Twinkle Twinkle Little Riley!

Today's sneak peek is a sweet one in soooo many ways!!

'B is for Baby' is just one of the new sets being released this Friday (or late Thursday night if you HAVE to HAVE your hands on it!) at Hanna Stamps!

When Kristi sent me this stamp set I was so excited because the images in it are so sweet and darling! Originally, when I was brainstorming ideas for this card, I was envisioning lots of pink and yellow colors, but when I found this patterned paper in my stash, all that went out the window! Isn't it perfect?! I think I squealed when I found it!

I stamped the image on my watercolor paper twice - one for the main image and one for cutting out the little shapes. The image was watercolored with my SU inks and my aquapainter and then the individual pieces were cut out and added to the main image with dimensionals. The background was sponged and I added some stickles to the edges of the main image as well as the cute mobile characters. The KI 'icicle' letters are something I've had in my stash of goodies for a while now. Even though they're big letters, their translucency helps them blend in with the image. I'm going to have to see if my LSS still carries them - because I now want more!

My second sneak peek for you today features our favorite Moose, Riley! I wonder if Sophie gave him those chocolates? Or were they meant for Sophie?! Oh dear!

This is a quick layout but why do anything else when you have chocolate and a Riley together on the same card?! As usual, I colored with SU inks on watercolor paper and then added some stickles for some SPARKLE! :D
