love "Koi" - what???

they're beautiful "goldfish" type fish.....not a fish person but I believe that's the "type" of fish they are....they are beautiful!!  had a friend years ago who had a HUGE specially built fish pond thingy that had these fish in it....they were beautiful, varied in colors and actually pretty big. There were gorgeous water lilies growing across it and everyone always enjoyed sitting on the edge and watching them....but Friends moved....sold their home...new owner trashed the pond!  no fairy tale fishy story LOL

Have been wanting to use this set since I got it last month...finally got it inky for Vicki's sketch challenge over on STV...will also go to the JUGS color challenge this week!

let's see....the background is the Shaving Cream Technique (with pale plum, sage, pretty in pink) and colored with Copics. The cs is from SU (pale plum, sage, white), CB folder, nesties and stash ribbon!
You can see this whole set here from Gina K by Asela called "By Your Side"!

Concentrated on the sketch so much that I forgot JUGS had a twist on their color challenge to make the card a Birthday Card to celebrate Lisa's B-Day...so did the inside!
Happy Birthday Lisa!


now have to stop - go get some groceries (much needed!), get back here and get dinner going so I can get back to some stamping!!!!

have a beautiful weekend!

Really great Linda. Love the out of the box technique and the way it all looks to jump right off the card. The swirls embossed on the circles really give a sense of the movement of the fish.
