See fish. See fish swim. See fish heat embossed with clear powder (=shiny) and then painted with Distress Inks used as watercolors. Yep - a favorite technique with a new twist - after seeing Heidi V.L.'s beautiful card. I was going to use watercolor pencils, but I only have a few standard colors. Couldn't resist the spectrum of colors with Distress Inks...
The stamp actually did all the work. I just colored it in. Paintbrush. Water. Made me feel like an artist. Again. Oh the fun I'm having lately! A sentiment on a piece of patterned vellum (cuz I couldn't bring myself to cover up too many fish) with a little strip of PP for interest. Ta da.
