I couldn't resist this sweet High Hopes image. It reminds me so much of my little guy, with the big feet, sloppy clothes, and a death grip on a frog! I colored with a combination of reinkers and watercolor pencils.
I used this week's sketch for inspiration. Thanks for the great challenge, and thank you all for looking!

The perfect combination! Frogs and Boys! I love this image and your coloring has definately done it justice! What a cuttie pattootie! Reinkers are a technique I have not used but I think I need to try it out.

Oh Darla, yeah he does remind me of a déja vu scene I've seen alot of times with two boys all grown up now. My first one would do that every summer, then 10 years later, he'd help my youngest son do the same thing all over again. Wish I could see them do that now. Precious card Darla. TFS
