Stamp 332 Penny Black

Another rummage purchase.  I love the soft look of this image.  It worked so well for the water color challenge over at Simon Says  I wanted to depict our beautiful blue Wisconsin skies and that wind that just blows all the leaves around.   It’s the perfect image for this time of year. I used distress inks for everything.  A light color wash on the watercolor paper in blue and then I colored direct to the stamp and spritzed.  I stamped off once on scrap paper to lower the intensity a bit.  This seemed like it needed a frame so I dug out one of the old old old FIskars corner punches.
