Today we are to use blues & browns for the Free For All Challenge(F4A155) on Splitcoast! This is one of those cards I had sitting on my desktop and didn’t upload to SCS for some unknown reason. Since the colors fit, I figured better late than never!

For my Autumn Lake View card,  I started by stamping the image onto watercolor paper. I used a combination of markers and reinkers to color it. With a paintbrush, I filled in a lake area and some ground around the tree. I stamped a few grassy elements along the ground and used the Micron pen to sketch out the ground, water edge and hill areas. Markers were used to add some fall foliage on the far side of the lake and little blue was added to the sky. I used a lg square Spellbinders die and resized it to cut out the white frame.  A very thin black mat was added behind the frame before attaching to my scene. Finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. How pretty – it looks real! Love the detailing touch with the Micron pen. Very cool card!

  2. Love the way you did the bark on the tree. It’s the most realistic tree I’ve seen. Great job!
