My dear friend Gillian lost her dad and I am sent this to her. I had colored the image a long time ago. It was a gift from a friend and I had it on my magnetic board for a while. I finally decided that it was the right time to use it. No fancy techniques here though. The flower in the background is one I have used a lot. I think it is from Stampendous but I am not going down to my room to find it. The little girl is a Sugar Nellie stamp. The words are an old retired set from Close to my Heart that I got at a garage sale years ago. As for the coloring, I did my usual with this . Mostly colored pencils with oderless mineral spirits but Copics for the skin.
