As I mentioned yesterday, I walk my younger daughter to school and back every day. On the way home after dropping her off, I often see little extra bits of nature. It is not surprising that I see more alone, than I do with dd--for I am able to be a bit more quiet than she can be.
These stamps REALLY remind me of the field that we walk next to right before we get to her school (or when I come out from dropping her off). So this card was inspired by the field--and the grayer days we have been having this week.
I kind of broke a stamping *rule* with this card. Normally I use a waterproof ink to stamp the images that I am going to watercolor. But with this card, I colored the stamp with water-based ink and then carefully watercolored some of the areas. I love the subtle look this gives.
So if you have a moment, take a walk outside--even just to get the mail. Enjoy the sounds and sights of the day.
