For this sponged card: sponge the sky down to nearly halfway. Mask & sponge the mountains in evergreen bough ink, moving the mask as needed for the distant hills.
Mask the water-line, swipe the blue ink pad straight across, ensuring the ink goes right down to the bottom.
Color with a deeper blue at the top of the waterline by swiping the ink pad at an angle.
Sponge the foreground in green, then in dark brown at the very bottom.
Stamp the tree and greeting. Add white gel pen highlights to the tree. Draw in the birds in the sky.
To finish: mat onto white card, score around the edges.
Layer onto a teal card, stamped with script background and several lines scored down one side edge. Doodle between the score lines with a white gel pen.
A CAS version of this weeks sketch challenge. I did delete one panel, hope thats ok.

Hi, Gallery Neighbor Cindy. I gasped when I saw my card in the gallery next to yours with the same color palette...each of us 1/2 way around the world from the other. Your card is beautiful with that sunset/sunrise scene. We must have been on the same wave length. : )

Goodness me Cindy! It's breathe-takingly beautiful. Your masked and stamped scene is just gorgeous. Makes me wish for warm breezes sitting on a beach right now. Stunning card! Thanks for creating a card using my sketch this week!
What a wonderful, serene mountain-lake scene. Love your coloring.
