The moose are on the loose & the frenzy has begun! I think that it's awesome that she sells the Rileys either mounted on a wood block ($6.95 each) or unmounted ($3.99) each. It makes them so affordable for everyone's budget! I got the unmounted ones, and all I do is put a little bit of hermafix dotto adhesive on the back of the rubber and stick them onto my acrylic block..the adhesive rubs right off. So don't be afraid to get the unmounteds if you *need* more than one Riley!
Tonite I played with the tractor Riley & bikini Sophie G...I had this image in my head of Sophie running out in her hottie little bikini to say Happy Birthday, Riley Dear (Marilyn Monroe style). So I used the play on words and misspelled Deere on purpose, since Riley's riding the green tractor. (I know it's a stretch...bare with me). AAAAAAACK. BAD JOKE.
When I've been coloring in my Riley's I've been using Copic Marker E33(Sand) for the bodies, and E57 (Light Walnut) for the hooves and antlers. On this card I drew clothes on Riley, to make it look like he's wearing jeans and a shirt. Can't have him riding the J.D. nekkid, now, can we? This is a G rated blog!
I also paired up Tractor Riley with the saying "Sow the seeds of love", from the "Things Hanna would Say" set. I thought it would be a great card to give to a farmer hubby or a son, who's been working hard out in the field all day to help out his family. I drew in the little messy rows in the field and seeds in the rows with a Copic Multiliner, then colored it in in with Brick Beige & light walnut Copics.
Hope everyone is having a great evening!
