketch HSC21 (see sketch link below). Believe it or not I currently do not own any Riley stamps but hope to soon after the next release on Friday, June 20 th.

I was fortunate to receive stamped images from my friends on the Wish Rak group. To make Riley suitable for the tub position I colored and cut out his body from a Tractor Riley image and colored and cut out the head from a Plane Riley image and pieced them together. I used my copics, I love the sound of that but in truth I only have a handful of them. I started by buying Riley colors and hope to slowly expand one copic at a time if necessary.

The tub is from My Favorite Things Presents(Annie LaPointe). I stamped the image, cut out the tub and since the tub was too long I cut out a section and pieced it together to make it fit on the Mega Scallop punch. I used several scraps for the card including two pieces of blue ribbon that I tied together to make a bow. I also cut out a line of bubbles to make it look like a real bubble bath and used the matching paper to follow the sketch. Although this challenge wasn't a limited supply challenge it certainly felt like one. The overall card is 4.25 by 4.25 which happened to be the size of the scrap piece of cardstock.
