Cock A Doodle Doo

I did not have a good photography day today.  I am starting to have major camera problems.  I think my camera is on it's last legs.  Time for a new one.  Unfortunately, we just had to buy a mattress and box spring, a new transmission, a refrigerator and a  battery for my car.  A new camera is not something I want to buy right now.  Actually, I do want to buy it, but my common sense is telling me to wait a while in case something else major goes.

I photographed this out at the woodpile.  The lighting was not real good because I photographed it at dusk.  I think that's why it's a tad blurry.  At least it didn't blow away this time.

I made this card for Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge #72 which is a recipe challenge.  It requires one ribbon, two papers and three buttons.  The image is from Digi Doodle Shop. I saw a picture of a rooster online with somewhat this coloring.  I wasn't able to duplicate it exactly.  I colored it with Copics.  The papers are from Graphic 45 and October Afternoon.  They happen to be two of my favorite companies for DP.

Copics:  B00, BG0000, BG07, BG10, BG13, E08, E09, E31,E50,E55, R14, R24, R37,W9, Y21,Y23.YR12, YR14, YR31

Those papers have the perfect country feel to them. You did a great job with the coloring. like how you put the blue shadow around the whole image....looks like a pre-colored digi!
I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that has cards fly away on them while photographing them!! Hubby decided to make me a card holder the other day since I was struggling so much and the wind was winning!
