Watercolor Trees

Hi there!  Well, I created just one card this weekend.  Which seems to be my norm this summer.  This summer seems to be particularly busy for us.  And, since I made changes to my lifestyle...eating healthy and lots of physical activity...I don't have as much time for crafting.  I'm loving it all though!

I spent some time this afternoon walking/hiking the trails at a local park.  The weather was beautiful and the company was great.  Thanks Trudy!

If you're interested, take a look at the end of this post for a few photos from my hike this afternoon.

Anyway, I created this card yesterday.  Just because.  No challenges involved. I just felt like using some watercolors.  So I did!

I painted the sky and ground first.  After those had dried I stamped the trees.  Before stamping the images onto the watercolor panel, I misted the stamp with water then stamped onto scrap paper first.  I love the soft look it gave me.  I'm loving using my watercolor set (just a cheap one from Michael's).   It's just plain FUN!
Thanks for stopping by!

Here are my photos from our afternoon hike.

These appear to be mini pincones, but they actually came from the tree pictured just below and in the very last photo.

Feathers.  I think this was a lunch spot for some kind of animal!
