Planter PigWit

I am playing in this week's Clean And Simple Cards Challenge
  CAS379 May Flowers over at Splitcoaststampers.  I've had this cutie Hamlet PigWit In The Planter by From The Heart Stamps printed up for awhile but just had no time to color him up.  So today's challenge was the time!  He makes me smile.

I used Copics to color up my piggie.  
I wanted a soft color look so I used the one marker technique.  For each color I used one marker by coloring in the entire area I was coloring, let it dry and come back with my shading and repeated til I was satisfied.  Then I did come back with a gray for a deeper shadow except on the barrel and shadow for the barrel on the grass I used more grays to get the deep shadow I wanted.
Pig = E000, C1
Barrel = N0, C1, C3, C5
Grass = YG21, C3, C5 (grays just at base of barrel)
Flowers = R20, B000, YR02, V000, C3
Leaf = YG21, C3
Butterflies = Y21, C3

This card is also for From The Heart Stamps


And for MarkerPop's Biweekly Challenge
