Free on the Plains

This is not your typical Father's Day card at all, but think Jim will like it.  Usually I give him something silly but since he likes stories of cowboys and Indians I thought this would be a better fit this year.

I used a couple of stamps from the Bold and Free set - Mark's Finest Papers.   The feather was stamped on Canson watercolor paper and then colored with the Zig Clean Color Brush markers - mixing some blues and greens.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends (use only the corner).

Thanks for stopping by........
