Peaceful Lake

Water coloring on a handmade card is always perfect. There are no mistakes. You get what you get. Plus, the card is made with love. So, the result is always classified as a work of art.

   Moon Lake

   Soft Sky A-2
   Kraft 5 1/4 x 4
   Watercolor 3 3/4 x 5

   Chocolate Chip
   Early Espresso
   Daffodil Delight
   Soft Sky
   Garden Green
   Pacific Point
   StazOn Black


   Aqua Pen, Adhesive

I began by stamping my image with Black StazOn ink. I then added Soft Sky to the top for the sky coverage. Next, I added Early Espresso to the tree trunk and the outline of the canoe. I took a bit of Chocolate Chip to lighten the canoe. The tree canopy and grass were colored with Garden Green. The lake was filled in with Pacific Point. I then decided to add some Daffodil Delight to the sky. This really helped to differentiate the sky and the lake. I then stamped my sentiment and then adhered the layers to the card base.

I always work with a paper towel in case I use too much water or the ink is too dark. 

Thank you so much for stopping by here. I appreciate your time and feedback.
