cowboy card and a freebie

I made a cowboy card for Steve for fathers day, we are both had horses when we were teenagers.  We had a lot of fun conversation around fathers day dinner - telling tales of the times we fell off the horses!  I used my Spectrum Noir Markers for coloring and Tim Holtz for distressing.  I also spent some time late last night looking for examples of creating depth in coloring.  I realize my Cowboy is pretty flat and I needed more time to make him a little dimensional. 

 Here is a link to a site where I found some great coloring tutorials:

I may try this image again to see how I do after spending some time studying - but right now it is time to go meet with the caterer, 4 more days till the wedding!

I'm leaving you with this great cowboy for you to give it a try too!
