Have a Wonderful Day!

This image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  The shop is no longer in business.  They had the most wonderful, realistic animal images.  Fortunately, I was able to get most of them before the shop closed.  

This image is colored with Copics.  The papers are from October Afternoon.  I cut the chicken wire and the wheat with my Silhouette.  

One thing I have noticed about the Silhouette that I really dislike is the quality of the mats.  I was able to use my Cricut mats for a long time.  I find that the Silhouette mats are destroyed extremely quickly, which runs into a lot of money.  Of course, the Silhouette itself is immensely better than the Cricut.  I may try a Cricut mat in it to see if it works,

Copics:  BG05, BG07, BG09, BG18, 
C00, C0, C2, C3, C4, C6, C7, 
E30, E33, E36, N3, R36, R37, R39, 
Y17, Y19, Y38,  YR14, YR16
