I spritzed the image and set it aside. With the other Koi in the set I created a resist. While that cooled I grabbed my Versamark pen and used it for the Koi then coated it in UTEE which creates a thick wet look.
I used distress sprays tumbled glass and twisted citron over the resist. It created a pretty watery background making the resist Koi pop. Once dry I used my Bubbles stencil and texture paste for bubbles.
I found by adding a little heat to the texture paste it puffs up a little. perfect for adding some blueprint sketch distress ink.
I cut the greens from garden greens die on grungboard. With the negative cut I thought it might be a nice layer so it became a stencil. Perfection...
I sprayed the green cuts with twisted citron and lucky lover. With the left over distress spray ink on the mat I could ink my ribbon and create a quick background I had already stamped. Just set aside when you need a background.
I added some more ink to the greens. Then I looked at my UTEE. I added some to the greens and the enamel makes it look like their are droplets of water. More watercolor paper and the Jumbo Tattered Floral die!
I need a Lily flower so the small flower from the Jumbo Tattered Flower die. Spritzed with yummy abandon coral and water. Crinkle, pinch and ink the edges. Then I added an antique silver metal button charm from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.
I popped the Koi up on 3D Foam squares so I can tuck things in behind. Then I grabbed the "Remember to make memories" stamp from the Fallen Blossom set.
Layer it all up and check out this watery Koi fish stamp. I love how my Distress inks, markers and sprays make this Koi look vibrant.
The sentiment is stamped over the resist and texture paste bubbles. It's broken up and I love it. I almost covered it up... NAH...
I love the Lily in the corner with some added tiny tattered floral flowers rolled and not rolled. Adding UTEE added a thick watery look to the Koi fish stamp and garden greens cuts.
The Koi looks like he's swimming under the flower and greens!
