ECO watercolour fairie quote

I chose to do this quote from Peter Pan by JM Barrie for a baby gift, and being a lover of fairies (who isn't!) I went for a light-hearted colourful look.

After sketching the rough out, I found
in my paper stash a colourful scrapbook paper with a splashy watercolour design to use as a background border.
I chose ECO liquid watercolours
to match it.
The colours for the bouncy "laughed" was dropped in with a brush.
To get the bleed on "and they all went skipping about" I used a pointed nib and with a multitude of brushes handy continuously fed the nib with a different colour, occasionally dabbing a paper towel when the nib got too full.
