In the Country

Good afternoon, thanks for dropping by. What an awful Sunday it is, rain rattling on the roof and lights on just so you can see. Just the day for holing up in my craftroom and getting crafty. 
I am still without a computer and I am having to borrow my husband's work one. All my links and bookmarks have gone with the old computer so I can't find some of my new challenges. Never mind, it made me find some new ones! The only problem is finding pictures of my cards to enter as although I managed the last picture it was not the usual quality. 
I have been making a card for my son to give his dad on his birthday in a couple of weeks. 
I love the LOTV stamp 'In The Country' and it is just the right image for this card. I also recently found a Hobby Art stamp of Sheep in a field, so I decided to put them together and used the sketch from my last Sketch Saturday entry, plus a LOTV greeting. Hopefully I can download a picture unlike last night when I tried!

I coloured the image using Copics AS FOLLOWS
Skin:- E000,E00,E11, R11
Sky:- B000, B00, BG02, C1,C3, E50
Trees and fields:- YG 11, YG13, YG17, YG00, YG61, YG63,YG67, G99
House and wall :- E02,E09, E08, BV25, C3, C5, C7
Fence:- E42,E43,E47,E71,E77
The cap was stamped on patterned paper and edged in E71, E77
Coat :- E71, E77, E79
Jeans:-BG93, BG95, BG97
Dog:- E31, E33, E35
The backing papers were NitWits In the Meadow mounted on some craft paper and all edged in Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink.
The string was from the utility room and the tape from the stash.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:-
The Ribbon Girls:- Lili of the Valley, Anything goes
Sir Stampalot Challenge:- All Creatures Great and Small
The ABC Challenge:- W for words

Thanks for dropping by.
