Relaxing at the Lake-Copic Creations & Cute Card Thursday

Since I already had this set out, the papers out, and everything else out that I used yesterday, I thought I would put this card together. I thought that the image in the boat was pefect for the Copic Creations Challenge which is Reflections & that it would work perfectly with the Cute Card Thursday Sketch this week. I used my mirror image stamp and first stamped the boat which will be my reflection in the water, and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the image above the water so that I could line it up with the reflection. I then used my versa marker pen and carefully colored in the image that is above the water, put on Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed so that when I brayered over it, it would not pick up any of the color. I did not do this for the reflection image since it is in the water, it does not have to be crisp & clean. After I brayerd soft sky, & Baja Breeze over the entire image, I sponged on Not Quite Navy to give it a little depth. This was also inspired by a tutorial given by Michelle Zindorf quite some time ago and glad I remembered it.

Image: SU-Summer by the Sea.
Papers: SU: Blueberry Crisp, Sahara Sand, Not Quite Navy
Extras: Swirl Die Cut, MS Border Punch, Nellie Snellin Flower Punch, Rhinestones, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Distressed Stripes
Ink for Brayer: Soft Sky, Baja Breeze & Not Quite Navy
Copics: E00, B21,E23, E31,E33,C1,C3 I also pulled out a few of my colored pencils to add a little depth.
