Cuddly Buddly Lilyboo Designs Swimming Ducks

I have a fun card to share with you today!

I've been looking at these ducks at Cuddly Buddly and so wanting to color them, they've been calling to me!
This is a digital image called Swimming Ducks I colored with Copic markers:

Water - BG0000, BG10, BG11, BG23
Baby Ducks - Y06, Y18, Y19, W0
Grass - YG21, YG23, YG67
Sky/Outline - B60, B63
Mama Duck - BG10, BG11, Y06, Y18, Y19

I colored the water for this image first because I was unsure of using the blue greens, I like it!  Next was the ducks, I find it amazing that I can color a "white" duck using blue greens.  I used the blue greens on her white feathers to reflect the water.  I hadn't decided on what color the sky should be, I thought blues might look funny with the blue greens so I picked B60 & B63 because they look purple.  I like the way that color combination turned out too.  As an after thought I added reflections of the ducks and grass in the water, very fun!  The reflection of the white duck is my White Gel Pen.

The cardstock colors are Hero Arts Bayou & Hyacinth and Astrobrights Solar Yellow as well as Copic X Press It and Mohawk Bright White.
