Lake Reflections~

 Trees and Lake was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia and clear embossed on white card stock.   I started in the center and and sponged Memento Cantaloupe in a circle in the sky line as well as the lake.  Followed by Dandelion and Angel Pink.   Starting from the outer edges, sponge Summer Sky and then Danube Blue just around the edges.  This image really is just under 5 minutes to create. 
I framed it with the largest frame from the Rectangle 6 In 1 Frames DIE242-YY.  Embossed Hugs and Prayers A9735 with Vintage Sepia on a tag from the Min Square Tags Die Set DIE011-J and attached it with Burlap Twine.
