Heartfelt Creations - Rustic Autumn Wheel PreCut Set

hi there (-:
love this Heartfelt Creations set for Autumn - have done this card several times but this time did it a little differently - NOT detailed coloring - ALL sponging!!
3327 Rustic Autumn Wheel PreCut Set
First stamped image in light tan onto white cardstock. Sponged areas of color using Memento’s Potter’s Clay and Vivid’s Butterscotch, Vintage Green, Tuscan Tan and Coffee Bean. Sponged these areas very heavily and in a few small areas used colored pencils and pencil blender (which actually ran..but I liked the effect!!)
Then stamped image onto vellum using Black Stazon. Lined up over image that was color sponged and adhered. Using Copics, highlighted grass and wood. Outlined areas with copic pen black.

Stamped sentiment and sponged lightly while still in nestie die. Added leaves punched with MS punch. Matted image onto black cs, using stash designer paper covered the corners, matted onto stash striped designer paper. Base cardstock is brown.

THIS is really neat IRL and took so much less time than detail Copic coloring...

have a blessed day!
