My new Concord & 9th turnabout stamps arrived and I just couldn’t wait to try them out. Created this marbled background first using different Distress Oxides to get the effect. Using a fine glue pen I added some glue here and there and then burnished some gold foil in those areas. Cut it down to the right size and added to a small piece of black paper for a border.
Added some Gina K ribbon about two thirds down and then added the Koi die cut on top. I also used the same foiling technique on him for added interest. Added some tiny gems for bubbles and a sentiment hello. Decided to enter it into the following challenge even though it doesn’t follow the sketch exactly:
