I began by using a 6x6 paper pad (Honey Bee Great Outdoors) for my masculine patterns. The background of the card was created by layering lots of mismatched patterns. I had stamped Riley several times (Versafine Onyx Black ink) on white cardstock (Hammermill Cover, Copy, Color) just to have him available for other card making sessions. I knew I would use color pencils (Prisma) and Mineral Spirits (Gamsol) to color him. Here's a link to working with this super cool and easy coloring technique.
