Man Flu season

Morning all - there seems to be lots of bug and germs going around at the minute and so far (touch wood ) I have avoided getting any illness.
But I have picked up Man flu from Dr Digi (see what I did there??) and had great fun colouring him and paper piecing on him. I kept the image really big - filling almost half the a4 sheet and kept it as an A5 card.

This is how the image starts off - printed out twice - once onto the plain card to be coloured in with the Promarkers and printed the same size onto the patterned paper. I then cut out the areas of the duvet that I glued onto the coloured image. I did use some Warm Grey 1 & 3 to add some shading on to the patterned duvet also.
The background paper is from Mambi and I used a corner punch to take the edges off the bottom section. The duvet paper is from My Favourite things and the letters are from Doodlebug. Once the image was completed I cut around the entire thing and stuck it to my base card with 3d foam.

I used these promarkers and flex markers to colour him in -
Skin - Usual
Bed & Drawers -Caramel, Cinnamon, Henna & Walnut
Socks & Top - Red Poppy & Burgundy
Medicine and soup - Apple & Pine
Medicine and drink - Orange & Bright Orange
Warm greys 1 to 5 for shading.
I also used a little silver pen on the spoon and thermometer, along with some powder blue to add shading to the white areas.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
