How do we color Riley?

How do we color Riley?  Let me count the ways! :)
 We have something fun for your today from Riley and Company!
We would like to show you all the ways our Design Team colors 
Riley the Moose!
He's being showcased colored on certain DT blogs with the different
coloring mediums that we all use.
Most of you know probably that I color my images with
Prismacolor Premium markers and LOVE LOVE LOVE them! 
 l know most of the universe colors with Copics :)
But I do so love my prismas so much, and I'm so pleased with the color spectrum they offer and their blending abilities.

For my card today,  I used Under the Tree Riley.
I use a variety of colors when I ink up Riley or Sophie.
Riley on my card today was colored with: 
*Pale Peach (PM11)  and Light Peach (PM12) for his cheeks/nose area,
*Sand (PM70) or Light Tan for the body,
*Mocha Dark (PM200), Walnut (PM90) and Light Umber (PM172)
 for the antlers and hooves.

Getting started :)
And my finished card!

I also wanted to remind you that we have a challenge on
the inspiration blog going on - make a monotone card!
Ink up your Riley/Sophie - even FunnyBones stamps
and play along with us ♥
Please be sure to head on over to the Riley and Company blog
for this special edition of Color Up Riley!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
