I love creating this chalky effect!
I popped cut the head and body of the Koi and popped them up with 3D Foam Squares.
I added the wordband to the bottom and hammered the metal brads.
I used a gradiant effect for the metal top and bottom. Starting with Black Soot distress paint then layering the candied apple, carved pumpkin and mustard seed. Once I distressed the painted effect I added a coat of UTEE for a liquid effect.
A little arrow adornment...just because.
The UTEE makes this watery look for the base.
I went a little off track but not much.
I hope you liked my take on this months tag. I am thrilled to be using my new stamps Uptream for the chalky Koi Fish.
These start shipping in February. They can be purchased online or you can work with your LSS to start carrying them. I have more releasing throughout the year!
You can find them though Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.
Thanks for stopping by!
