Card Details:
Stamps: Rebecca and sentiment from Repeat Impressions
Paper: Water color paper, Kraft
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon, various greens and browns for sponging
Misc: SU markers, cloud template, pearls, aquapainter, wood grain
impressions plate from PTI

I stamped the image in the Timber Brown Stazon....then colored
it with SU markers and used my aquapainter to get it a little wet.
I then used a tissue to dab off some of the color.
I drew the tall grass with a marker and then sponged on various
shades of green and brown to get the dirt/grass effect.
The sky was sponged using a cloud template from my LSS.
It is sponged on using bashful blue ink.

Thanks for stopping by!
