Two More Carp

The Catch of the Day was stamped and embossed on a blue cardstock panel and then colored with twinkling H2O's. I added chalks in the background for different shades of blue, and stamped waves with Judikins's crashing waves stamp. The fish panel was layered with crumpled copper foil paper and coordinating cardstock. I stamped the Japanese Fisherman in turquoise ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using a wave image from Stonehouse Stamps, I created a left and bottom border with copper ink and embossing powders and placed the cut out fisherman in the corner, looking into the fish panel. The Japanese Fisherman and the Catch of the Day are both available on Taylored Stamps Marine Sheet 2.

I stamped the Leaping Koi in waves image with black ink and embossed it with detail black embossing powders. The water and fish were colored with twinkling H2O's. I added a portion of the large wisteria vine stamp from Beeswax at the top of the panel, and colored some of the flowers and leaves with Tombow markers. I added some chalks to the background to get some sky colors. The finished panel was layered with a black panel to a folded white card. Leaping Koi is also available on Taylored Stamps Koi and Crane Sheet.
