I got so excited, and since I have been learning sunsets with a sponge, cause I not very adept with the brayer...yet... I sponged a sunset on blush CS, which I did first...and it worked, For the Background, I stamped with sanded and weathered bg stamps, and inked the wood EF on the smooth side, and ran it through my Cuttle bug, then swiped Chocolate chip down it, and expresso and some black, Turned out real nice, I sponged a little yellow on the grass to make it glow from the sun...

Aaaaack! HOLY SCHMOKES and Yee-Haw! Jan, your brayer is magic on this. Oooo....wait til Da Muddah sees this! Jan, the textured background looks so ruggedly handsome! (Oooo, I 'm gonna taunt Pamzi with this too! She's in trouble with her IRL man, ya know!)
Beautiful work- I cannot wait to see what else you can do! Gawgus! (That's "Texan" for gorgeous!) lol! Hugs....

I am with you on da man - SU! should bring him back - they could change him a bit or have an anniversary special edition and charge more or somethin'. You did a fabulous job with this image - beautiful! I am impressed with your sponging and computer skills! He looks good!

Jan, wow, you went to a lot of effort to make this manly cowboy card. Sadly, in my 1st Christmas upload of this hunk of burnin' love, I made him wear Christmas colors, so he doesn't look as rough and tough as yours. Love all the special techniques you used. What a magnifico job. Now, you do know Pat sent me all the "real" cowboys, so yours is an imitation, but honey he looks SO REAL to me!! LOL!! TFS!

Whoo Hoo! Wowza!!! This is so awesome! This image sure lends itself to that cuttlebug texture and your sponging! This is beautiful! He looks just the part in your wonderful surroundings of rough and touch texture and color! Whoo hoo!
You did really, really good on your first attempt! Beautiful!
