Good Morning,

I love today’s project! It turned out just as I had hoped. I had seen a short video clip of swimming koi and noticed many of them had large areas of white on them.

I thought about how I could achieve this.

As with my previous card using the smaller fishes; I used the Stamparatus to build the layers.

Using sponge daubers to apply the ink; I started with a little bit of Gray Granite. Added Poppy Parade around the head and tip of the tail, then added some Pumpkin Pie.

I was careful not to add ink to the middle of the body. The final step was inking the whole thing with versamark. This was stamped twice to ensure good coverage and then heat embossed with clear powder.

Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam ink was added around the fish to bring out the “white” parts and the illusion of water. A light spritz with water added to the effect.

The final piece was mounted on to Gray Granite card stock and then a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Ihope you like this as much as I did.

The supplies used are listed below and linked to my 24/7 online store.
