Today I want to share with you a easel card that features a beautiful mountain scene from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3526 - Natural Beauty PreCut Set that I colored with Copics. 
To capture the reflection of the mountains in the water, I then turned the image upside down and colored the mountains identically only in a shade lighter of Copics and then after it was completely dry, I took my B10 (Note:  make sure your B10 is very wet) and with the broad end I took long single strokes over the scene to make it look like water.   I then went back and added a few highlights on the trees and mountains in the reflection where needed.  I was very happy with how this technique turned out.

I matted the scene on Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Window Die and used Psalm 19:1 from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3312 - Uplifting Scriptures PreCut Set matted on Bazzill paper die cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles.  To finish the card I added The Robin's Nest Dew Drops in Goldenberry.
Have a good Memorial Day weekend!
