Nuance of Summer

What does summer mean to me?
For me, it is hiking in the woods where you can beat the heat under the shady canopy of trees.
It's cooling off by strolling along the creek looking for rocks to stack.
It's sitting on your balcony at night watching the lightening bugs display their own special light show.

Used the Tombow markers to color the trees on the stamp, then spritz with water for watercolor effect. I used a fan brush to add splatz of color with my watercolors.
