Layered Koi


The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Clean and Simple.

Now I'm a Dt member for AAA Cards Challenges and our CAS rules are much more CAS than I see around me, but I've stuck to  my style, even if it's too empty for most ;-), it's how I roll.

Showcasing Hero Arts I've used the layering Koi. the first layer I've stamped with a really pale Lilac from Memento (Lilac posies) as I can't stamp white on white, tried pale blue and grey too, didn't like those. I thought if skipping that layer, but it also stamps the "whiskers"so kinda had to.

for the body I've used red and orange colors,

Morrocco and Ochre, the black is Versafine ink. Let it dry (not long enough) then cut it out as best as I could.

For the background I've inkblended Distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean. Splattered with water and Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and the silver or iridescent color in the Fintec Pearl palette for shimmer.

Stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps (Simple Sentiment Strips), mounted the koi with foamtape adhered it to the card, then added a few clear/silver rhinestones as bubbles.
