Footprints - Watercoloring

I got this stamp set for Christmas and had not used it yet and was so excited to be able to use it today!  I would love to create a canvas with it and that is one of the reasons for purchasing it, but have not gotten around to that as of yet.  With this one, I was inspired by the shining the light challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog which was to create a card or project using three items, tools or embellishments beginning with three of the letters in the word "W-I-N-T-E-R-" So mine was W-Watercolor, I-Ink, N-New Stamp Set, T-tearing.  And, it was so easy to do!  I was so excited when it was finished.

Here is a close up of the words and the tearing and sponging!

Here is the inside of the card!

And a close up of the poem, Footprints!

Decided since I had started the tearing and sponging on the outside, I would continue on the inside!

Thanks so much for looking today and hope you have a great day!

Stamp Set: ODBD Footprints in the Sand
