Punched through the sticky part of two layers of post it notes with a 1 3/4″ punch.
Cut part of the circle off of the 2 layers.
Mask the sun in the sky with one of the sun mask and masked the bottom of the 3.5″ x 4.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock with another post it note.
Brayered Bashful Blue ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Taken with Teal ink at the top of the card stock, not covering the Bashful Blue ink entirely.
Brayered Pumpkin Pie ink at the post it note edge to add color to the horizon line.
Removed the sun mask and sponged Apricot Appeal in the sun area.
Removed the bottom mask and added the second sun mask in water area of the card stock, lining it up with the sun in the sky.
Masked the sky area of the card stock with a post it note.
Brayered Bashful Blue ink and Taken with Teal ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Removed the reflection sun mask and brayered more Bashful Blue and Taken with Teal ink to tone down the reflection.
Brayered Pumpkin pie ink at the post it note edge.
Sponged Taken with Teal ink at the post it note edge.
Moved the post it note mask so it was a bit below the horizon line and stamped the Branch image 3 times with Basic Black ink.
Turned the post it note mask so it is covering the sky area and stamped the branch on my stamp-a-ma-jig plastic with Bashful Blue ink and then turned it over and lined it up with the Basic Black images and rubbed the back of the plastic to transfer the image. This gives you a reverse image.
I did this three times.
Removed all of the post it note masks and put a couple of streaks of Bashful Blue marker at the base of the Basic Black images.
Added a few dashes in the water area with a white gel pen.
Added Apricot Appeal Ribbon, Tempting Turquoise ribbon and panels of Apricot Appeal, Close to Cocoa and Tempting Turquoise.
Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.
May you be warm and cozy where ever you are today.
