Through the rushes

I could say this is my last scenic post for now but it probably isn’t! It is the last one I have on hand but I’m sure there will be more soon, especially as I start using these stamps with autumn tones. I woke up to a cool morning today, the first time in a week; summer isn’t over but there are hints of changes to come

This one is definitely a summer by the lake scene. I watercoloured the sky first with salty ocean and scattered straw ink (technique shown here). Once that was dry I stamped the mountains in a combination of rustic wilderness, mowed lawn and rusty hinge inks. I added the rushes in the foreground stamped in rustic wilderness, rusty hinge and ground espresso.

Hope you have a happy weekend, maybe with time to relax and contemplate a pretty outlook like this one.

    Another wonderful scene with lots of light and the sky is beautiful with the late day sun shining across the water and again the pretty bulrushes framing the front of the scene, brilliantly watercoloured as always Heather. x
