Aloha....It's another Riley Card!

Aloha, y'all! Sorry I have not been around lately. My in-laws are in town and we just got back from a few days at Disney World and then the beach. We went to see Ice Age 3 today - so cute. We really enjoyed it.

I ordered some new Riley's before the contest ended, but they did not quite get here in time, but I still could not wait to use them. This is Hula Sophie. She is adorable in her grass skirt!
I have a new {favorite} copic color combo for coloring Riley & Sophie - E30, E35 and E37! It gives them a nice little tan! The sentiment is from Eclectic Paperie's Hangin' with Kona - they work perfect with the 'beachy' Riley stamps. I am trying to use up SU DP that is retiring - I used Hawaii Papaya DP along with Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Gina K. 80# PL cardstock. I also used Tangerine ribbon, linen thread, EK Success wavy border punch, nesties, buttons and primas. The background was created with my Copic Airbrush system.
Here is a close-up of this "Hula Hottie".

Here are the copics I used.


Here is my 2nd post for today using Surfer Riley.
I got this color scheme from a pair of patchwork surfer style shorts my son has from Gymboree. They are from last year's line, so I do not have a picture. I used Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Blue Bayou. The sentiment is another one from the eP Kona set. For texture, I used 4 different CB embossing folders. Riley was colored, cut out and then popped-up on top of the background, which was created using my airbrush system and a mask. I added some stickles to the wave and some Olive twill to the tag.

Here is a close-up of Riley in his cute trunks!

Here are the copics I used.

Hope you are having a great summer so far! It has been pretty hot in N. FL so far!
