Know all those FRNs I've been saving by not spending...I gave them to my son for his birthday. LOL. I created a money holder like the ones from the bank to hold the FRN.
I used colors from the color challenge, CC332 - I think it was Pool Party with Wasabi Chips?...that means...Pool Party, Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi...all colors I LOVE. Fishing Riley...purchased when the boy was in Scouts...never thought I would use it because he and his Daddy were going fishing at least once a week this month! WOW! Heck...I didn't think my husband was gonna go fishing. I'm still in shock. But it's a good shock. LOL
The longer Riley sits there, the better he looks.
I colored him with SU! Markers, I sold my Copics. Michelle Zindorf does a wonderful job showing ways to use the SU! Markers for shading. My marker storage system helps greatly with determining colors to use for shading. I made a note to share that in a future blog post.
One FRN by the name of Benjamin Franklin was inside.
I think this is the first time I've used that fishing pole stamp. I purchased it off E-bay in a "lot" of stamps.
HOW TO: I found the tutorial here: Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie. It's pretty straightforward. Pool Party panel is 8.5 x 6.5; scored at 3.25 & 6.5. The Chocolate Chip panel is 6 5/8 x 3 3/8.
It's a nice sturdy money holder...Mom suggested I do up some to hold the gift cards at Christmas time.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a moo'valous day!
