Clarabelle & Riley

No internet service when I woke up. UURRRGGG, so I could not see the SC for today. I wanted to stamp before work so I did another COLOR CHALLENGE. Needed to dirty up some new stamps anyway. This is an adorable image from High Hopes called Clarabelle & Riley. Stamped w/Black Stazon and colored w/Prisma Color Pencils then blended w/Gamsol and matted on real red. The background is called "Cow Spots Background" and stamped in black then matted on black. A thin red ribbon tied on the right then red ribbon knot and Taken w/teal and certainly celery paper knots (since I did not have any ribbon those colors had to sub).
This faux ribbon knot was something I learned from e3stamper (thanks Shannon). Trim a thin strip of card stock and run it between your fingernails or rub on edge of desk to make it more pliable, then tie in a knot using care when tightening. I love using this when I do not have the exact color matches.
