Winnie the Pooh Watercolor?

Fall is my favorite time of year, not that I get anything even close to resembling Fall in SW Florida but my heart longs for it.  Whimsy Stamps new Falling Leaves stamp set can be used for Fall or for Spring but of course for my first post using this set I opted for Fall.  I love the "feel" of this card, it reminds me of Winnie the Pooh.

I used Canson water color paper and distress ink to water color a soft sky and grassy area.  Then I stamped the grass borders also in distress ink.  The tree, leaves and bench were stamped using SU! Early Espresso ink.  (Tip: SU! inks can also be used as watercolors if you don't have distress inks) 

After I stamped the images I used a damp paintbrush and lightly went over each image to soften them up.  I added a little color to the leaves and bench with Faber Castell watercolor pencils then used a damp brush to blend until I got the color and shadows I wanted.  I also re-stamped the grass under the bench a couple of times to give it some depth and more shadowing.  The grass images in this stamp set give you lots of versatility in building your scenes.   

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment and birds using SU! Espresso ink and matted onto an Early Espresso card base.  I really like how this card turned makes me feel good inside...I hope it makes you feel good too.
