We are also having a collaboration this week with the team from Faber-Castell - Design Memory Craft division, so be sure to check that out too over at the Stampendous Impressions Blog! There are prizes to be had!
Here's what I created for you today:
Due to severe allergies, there are no four legged pets in our house. But, we've had fish several times (you know why I have to say several times!), and used to put some big goldfish in our pond each summer. Used to...until the heron stopped by one day for lunch and punched a hole in our liner! We decided water lilies are pretty too.
To create the Koi and background, I used the Dreamweaver Koi stencil, LG613, the I Beams stencil, LX7028, with Regular Embossing Paste. After the paste was dry, I put the clean, dry stencil back over the design and colored with Faber-Castells beautiful PITT Pastel Pencils from the red/yellow set, blending the colors with a 1/4" stencil brush. I used the black from the neutrals set to add a little shading on the fish.
Be inspired by these team members too!
