Chocolate Therapy

Chocolate does solve everything, doesn't it? To me, it looks like Riley had a rough day and it making everything feel better with a box of chocolates. This sketch is from the challenge in the Hanna Stamps forum on SCS last week. I decided to use Sofa Riley and create a little living room for him to hang out in, eating his yummy chocolate. I started by making a wall by picking out my "wallpaper" and added that to a piece of white paper that was about an inch of white space left at the bottom and then drew and colored my hardwood floor. Riley was colored with Copic and Prisma markers and then cut out. He is attached with foam dots. I stamped and extra and only colored the candy box and lid, cut them out and used some thin foam dots to attach them. The sentiment is handwritten and punched out with the SU Word Window punch. I added some ribbon and flowers and called it done! I am happy to say that all items came from my stash, and I am getting an early start on my self challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
