Just a notelet

This is a notelet I made when I needed to send a message into my son's school.  The papers are from a 6" x 6" K & Co pad 'hopscotch'.  The image is a Dustin Pike freebie.  I chose this image because my son's school has just started to raise quails and this is as near as I could get to a quail. (I also love Dustin's images and don't use them enough).  I have coloured the image with copic markers.  I'm still practising with shading, I'm more of a crafter than an artist.  Some people have a natural talent with colour, me I'm more of a paper person if you know what I mean.

Hope everyone has a good day and that the weather warms up.  I'm really fed up with this chilly weather and I don't mind cold.
