The image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers then heat embossed with clear powder. The reflection was colored in with gray and beige tones. Using Naturals White cardstock, I sponged it to look as if it were sunset. I like this cardstock for the scene because it has slubs of texture and color, lacking the smoothness of Whisper White.
The remainder of the scene was sponged with dye inks. Using a tissue, I wiped the dye ink off of the embossed image. I purposely left the scene without background elements. The water was touched up with a white gel pen. The scene was then popped up with a rectangle of Fun Foam.
