The first is for a Zen challenge on OSA -- Nature is truly what gets me feeling the most spiritual, and the closest I can come to the cessation of busy brain.
The second features the 3 traditional winter plants of Japan: Pine, Bamboo, and Plum.
All stamps by Art Neko. The Dream card was a little experimental: I cut a piece of manila folder, wet it down, scrunched it up in a ball, then laid it out and sprayed walnut ink on it and let it dry. I couldn't stamp on it as it was too uneven, so I took some white tissue paper and stamped on that w/Stazon, then glued it to the manila with Golden Matte Gel Medium. I then brushed over it with various Pearl Ex colors, and added a brad.
The 2nd card was stamped in black and embossed in clear on watercolor paper, then colored with a paintbrush and a crayon watercolor solution.
