Charlene - Glittered Koi


Designer: Charlene Merrick (Lilluvsstampin)
Date Posted: August 21, 2011
Keywords: DOLCE, Local King Rubber Stamp
Category: Encouragement
Stamps: KOI FISH by Local King Rubber Stamp
Ink: Stazon Black, Cool Carribean
Embellishments: Mark Richards Nailheads Metal Stickers
Tools: Orange, Blue, Smoky Quartz, and Gold Glitters, modern label punch, embossing folder, sponge dauber
Paper
: Whisper White, Blue Mulberry, Acetate

I tried something new to me with this card: I “colored” the koi fish image with glitter. Using black Stazon ink, I stamped the image onto clear acetate. I flipped it over and applied Glossy Accents and the various colors of glitter. I found it easiest to cut the image before applying the glitter. It sparkles so pretty in real life. I embossed the blue mulberry paper with a bubbles embossing folder.
