Magnolia Feel better soon

I was working with this sweet image from Magnolia today. I have another matching project that goes with it, but didn't have time to finish it so I will have to show you tomorrow. I Finally realized why the pictures seemed overexposed recently and have since rectified the problem. So today it looks truer to life.
stamps: Magnolia, SU Baroque Motifs, Hand sketched Kleenex and bottle on its side.
ink: Stewart Superior Black, SU Night of Navy
Paper: Cosmo Cricket DP, Real Red, Brown CS, Stamper Select White
Other: Prismacolor and Faber Castel color pencils, Twinkling H2O's, Quickutz thought bubble, Nestabilities, ribbon, Prima flowers and leaves, Dollar store brad, Spica glitter pen, AIG blue glitter,
This was a fun image to color. I did him first with the color pencils and then went over with Twinkling H2O's to deepen the shadows. I sketched out, colored and cut the two extra pieces then adhered them. The rest is pretty easy. Have a great Friday! I know I will.

Sorry that I didnt explain in my post what a dingbat is. It's a font that you could find on your computer, but instead of letters when you type, they come out as pictures. (great fun!)
have a great weekend!
