Watercolor Hydrangeas

Autumn can't come soon enough for me.  I love crisp days, the smell of wood smoke in the air and the crunch of acorns underfoot.  But all the hydrangeas haven't faded yet.  One that's snowy white now will gradually turn the deepest pink you can imagine, just as all the trees in the neighborhood melt into shades of orange and red.

I absolutely LOVE my hydrangea stamp from Heroarts!  I often stamp it with brown and color with colored pencils, but I also like the effect of watercolor pencils.
