Coffee and Cranes - Enjoy the little things

It's this time of year in Germany that the cranes starting to fly to their wintering grounds. Which means it will getting colder really soon. I love to watch them flying by in their perfect v-shape formation and listen to their cawing - it is such a reassuring sound. I'm always deeply touched and it reminds me to enjoy the little things in life.

So that was the inspiration for this card. Pix standing there with her hot beverage, looking into the sky watching the cranes flying by

You may have recognized that those bird shapes are no cranes ;) I believe they are ducks.
I stamped some with second and third generation stamping, to create more depth.

Pix is watercolored with various Distress Inks. Her to-go cup looks a bit like it has a leo-print, but I wanted to mimik those cups which have all-over coffee bean pattern :)

For the background I used a wash of Distress Inks onto wet paper to get a soft transition of the colors

Have an awesome day
