No Coloring Challenge


A no coloring challenge? No Copics or Prismas? Well that is the challenge on the Riley and Company challenge blog this week. I think it actually took me longer to make a no coloring card than it takes me to make one where I have colored the image. Since all white was too much of a challenge for me, I decided to stamp Riley onto kraft card stock and then I stamped it again onto a blue piece of paper and then again onto a brown piece. That gave me a little color to work with. I paper pieced Riley's cookie and the mug he is holding. I used Cookie Riley. papers from making Memories, a Fiskars border punch and a flower and brad from my stash.

I am still hard at work on hubby's birthday gift! Our anniversary is next month, the week before Christmas so I am actually trying to work on things for that too. I can't wait to tell you what I am doing for the anniversary! I am having too much fun, but can't show it yet because I am afraid he might look around my blog looking for hints.

Have a great day!
