With so many terrific stamps, debuting in our new 2017 Catalogue, it was hard to decide on one, but the Koi Dreams stood out as a great opportunity for Bringing Paper to Life. I started with a whipped cream card base and created a background on a second piece by spraying 4 different splashes. I love working with a variety of media and watch the colors blend together to create new tones, and hues. I stamped the Koi Fish with the ink, and then embossed with white embossing powder. Once cool, I painted the Koi with Citrus cooler silk, and later rubbed it off to create a texture look. I stamped the waterlily with Lavender fusion ink and cut out the fish and waterlily. You can tell I love bling; thus you will find lots of sparkle silk throughout the background, and the koi and lily. I added silver thread wrapped twice around the background and tied in a pretty bow. Sparkle drops were added in various areas of the background.
It’s always fun to work with sprays and silks because the results often surprise you. Our vast media options give so many opportunities for Bringing Paper to Life.
