Water Maiden

I've had a nightmare weekend with no internet connection, so I've got a mad dash to publish this in time (hopefully!)
My card today is for four challenges

The first is Paper Craft Crew with this sketch, 

second is Pals Paper Arts with these colours,

third is Stampin' Royalty with ANYTHING GOES,

and lastly, Addicted to Stamps with MAKE YOUR MARK

Here is my card

The image was stamped in black Archival ink and coloured with Write Markers and an Aqua Painter. A Post It was then placed over the woman in the boat so that the sky could be sponged behind her, and water painted under her. Some reeds were stamped on the waters edge, and the reflections were softened in the water with an Aqua Painter. Some red and blue were also added in the water under the woman's toes. The scene was cut with a Nestie and laid on embossed brown and blue cards with 3D pads. The finishing touches were the ribbon, sentiment, and stamped dragonfly.

Supplies :
Card = Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Real Red, Blue and white base FMS
Stamps = Summer by the Sea, Organic Grace, Pocket Silhouettes, and Cute Companions
Inks = Archival, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, and Crumb Cake
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Post Its, Aqua Painter, and Fancy Fan EF
Extras = Ribbon and 3D Pads

I hope you enjoyed the weekend where ever you are, and I'll be back soon
