Sunday 27th January

Hello!

Another sunny day, how lovely!  Today's card was made using the koi stamp from Designsbyryn.com.  I had great fun making the background squares yesterday.  I scribbled Tombow pens on watercolour paper, then sprayed with water that contained a little silver mica powder to give it a sheen.  Then I sprinkled on some sea salt to get that 'blooming' effect.  Some of the salt stayed on the paper, and I think it gives extra texture to the background.  The koi were stamped onto paper that had previously been sprayed with dylusions ink, squeezed orange and lemon zest, then I cut them out.  A few dots of liquid pearls and it's done!  Hope you like it!
