Sorry I have been missing in action recently! It's been super busy with the closing of our regular season and tomorrow is our last home game. It's been a very special year for me and this has been my favorite team ever. I wanted to thank them by making a special little card for them and writing a little note....all FORTY FIVE of them!!! So as you can see, I've been very busy coloring baseball Rileys! Here it is mid-process
Let's just say I was exhausted and so was my copic E33. I modified the image a little bit to give it more of a jersey like feel and the appearance of sleeves. Then colored in the bats exactly like the ones my guys use. Picture for reference....
This is W, he's a Cajun. His Aunt gave me the best jambalaya recipe.
The best way to tackle all those cards was to make a sort of an assembly line. I used Sure Cuts a Lot and Inkscape to create the South Alabama logo and their numbers to customize each card. They were matted on grey and navy cardstock with the grey background watermarked with a baseball stamp and versamark ink pad. Some of the moose even got eyeblack to match their respective recipient!
Here's a little closeup of a card and placed in their lockers.
I also made 50 red velvet baseball cupcakes and places them in boxes that used to hold baseballs. They're ingenious for transporting cupcakes!
Well now you know where I've been for the past week!
Tune in tomorrow for a sneak peek of the upcoming Riley Stamp Release!!! I can't believe it's already upon us!!!
