Hanna Stamps Friday SCS Challenge

Today over at the Hanna Stamps SCS Forum a new Friday challenge has just started. Frances has given us the below great sketch to follow.

I've had this cute Laundry Riley for a little while now and thought it was about time I inked him up! The dp used on my card is DCWV Citrus. I chalked around the sentiment and also the image in co-ordinating VersaMagic chalks. My sentiment was printed direct onto my dp from Word. Riley is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending.

A nice short post this evening ;-) It's been a busy week with the girls being on half term but I will be attacking my google reader this evening and looking forward to seeing what you have created. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and I hope it's sunny where you are! My girls are hoping it's beautiful again tomorrow so they can get their paddling pool out.

See you Sunday for the next High Hopes challenge.
