Perfect pearls Koi tag

I told you it would be a very short break from the koi.... ;-)

I can't help it.... the stamp makes me do it!! I blame Nicole Wright Designs as she designed this stamp set!!

I wanted to make a tag with multiple colours of mica powders. I love the look on a black background.

I stamped the koi with perfect medium, I prefer that to embossing ink as it is tackier and doesn't smudge when you use your brush.

I used white on the face of the fish, gold on the fins and orange on the body. I wanted to create dimension and movement, and not a uniform image.

I love the little splashes that come in this stamp set. So I stamped them around the koi and dusted them with a blue powder.

Initially I wanted to stamp waterlilly looking flowers but I have a problem.....no waterlilly stamps in my collection!!!! So I have to go on a hunt for those... or some die cuts..

So I opted for some stamps from my SU stippled blossoms set and stamped the leaves and flowers on the bottom of the tag. The leaves are dusted with a green powder and the flowers with a white one, and the heart with purple mica powder.

I stained a piece of crinkle ribbon with a soft blue, to compliment the splashes. I made a fluffy bow and the tag is done...

I love the Japanese look of this...

Thank you for stepping by and I hope to see you again some time.

Take care,
Frederique
