I colored the images with Copic markers. I love these babies---especially for blending various colors. I use to get so frustrated with watercoloring various fall colors onto leaves as watercoloring just wasn't as vivid or didn't blend well. I sponged my sky using a dauber and post-it note cloud template. I also sponged True Thyme lightly around the ground area so as to tone down the white of the cardstock for blending in with the colors of fall.
