Koi Fish

Since I have not had much time to stamp, I decided to move one of my favorites forward. 

This Koi was stamped on Clear-Lay plastic film with Stazon ink.  The background was done using watercolor paper, and spraying several colors of Adriondack color wash, after I sprayed the paper with clear water.   (Spray outside)  After it was dry I sprayed it with some home made pearly spray, and spotted here and there with gold metalic ink.  A friend in Maine had sent me the glittery paper I layered it on.  I  attached the film to the BG with black brads. 

I really like this card, and hope you enjoy my efforts.  As always, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, and I love it when you leave a message.  Enjoy your week!
