Ok, I think this is the final edition. Crayon resist, and ultra fine prisma glitter on tree. Swirled bordering blue watercolor for background - to look like our foggy days here in Germany. Tree stamped in garden green, watercolored with old olive and a bit of close to cocoa. Pine bough is 2nd generation (not huffed) in old olive. Thanks for the encouraging input on the earlier editions - my stampin' buddy neighbor moved recently and I'm without convienent feedback. You ladies are the greatest!

Thanks! To answer Jackie's question, "2nd generation" is the 2nd image you get without re-inking your stamp. It still matches, but the image is more muted. "Huffing" is when you gently blow warm breath to remoisten the stamp (like when you've colored the rubber with pens). If you do that with a 2nd generation impression it will make the color brighter. Every ink color will give a little different result, so I experiment a lot on scrap paper. I just learned about this myself, and have been very pleased with the versatility it gives.
Why did she make things? Well, she enjoyed it, of course; it also somehow helped her remember who she was and where she came from.
