hey dude!

I {heart} Kim Hughes and all of her adorably fun images! I realized how long it had been since I'd inked up any of my KH images and chose this hilarious frog prince and sentiment from her Little Guy set and matched it up with this week's sketch challenge over at Splitcoast (SC246). It's a great sketch, one that I'll be using again and again!

The legs and belly of mr. frog are paper pieced using scraps of Ripe Avocado (PTI) and retired Kiwi Kiss (SU!). To give his belly a little depth and blend the two greens, I sponged around his belly (a sponge bath of sorts, ha!) with my PTI Vintage Touch inking system, using the darker of the two inks. His eyes and crown are colored in with watercolor pencils with bits of a Stardust Gelly Roll pen on his crown tips and toes. Although it's hard to see, the Kiwi layer is dry embossed with an argyle-like plate, the same one I used on my TCP Tuesday card posted yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by today, it was great having you!
