What a wonderful Sketch Roxie...I did lengthen the panels a bit and put the right panel over the horizontal panel, but I hope that this is close enough.
Stamped the waterlily from Flourishes Waterlilies in Archival Sepia, then masked and added the pad in Wild Wasabi. Stamped the Koi in Memento Tuxedo Black and the swirl in Night of Navy after one stamp off. Watercolored the images with Twinkling H2Os. Added stickles to the center of the lily. Sponged the panel with Marina mist that painted over with more Twinkling H2Os. Ran an olive scrap through TH EFand matted, ran the marina panel through CB Koi EF after inking with Marina Mist. Ran the card through CB Branches EF, again after inking the folder. Inked the brads with Archival Brilliance Pearlescent Purple, then added Pearl-Ex and placed on the two panels. Mounted all and done.
Thank you so much for looking. Have a peaceful day.

Marie, what a wonderful use of EFs to create this beautiful pond scene. Instead of 3 separate panels, you created a "whole". Beautiful coloring of your waterlily and koi. The dragonflies are the perfect little accents.
