On the farm

Good afternoon everyone.
The sun is shining, but it's very windy, good for the washing if I can keep it on the line!
Just a quick post as it's nearly dinnertime. Al has gone to feed the sheep as he didn't finish it all first thing as he had Max with him. The ewes don't like Max and try to mob him, poor thing.

I have had this card on the go all weekend but was at a loss as to how to finish it off. Finding the correct papers is sometimes a real pain, but having scanned through my NitWits collection I found some that went together.

The impetus for this design was the challenge over at Crafty Little Fairies - Down on the Farm. The layout was inspired by Sketch n Stash #135, I flipped the sketch 180 for the card.

I stamped the tractor then masked it off to stamp the image of the little boy over the top, both images are from Molly Bloom. I used my favourite Copics to colour as follows:-

Tractor - C0, 3,5,7,10, BV23,25,29,Y15,17, 100
Hair - E41,42,44
T Shirt - R35,37,39, C3,0
Cap - B12,14,18,C0,3,5,R35,37,39
Skin -E000,00,11,13
Gravel - W0,3,5,7,E71

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
Crafty Little Fairies - Down on the Farm
ATSM - Make your mark
As you like it Challenge - favourite colouring medium- I just love colouring and you get much better results with Copics than any other media I have used

Have a good rest of the day and thanks for popping by.
