Here's a card that I ended up giving to my father. In it I used Koi Set and Water Droplets from my collection. The background colour is Dylusions Ink Sprays and the stencil behind the Koi is from istencil.
Koi was coloured with Tombow markers and highlighted with Stickles and a white gel pen. I love making ribs in the fins with white. Underneath him and in other areas of the card I used glass seed beads to create texture. The thought to "glue" them to the page with Glossy Accents randomly popped into my head as I was making this card. Love how it turned out!
To make the Water Droplets "pop" I lifted some of the colour out of them (wetting and then soaking up the water and colour with a paper towel) and then highlighted the bottoms and top reflection with a white gel pen. Oh, and while I'm taking about Water Droplets. I'll have more in stock by April 1st. Thanks to everyone for being patient.
Well that's it from me today. Thanks for visiting :)
Just beautful Ryn, the water droplets are one of my faves and this koi is great. Love all the shades of colours and textures you used xReplyDelete
This is so full of colour and I love the idea of using the seed beads, and sticking them down with Glossy Accents, and also the stencil you have used behind the Koi and the water droplets in the opposite corner give it balance, and those water droplets look so real. A beautiful card and your father must have loved it. You are so talented Ryn. xReplyDelete
