Farm Scene Art Journal Page

Hello stampers! It's is a new month, and I can't believe it is already August. This month our challenge theme at Craft a Scene is to add a 4-legged animal to a scene.
I wanted to work in my art journal and decided to do a page in memory of my grandmother. She stayed on the countryside and we used to go for many walks with her in the forests and across fields, sometimes fields with cows. She was a little cautious of the cows. I did all the stamping with Archival Ink Potting Soil. The grass texture and some of the trees are stamped with second generation stamping to get a lighter impression. All the stamps are from Stampscapes.
The scene was inked with brown shades of Distress Ink and splattered with some Walnut Stain ink for extra texture.
The placement of the cows took a bit of planning, to get the proportions right.

The Lakeside Reflections stamp has water reflections in the front, you can easily turn it into a meadow stamp by wiping off the ink from the reflections before stamping.

And a sentiment that I am pretty sure that my grandmother would have liked.
Thank you for looking! I hope you will join us in the challenge this month.
Happy stamping!
