Mandarin Duck


This image is from Delicious Doodles.  I've had it a long time and never got around to using it.  I researched the coloring of a mandarin duck, although, I did take a few liberties with their placement.  I was amazed at how beautiful these animals are.  I initially bought the digi without knowing what the duck actually looked like.  Their coloring is just amazing, such bright colors.    


 I colored this image with Copic markers.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.

Copics:  BG0000, BG000, BG05, BG07, BG09, BG10, C00, C5, 100, E30, E31, E34, E97, E99, RV00, RV06, RV09, V01, V04, YR18
