I made my card, using my new set, Gone Fishing, inspired by the movie, On Golden Pond. I saw that movie ages ago, when it first came out, but I still remember the gorgeous scenery and wishing I lived there.

To make my card, I started by stamping the dock, from Gone Fishing, on the lower left corner of a piece of white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored using Copics, starting with E49.
Blended out from there with E35.
Filled in with E51.
Next, I stamped the dock again, on scratch paper and cut it out. I adhered it over the dock I had colored, using re-positionable tape. Then I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink.
Sponged over the Cantaloupe with Memento Desert Sand ink.
Sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa, swiping it in farther at the center and creating some extra splotchiness to look like clouds.
Then I placed two Post-it Notes at the horizon line, as a mask and sponged a tiny bit more Rich Cocoa.
Removed the Post-it mask and stamped the trees on the left side with Rich Cocoa.
Added some shading to the trees and ground with E57.
Filled in the trees and blended out the ground with E53.
I decided I wanted a tree on the right side, too, so I stamped and colored that one the same way.
Removed the mask from the dock and stamped some grass, from Hang In There, along the bottom, with Rich Cocoa ink.
I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and Sweet Corn. My card base is Chocolate Brown.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll play along in the challenge. Have a great day!!!
