The Weiman Wranglers

DSCF4465

If you visited the Color Throwdown blog yesterday, you might have seen an extra card that Tammy made using the digital Weiman Wrangler images.  You can read all about the Ethan Weiman story here, and I hope you will participate!  There are also lots more really neat cards and creations---much more imaginative than these!

I did these pretty late in the evening, so as usual, I made them rather simple.  I did use my limited supply of Copics, and they are so easy to color with!  I just don't have all the shades, or am very good at shading, yet.  It is just a different feel than with watercoloring.  But I am learning!  Here they are separately:

I also used the paisley image from Wanted as a background for both cards.  The great thing about digital images is that you can shrink or enlarge them to the size you want, and you always get a good clear image!  I didn't have any trouble with the ink running with the Copics, either.  I did see one in the gallery of Ava, and she had glitter running down the side of her little pink cowgirl pants.....so cute!!!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the Pink Cat store and help out a good cause.

I like your simple cowboy cards. The colors are so happy and bright. The card just looks great, not a lot more needs to be said about it.

Love both your cowboy and cowgirl! The CAS look is always so appealing to me :O) Your coloring is fab and love how you added the sentiments on both cards...to include the lasso!! Super adorable! Thanks so much for helping to promote the fundraiser.
