I have fond memories of fields with cattails and red-winged blackbirds from my childhood. These memories and the sketch at I Spy Sketches prompted me to create this card. I began by using a white card base and a white strip of cardstock and chalked the sky with blue. To create clouds, I used an eraser to remove some of the blue chalk. Using the Stampin' Up's Nature stamp and green ink I stamped the grasses. I added in the cattail detail with Bic Markers and colored pencils. I also added in some blackbirds with the same markers. I attached the cattail strip to a piece of Core'dinations Pure Chocolate cardstock and added a horizontal strip. I adhered this to the cloud covered card base after I added mountains created from a piece of green scrap that I inked and crinkled. This was an interesting sketch to work with and I found myself thinking about other possibilities.
