A Coloring Challenge for Me

Hello everyone - I hope you had a fabulous weekend - here in Canada we had an extra day off yesterday so it was very nice.  This weekend we reached some very hot temperatures so in the afternoons I was more than happy to be in my craft room where it was a bit cooler.  I bought this adorable Whimsy stamp called "Little Jack and Bobbin Snoozin" - it just gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling when I saw it and then once I stamped it out I realized that there is a lot to color.  It took me a few practice rounds as I am not that good with my copic markers yet and I did finally finish this image and was fairly happy with the results.  I also actually kept a list of the colors I used you can see the list below.  This card is mainly coloring except for the SU corner punch and brad I used and the sentiment is also a Whimsy stamp.  I did add some twine on the fishing rod to make it look a bit more realistic.  You will note there is a dog in this image as well and if you follow my blog you will know that I love most any image that has a cute dog in it - another reason for buying this stamp - lol!  Well it is back to work for me today but thankfully a short week so I am happy about that.  I hope you have a wonderful day where-ever you might be and thank you for stopping by for a visit.
