Riley and Company Challenge--Make a Scene

No, not that kind of scene!!! LOL.  I am the hostess this week for the Riley and Company Challenge.  I love to create little scenes with this darling little Moose, so that was the theme I chose.  With school having just started here in Omaha, and the rest of you probably getting ready, here is Schoolgirl Sophie:

Sophie is headed into Moose School for her first day of school and isn't she just the cutest with her little pink outfit and antler ribbons. 

The brick wall is from Riley and Company also, just used my Copic multi liner pen to finish the ends. The same pen was used to draw in the landscape, sidewalk and step.  There is a reason I only color LOL!!  The image was colored with copic markers.  Just a tip on the brick wall,  the wide tip of the copic markers is the perfect size to make a swipe on each brick in an alternating pattern to give the effect of a brick wall.  I used 5 different copics E40, E50, E53 and E31 and E33 to color the brick wall.  Really makes fast work of a brick wall. 

In keeping with the School Theme I added letters and numbers to the right side of the image, which had been cut out with my Top Note Sizzix Die cut from SU.  The red rickrack border on the left side ties in the red letters some.  A paper prima flower with red button center and Sophie is off for her first day of school!!!

We would love to have you play along with the challenge and if you download your project to a gallery use the keyword Riley1610  so we can all see your wonderful creation.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects for the challenge.
