SC222 Riley Irons


I was tired this morning and thankful for the easy sketch challenge but….I decided to use some ribbon. I was quickly reminded why I never use ribbon. I tinkered with that knot forEVAH! Of course, now that I’m sitting here typing, I just realized what I should have done. Oh, well, there is always next time.

The tile floor was an image that was hand drawn by me and turned into a digital stamp. I simply colored every other tile with my Copics and added a little Prismacolor pencil shadows and its done.

To get everything to line up on this indoor scene, I cut a piece of Georgia Pacific 110 Cardstock to use as the base. I attached the DP and the floor to this base piece. Then I turned it over and marked my cut with a pencil. I then cut it out and I was ready to insert a layer of Pixie Pink cardstock and still have everything lined up.

Stamps: Hanna Stamps Laundry Riley
Paper: Pixie Pink, Basic Grey Urban Prairie, GP110
Ink:
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone, Certainly Celery Ribbon from SU, horizontal slot punch

Enjoy!

Ok I've drew and drew and drew and I can't get my floor to look anything like this. LOL I revered to taking a piece of scratch paper and actually tracing your card pattern on the computer screen. I'm a mess. How could I have forgotten how to draw a floor.
You've inspired me with your floor and I've got a cute idea for a card. Now off to tackle that floor again. :-)

Tammy sounds like me! LOL I've taken a photo of the window panes in my bay window and then tried to trace to get the perspective right! Desperation!

Your card is adorable! I didn't see a thing wrong with your ribbon! Your coloring /shadowing is amazing! I really like your style...so original!
